My favorite Christmas songs


So this is Christmas...

the time of the year when we basically forget about our computers and focus on the important things in life... eating yourself sick with your whole family.

No Christmas would be complete without a good selection of seasonal music that accompanies us every year, here is my favourites on the subject:

1. John Lennon - so this is Christmas

This song brings back old memories of one of my first Christmases I can remember (surely because the song has about 30 years).

2. Wham! - Last Christmas

A nemesis of polish radio for the past 10 years. Just no holidays without it.

3. Bobby Caldwell & Vanessa Williams - Baby It's Cold Outside

Song written in 1944 by Frank Loesser though the years had a lot of great interpretations but my favorite one is from the '96 Vanessa Williams album - Star Bright. BTW she is a very beautiful woman ;)

4. Skaldowie - z kopyta kulig rwie

This is a polish song from 1968 so you probably wouldn't understand much, but the main theme here is a sleigh ride through the forest (you can find some places that still do it by horse).

5. Chris Rea - Driving Home for Christmas

This list isn't in any particular order because my private Christmas "experience" starts with listening to this song while driving in a snowy, icy road through the forest. The best song ever!

6. Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas is You

Very warm song performed by the pop diva brings up very warm feelings for sure. This will worm us up in those long and lustrous winters to come.

7. Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton - Winter Wonderland

Some might say it is a bit corny, in my opinion its a beautiful song that has a lot of positive energy, plus the young Dolly Parton was surely something warming up to look at ;)

Well folks, this concludes my list, feel free to add suggestions to the list,
Have a quiet holiday with your families.
