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

    I love his voice in this very special Christmas song. So much like the old time ‘crooners’. He must have really enjoyed that era of singing. Wonderful post! I loved listening to the interview. 🎄🎁🐦

      1. We definitely have:( Well, I did for one day but so far it has been one thing after another that’s kept me from really enjoying it or having much of a good time. I fell face first in the parking lot after getting my eye exam, so I busted up both knees, my right elbow, hand, and shoulder when I tried to stop from hitting my face smack into the pavement. So I’m covered with scrapes and bruises and my left knee is swollen. And I messed my back up from the impact from where I already had my 3 herniated discs. I’ve been resting, icing, and all that, but I ended up having to go get my knee looked at just in case, and it’s not broken but just badly bruised. But today we were in the ER with my daughter who woke up with a 102 fever, crying she had a headache, and complaining of her neck hurting…I immediately thought meningitis, and so did her pediatrician who sent us on to the ER. It wasn’t, thank God. But she has a severe case of Strep throat-again! She just finished antibiotics for that on Dec 2nd!! And so did I!! And you guessed it, I tested positive for it too and for a sinus infection, ugh! So we are both back on antibiotics, and she is out of school until Thurs, which is their last day until holiday break, so I am like “what is the point??”. I’m hoping that this week is much calmer since we’ll both be taking our meds and chilling. Only 3 weeks left of break, and I want some of it to be enjoyable and relaxing although she can’t help being sick 😦 I’m going to put her in a bubble though!!

        1. Oh my gosh! Are you okay? Ugh. I hope you’re not in a ton of pain. That sounds seriously painful. I’m so sorry. I hope you heal quickly and your daughter too. I remember you mentioning the antibiotics! What luck. I surely hope her fever is down too because that’s the worse. I’m glad you both will be able to have some resting at home though.

          Whatever happened to getting out for Christmas break like around the 18th? I just remember having plenty of days before Christmas and our schools are keeping them all the way up until Friday. Balanced calender or something?

          You guys take care of yourself. Message me if you want to chat! I don’t want to bother you. I wish I loved closer! I’d make you guys a huge pot of chicken soup. Much love and hugs. ❤❤❤

        2. You’re too sweet! Thank you for the well wishes and everything! I wished we lived closer too ❤ I'd love the pot of soup, but I'd love being near you even more!!

          I'm not in as much pain as I was yesterday although my knee keeps throbbing and locking up. I think it will for awhile or at least until the swelling and bruising goes away. I really was lucky not to hit my face and head the way I fell.

          Thanks! Yeah, I can't believe she has strep again! This is crazy; she has been in 3 antibiotics in 7 weeks for strep 2x now and for 2 ear infections. She can't catch a break and of course I get strep when she does because my immune system is shot right now, urgh! I think there might be a strep carrier in her class, but who knows. She's prone to strep, so she might just need them out like both her brothers had to have! She's still got a fever and feels yuck, but I hope she feels better tomorrow! The antibiotic needs to kick in soon!

          They go a half day here on Thurs and are out Fri, but I remember when the boys were her age that they seemed to have a full 2 weeks out for Christmas, like you said around the 18th! I know we did when I was in school. It's crazy! I think they are trying to squeeze too much in to the school year. I hate it, and we are seriously considering homeschooling her next yer for 3rd grade since she is miserable…I've told you before how she has such severe anxiety about school and it just doesn't seem worth it. We'll see!!

          I'll chat with you! You're not bothering me; I've just been resting with her, etc. And I still haven't done my Christmas cards, hahaha! Or any baking, which is disappointing, but I don't want my strep germs in any food..yuck! But my outdoor decorating is done! Woohoo! Talk to you soon! Love and hugs, my friend!! ❤ ❤ ❤
