Over the years I seem to have unwittingly recorded quite a bit of "Holiday" music - from BBC2's Christmas themes to Dr Elmo's "Santa ain't comin" (of Grandma got run over by a reindeer fame) to Cyndi Lauper's CD "Merry Xmas . . have a nice life" to my own "Music for Winter Festivals" to Happy Charles "The Christmas Dream" and so on, and on . . .
In the heady days of the internet revolution my reggaefied version of "Good King Wenceslas" was a number one on mp3.com! and whilst on tour in Japan I heard various self penned Xmas ditties blaring though the airwaves . . . but my biggest thrill was a reviewer who said my Xmas music was the strangest thing he'd heard since David Bowie and Bing Crosby recorded the Little Drummer Boy . . . Praise indeed!
Anyway here's a selection of 11 tunes recorded over the years that i have put up for downloading until 6th January at
My thought is to raise money for the Angels 4 Taegan fund
by downloading and donating
Visit http://www.angels4taegan.com to find out all about this little girl and her remarkable mother Michelle who is doing everything possible to raise the money to afford the hydrotherapy treatment she believes her daughter, who was recently diagnosed with cerebal palsy, would benefit from.
Read the Angels 4 Taegan blog for the latest news.
I have nearly 700 my space friends . . if each person downloaded one song and donated ONE DOLLAR that would raise $700.
So Happy Holidays - Enjoy the music and I hope you can donate something! All contributions gratefully received.
