Hi,

It's that time of year, when I virtually play nothing but seasonal music.

As much as I like the usual; Wizzard, Slade, bing and Nat King Cole, I also love discovering more obscure dittys such as

Declan O'Rourke – Christmas Wine - Acoustic

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Christmas All Over Again

Karine Polwart – Merry Xmas Everybody

and Paper Aeroplanes – In the Bleak Midwinter

Please share any hidden gems you know of, or indeed just your favourite wintery tunes.

Mac

Been enjoying this of late, including this afternoon on a lengthy drive during which it seemed to rain non-stop for almost 200 miles.

Felt Christmasy earlier so listened to some Rage against the Machine.  May watch Die Hard tomorrow.  Best Christmas movie ever!
