Boxing Day 2012
I've been listening to a lot of music, even more so lately ... I guess because it's Christmas time!! I made a list of Christmas songs for Amy to buy for us for Christmas Day ... here's some of my favourites ...
- Santa Baby, Madonna
"Put a sable under the tree, for me!!" yay!! the ultimate material girl and all-time clever chick, i love Madonna!
- Here Comes Santa Claus, Elvis
a fun, dancey piece. Amy bought me an Elvis Teddy that plays this song and wiggles his "Elvis" hips, lol!!
- Rocking around the Christmas Tree
- Jingle Bell Rock
and yet more dancing!! :)
- I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, the Jacksons
I love Michael Jacksons early music with his brothers, although i get a bit nostalgic and misty - DOH!!
- Driving Home for Christmas, Chris Rea
Actually i think this is my favourite of all, kind of swingy and upbeat but modern and sweet and sentimental, v romantic.
Can't beat this either, i love it!!
- Do they Know it's Christmas, Bob Geldof and mates
another misty one
- Grandma got run over by a Reindeer
I sing this really loud when i have the opportunity!! lol!!
- Let it Snow, Dean Martin
you guessed it ... :)
16 May 2012, top 10 for today
(in no particular order!)
- Kaw Liga, Charlie Pride
I loved the whole album but this is the one that's been in my mind lately!! I love that I can sing along and nearly get it right if I breathe right from my diagphram. Good beat and soulful lyrics, great singer.
- Thunderbirds theme
my new ring tone on my cell phone - yay!! i love the thunderbirds, my most favourite tv show, i was watching thunderbirds when out new COLOUR tv was delivered, it was the first show i watched in colour - fantastic!!
- forever Tuesday morning, the mockers
good old kiwi music - you can't beat it!! they were playing New Year in Onerahi when Den and i were about 20 years old, standing room only - best concert i've ever been to!
- Flower Duet, Delibe's Lakme
I'm ashamed to say i've never been to the opera!! all those years studying music and NEVER been to the opera - what's with that? I have to admit it's not my absolute favourite genre, the problem is I can't sing with it, I muff it and start giggling!! but I do love trying, particularly with this one, it's so beautiful ...
- Everything's gonna be alright - Babysitters circus
I love the beat and the rhthym, I love the lyrics and best of all I love the internationally sounding kiwi!! a great upbeat song!!
- Everybody loves somebody, Dean Martin
who else?? just the most wonderful smooth, smooth voice. great ballad, lovely cruisy music to try and belt out!! lol!!
- Where is the love, Black Eyed Peas
more deep and meaningful than one might realise on first hearing, it's more of a prayer and I guess that's why I like it, I'm not a deeply religious person but I like that the Black eyed peas felt strongly enough to sing it. There is a section of lyrics that's annoying because they're wrong, they use 'turn the other cheek' with a wrong meaning, but I'm getting over it at last.
- Smoke gets in your eyes, the Platters
I love anything from the Platters but this one was my grandmothers favourite, she and my grandad were married at 16 and were very close all through their married life, he had a big hearty laugh and a ready smile and she was slim and always sat with her legs curled up underneath her at the kitchen table. They died when I was 7 years old, a few months apart, I remember Mum's despair at their passing.
- It's my party, Lesley Gore
a good party song for a bunch of girls to belt out!! great fun!! I really love 50's & 60's music.
- Drive by, Train
a good beat and easy to sing to, I love train!!
