My Merry Christmas Announcement

Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

Here's another one...but I'm on the fence. I LOVE Johnny Mathis' version of Toyland. Have it on vinyl, CD and have seen it live several times. LOVE it. However, it does have that tinge of sadness when you get to the never returning part...or is that me getting overly gushy?

I like that version too. I totally agree--it's gorgeous but sad at the same time. There's a real wistful quality. (Of course I've been known to be overly gushy occasionally!)

I don't know if you are looking for any kids songs but Oscar the Grouch from Christmas Eve on Sesame Street sings, "I Hate Christmas". More of an angry tune than sad but it's dark and silly for sure! I am not sure that is exactly what you are looking for but that popped in my mind when I read your post.

I sure don't like to ever say, "I hate Christmas" but find myself singing right along with Oscar every time I watch that show! Santa knows I love Christmas.

I am tuned in now. Everyone else, hurry up! =)

I just got a big chuckle from, "an avalanche of folks requesting this show, okay, one request" Ha ha!!! I sure miss you RadioJonD! I need to get to listening again and/or recording your shows!
