Thread: Christmas songs

  1. #1

    Smile Christmas songs

    What's your favourite Christmas or New Year song? What songs do you associate with the holiday?

    As for me it's ABBA 'Happy New Year', and 'Last Christmas' by
    George Michael

    Yes, but it's got to be the Harold Darke setting (not that boring Elgar one - or is it Holst? - one of the two).

    I hate this song with the intensity of a thousand suns.




    Interestingly enough, Elmo (of Elmo and Patsy fame) was a veterinarian, too.

    Indeed, he is.

    And, it's a great song. Right up there with Christmas Don't be Late.
