My Music Monday
What to do.....what to do????
The obvious thing would be to do a holiday song, no? But do one of the variations of the actual 17 xmas songs that exist? (Honestly, does anyone need another version of "White Christmas" or "Jingle Bell Rock"?)
There are some original songs out there too, but some are too kitsch for me (the Kinks' "Father Christmas" and you all saw my shiteous Pat Benatar post from a few years back).
I have a feeling I've done Greg Lake's "I Believe in Father Christmas" before, but a search of the blog tells me 'no'. I still think I did.
The YouTube title says it's Emerson, Lake & Palmer, but I'm thinking it's just Lake. Again, I could be wrong.
The song has got a good vibe and an underlying message that isn't all tinsel and holly. Since I was a young teen, the tone has always resonated with me.
That all said - I hope you enjoy your day.
