This Week’s Pick:

Scott Weiland

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”

When Scott Weiland came out with a handful of classic Christmas songs, I just about flipped out. I couldn’t believe it and fell in love with all of the songs. For those of you who aren’t sure who Scott Weiland is, he was the lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, and a few others. If you were listening to the radio a lot in the 90’s, you might remember “Plush”, “Interstate Love Song”, or “Creep.” Many of his songs are still played on 90’s stations today.

If you get a chance to watch the actual music videos for these Christmas songs on YouTube, you’ll see that they gave them a traditional vintage feel which I thought was so unique. Plus, he had an awesome voice in my opinion. RIP, Scott. I really miss you!

I thought I’d share his cover of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” for today’s Music Monday. Below I also shared an interview with Scott regarding the song. Hope you enjoy!

 

Lyrics:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on your troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on your troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest place

So have yourself a merry little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
So have yourself a merry little Christmas

12 Days of Christmas

For my 4th day I’m going with #5 – Your Favorite Holiday Destination.

One of my favorite Christmas songs is “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays” by Perry Como. In fact, I was just listening to it yesterday while playing my old Christmas records.

Lyrics:

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home!

I met a man who lives in Tennessee, and he was headin’ for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Pennsylvania folks are travellin’
Down to Dixie’s sunny shore
From Atlantic to Pacific
Gee the traffic is terrific!

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you wanna to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home!

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly day
I met a man who lives in Tennessee and he was headin’ for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Pennsylvania folks are travellin’
Down to Dixie’s sunny shore
From Atlantic to Pacific
Gee the traffic is terrific!

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home!
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home!


I personally love being home for Christmas, but if I were to go somewhere else for Christmas I would choose a cabin in the snowy woods like the one below.

I’m happiest in the winter when everything is white and love the snow.

For me, snow makes Christmas extra special and I’m really hoping for a white Christmas this year.

Bowie is sure enjoying it!
