12 Days of Christmas – 5 poignant songs

Today is the 20th of December, not only is it 5 days until Mr Claus drops down chimmleys (or through the door at my house), but it’s also my Mum’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mum!


In the United States I listened to The Pigeon Detectives, Wait For Me. It’s a cracking album and my favourite song is probably Take Her Back



I first heard Awolnation’sSail” on the Youtube Video “Grinding the Crack”, but I started listening to it more regularly in Singapore and it’s an amazing song.



I first found out about Zion I in Zion National Park and after picking up his album love it! here is Family Business



Gomez have always been on the periphery of my musical knowledge but I got to see them live at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Here is one of my favourite songs from their albums:



Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is anything but new, but it reminds me of Coco Bongo’s in Cancun – the British Flag’s flew and we screamed along, the only one miserable was Irish Rob!
