Are you feeling Christmas-y yet?
There’s nothing quite like a festive melody to really get you in the Christmas spirit. I find that no matter how scrooge-like I might be feeling at any particular time, just the very opening drumroll of ‘Stop the Cavalry’ by Jona Lewie is enough to get me reaching for the mince pies and sherry, and a snippet of ‘Carol of the Bells’ will provoke an instant urge to begin ferociously wrapping presents.
For me Christmas music is one of the most necessary parts of this joyful season, and I’ll just as happily take the big punchy Mariah numbers with the gentle Kings Collage carols or the sultry indie tunes that no-one’s ever really heard of, as long there is always Christmas music.
Here’s a little collection of my current my favourites, I hope you enjoy it at least half as much as I do.
