Have I ever included Dean Martin before? I don’t think I have! Shame on me!
“Christmas Time is Here Again” according to the Beatles.
When was the last time we rocked out to a Christmas song with the Ramones? Whenever it was, it was too long ago!
Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty are here today with “Silent Night”
Donny Hathaway stops in today to sing us a song.
How ’bout we have “Christmas in Hollis” today?
You knew I’d be throwing more videos and songs up with part 2, part 3, etc. You knew. Because I can’t control myself. Yeah, sure, I probably should have just committed to 25 days of Christmas like most people, but I didn’t. I did NOT wake up on November 30 with vim and vigor to sprinkle on my Cheerios that morning and therefore did not plan out a full 25 days of celebration. So, this is one of those times you just have to play along with me and my silly human foibles.
We cool now?
Good. Cuz you’ll like this. I promise.
On the 2nd day of Christmas songs, Da Goddess gave to you — Bob Seger. A double dose!
This year, I’m starting off with the Kinks. I can’t believe I haven’t put them in the rotation before!
And because I love you, I’m adding a bonus! Okay, so maybe I also really love Bill Nighy and this song. But that just means I get to make all of us happy!
For your enjoyment, three of my favorite finds this week:
Leaf art (Delicate beyond imagination)
Superheroes in the style of the Dutch Masters (I died when I saw the last image)
I can’t put into words just how amazing these guys are, so just listen.
If we’re going to have to listen to Pharrell’s song “Happy” all the live-long day, please let it be because of this video. It’s the best!
Until someone comes up with something better, this is the only version I like. (Only valid entry that could possibly beat this one would have to include: Queen Elizabeth, Prince George, Prince Philip (Duke of Edinburgh), Prince Harry, Prince Wills and his lovely wife Dutchess Kate, adorable prancing puppies, frolicking foals, cavoriting kittens, maybe an albino hedgehog or two, and possibly Harry’s goat. They’d all have to be dancing, singing, playing, etc.
So, really, until any of you can make the above happen, I’m sticking with the nursing home version because it’s made of awesome genius.
It’s music time, my friends! I neeeeed to post some songs that have just been running around in my head. We’ll have this week be all about Three Dog Night, m’kay?
