The 4th Christmas CollectionI can not walk into a shopping mall these days without being terrorised by Wham, John Lennon, Bing Crosby or Band Aid. I am so fed up with these so-called Christmas classics.
And that's why I make my own compilations and listen to them. So get this 4th Christmas Compilation and join in.
But even when I play my own selection I should look out not to listen too often to (for instance:) the hilarious "Marley & Marley" by the Muppets, "The Christmas Song" by Sergio Mendes or "Lonely Christmas without you" by Mick Jagger & Joss Stone.
At this moment my favorite is the evergreen "Go Where I Send Thee" by the fabulous Joan Osborne.
Enjoy the music, and have a nice weekend.
