Tuesday Tunes

Well now I’ve gone and done it. Gotten everyone in a Christmas mood.  Not that I haven’t had to hear the odd Christmas song strolling through walmart or any other store lately… sigh.  It’s TOO EARLY!

But it is December, and it is after Thanksgiving, so I guess I’m ready to open the porch to some Christmas tunes, although I don’t mind at all if folks post other songs besides 🙂

There are some Christmas songs I can listen to any time of the year though, such as this older one I “discovered” last year and absolutely love it…

Just in case there’s some folks on here who’ve never heard that song before, Downhere is a Canadian Christian band who’ve been around for about a decade or so, and one of the lead singers (featured on this song) Marc Martel has an amazing vocal range and can sing just about any style. Although he sounds just like Freddy Mercury, so much so that he is currently on tour with the official Queen “tribute” show Queen Extravaganza…

Here he is with the band for Freddy’s 70th Birthday Party in Montreux, Switzerland…

eh, oh right, we’re supposed to be Christmas, sorry…

I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy this new one by Chris Tomlin and the new band We the Kingdom any time of year as well,

I really like this band’s style as well. The band is ‘new’ although the members have been around the music industry for some time. According to their you tube page,  they are  “a multigenerational family of musicians, including producers and songwriters Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, NeedToBreathe, Bethel Music), Scott Cash, Franni Rae Cash, Martin Cash and Andrew Bergthold. The members of We The kingdom have been involved behind-the-scenes in songs that have been sung around the world, and now they are ready to tell their own story firsthand. Their sound is a blend of worship, vulnerability, and grit that is birthed out of decades of musical influences and a shared difficult experience that brought them together as a band.”

This one’s not quite as rowdy as their song Holy Water (which I love) but I really like this one too…

OK dang it I did it again, didn’t I.  Back to Christmas…

For a slower rock style I have to go with Zach Williams,

And for secular, I have to go with this one with their usual upbeat tempo that gets your toes tapping (and… another Canadian band 🙂 )  featuring fellow hoser Sarah McLachlan..

OK since I mentioned Canada a couple of times and hosers, I guess I ought to post this goofy rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas by the infamous brother duo “Bob & Doug McKenzie”

Eh.

These two were characters made famous for Canada’s Second City (SCTV) back in the 70’s & 80’s.  Played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas (no not Wendy’s Dave Thomas- the other one).  Other big name stars that came off of that show were John Candy, Harold Ramis and Cathrine O’Hara.

Well, I’m in a strange mood, not really ready for Christmas but the porch is wide open and awaiting whatever y’all are in the mood for posting!

Have a great evenin’ all!
