Merry (almost) Christmas!

Snow. From my classroom window

YES. It is Christmas Eve. There is no excuse to leave out the jingle bell. Some songs for your auditory glee.

SLOW CLUB: Christmas Baby Please Come Home

This is my favourite version of a Christmas song. I know every note!

LOW: JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS

I downloaded an alternative Christmas playlist this year, turned out this was the only song I like!

THE RAVEONETTES: THE CHRISTMAS SONG

LOUIS ARMSTRONG: ZAT YOU, SANTA CLAUS

This makes me want to be in a jazz bar, drinking whisky.

Unpacking Records

Today the sun has disappeared and  mist is shrouding the sky. I’m continuing to unpack my latest record purchases including this one, a record made in 1963 in aid of the world’s refugees. It feels like it came out even earlier – more outwardly cheerful than you might expect and full of classics. I love records that tell stories.  Sink into one of the song; this Ella Fitzgerald number.
