I was introduced to Eclecticity today by Rowan Manahan, whose witty and informative blog I would recommend to anyone who likes to laugh and has to work for a living.
I sing in a choir and, it being the season, we’ve been singing lots of Christmas music. Yesterday, in fact, we barged on screen during the link after Home and Away on RTÉ two and sang ‘Ding dong merrily on high’, complete with santa hats. You can see it on the website until the end of the month – find ‘Monday 15th December part three’.
And so, via Eclecticity, I’d like to share this song with you, ‘Grown up Christmas list’. It’s performed here by Amy Grant and was written by David Foster and Linda Thompson-Jenner. (If you want an eye-watering biography, look no further than Mr Foster’s: the man is a legend!) This song has been recorded by a few big names, but I think this version is the most honest and touching. One for the virtual stocking…?
