There’s relatives in the house, food being cooked, and every one is stressed out. It’s definitely Christmas. But you already knew that. So to cut a long story short, I going to post two of my favourite Christmas songs. One’s old, one’s new, but both are excellent.

Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting – Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I don’t know what it is about this song, but it’s almost certainly my favourite Christmas song. There’s something about the overlapping vocals, the playfulness of the lyrics, it’s just all lovely.

Glam Chops – Countdown to Christmas

Released only this year, Eddie Argos’ new glam rock outfit have made a perfect Christmas song. They clearly love the season, but aren’t overdoing the sentiment, it’s fun, it’s funny and it’s glam rock. What more could you want?

So all that leaves me to say is Merry Christmas, enjoy yourselves, and don’t drink too much kids. That’s New Years Eve.

PS. There’s been a mistake! Where I got the first track from, it was listed as being sung by Bing Crosby and Doris Day (and the file itself says that). Apparently it’s a common misconception. Since the original release, a lot of people have mistaken the reording for Bing Crosby and Doris Day, but it’s actually these two lesser known singers. Sorry!
