Christmas Songs


I am fully aware that is still November, but if I wait until December to ask about this I’ll be too late. Besides, once the Coke advert has been on telly it is fair game.

If you were around here last year (and my visitor stats suggest you probably weren’t, so hi! Thanks for joining us this year) you might remember that I ran a wee advert calendar type deal, with a Christmassy song every day of December until Christmas Day.
Well, I want to do it again this December, but I don’t want to just re-use everything posted last year, this is where I turn to you lot.
Readers, leave any suggestions down in the comments, ideally something I can post without getting sued, by a Scottish band/artist, with some kind of Christmas type theme.
Bands, anyone fancy donating something? I can set things to stream instead of download if it is something you want to sell instead of letting me give away and if you have it on Bandcamp that’ll be even better. If you have something up your sleeve you don’t mind sharing send a wee email to and I’ll be delighted to include you. Err, just songs though, no links to YouTube of you doing Slade at karaoke, please.

    To my mind, one of the best ‘Christmas songs’, if you can really call it that, is by Chris Flew – you can listen to it here. It just gets to me, this one. Another side of the Christmas story, really. Beautiful.

    Good shout Colin. I had that on the list for last year, but never managed to get it in.

    As the man puts it… “I’m holding onto next year, praying that it comes real soon.” Hope you can find the space this year. He is a (local) genius.

    To make sure I don’t forget this year Christmas on Ward #7 will be kicking off the Christmas songs on the 1st, I’ve written the post already and everything.
