As soon as I went to open iTunes to decide on this weeks Guilty Pleasure, this song just came into my head! Suddenly by Angry Anderson.
I had this song on vinyl single – I loved it and I played it over and over again, I loved the B Side too ‘Falling’.
Any Neighbour’s fan from the 80’s knows this song from Scott and Charlene’s wedding.
So as it’s Christmas tomorrow this week’s guilty pleasure songs come from my favourite Christmas film Elf.
Now I love these two songs anyway but I LOVE even more the way they are featured in Elf. Just watching these clips makes me smile! If you haven’t seen this movie, then you really must.
Baby It’s Cold Outside – as sung by Elf and Jovie.
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
Enjoy! And remember, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
Merry Christmas Everyone
Not only is this song, Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now one of my favourite songs from the 80’s (I was six when it was released) but it’s also from one of my favourite movies – Mannequin.
As its approaching Christmas its only right that the new few guilty pleasure songs are Christmas related. This guilty pleasure isn’t just a song, but a whole album.
John Denver & The Muppets – A Christmas Together.
At Christmas in our house, this is the CD that’s played, without fail every Christmas Day we would listen to this CD. Its the music I grew up on.
A few of my favourite songs are:
Alfie the Christmas Tree
The Twelve Days of Christmas
Christmas is Coming
Now this final song has story behind it, I was singing it at work and a friend of mine said she’d never heard it. So I started talking about John Denver & The Muppets and again, she hadn’t heard of it. (She’s young, so we’ll blame her poor music taste on that). Then an American lady I worked with spoke up and said, I know that CD, you’re like the only other person I know that has it! And that sparked the start of mine and Ali’s Country Music/Gig Friendship.
And remember, in the words of Buddy the Elf:
