Christmas Playlist December 20Christmas Playlist 2019

What’s on your Christmas playlist? Are there ‘go to’ songs that you only listen to at this time of year? Maybe they remind you of a particular season in your life. They bring back childhood memories. It’s was a loved one’s favourite song. They get you dancing.  For many, Christmas officially begins with the first hearing of the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl or Chris Rea belting out their Christmas classics. Songs help to make Christmas. They always did.
The first Christmas was accompanied by songs that went on to shape the globe. Eclectic songs by Elizabeth, Mary, and Zechariah, not to mention the awesome Angels Choir, alternative talent, The Shepherds, and surprise hit from two pensioners, Simeon and Anna. Two thousand years later, these original songs are still being covered again and again; in to every language, culture and music style. They’re firmly part of our Christmas playlist.
