Monday's Music Moves Me: Christmas Carols

Amanda at Bloggin’ with Amanda hosts Musical Monday – What Move’s You?. You can get the instructions by clicking here.

Lorie at The Shrewbridges of Celebration, FL told me about Monday's Music Moves Me, so here's another cool music blog meme to do!

I've also discovered that my blog was chosen for the Spotlight Dance on The Monday's music Moves Me  meme this week!!  I'm so thrilled!!  Thank you!!  You really need to check these other blogs out!  There are many terrific blog and all month long, great Christmas music!!

All month long our theme is Christmas music.  I have several old time favorites, mostly from growing up Catholic and learning these hymns I grade school.   Today I have 2 old favorites, one of them is my daughter's favorite   One Christmas hymn that I've always loved was Adeste Fidelis.  You may also know it as O Come All Ye Faithful.  Nat King Cole has sung this song so beautifully!!!  Please enjoy his marvelous voice.

O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Adeste fideles,
Laeti triumphantes;
Venite, venite in Bethlehem;
Natum videte,
Regem Angelorum:

Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

Next up is Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing Little Drummer Boy.  This is Gina's favorite Christmas song   I must say I got quite filled up with this one.  I think this was my Dad's favorite Christmas song too.  Enjoy.

Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A new-born king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A new-born king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
to lay before the king pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum
so to honour him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
when we come

Little baby pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I stood beside him there pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I played my drum for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I played my best for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum
And he smiled at me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
me and my drum

Peace on Earth, can it be
Years from now, perhaps we'll see
See the day of glory
See the day, when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be
Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can

I pray my wish will come true
For my child and your child too
He'll see the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be
Can it be

Awesome music selections. Thank you for sharing.

I just found a link last night that you might like. This young man offers a free ten-day course on how to grow your blog. He must know what he's talking about because he has more than 1900 subscribers. I'm trying to spread the word to as many other bloggers as possible.

On a different note, have you met Lenny? I'd appreciate it if you could check out his blog and become a Follower. I've shared some of his talents here.

I truly hope this will help both you and Lenny. Thanks for looking at his blog. I think you will really like it. He's a great kid.

I love "Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing Little Drummer Boy." Research youtube for the version that shows them singing.

Run DMT said...

Great picks! I love that version of The Little Drummer Boy. I remember seeing the video on MTV years ago.

I had the Bing Crosby/David Bowie video up there, but it was removed. Copyright infringements with the Crosby people.

Lorie Shewbridge said...

Joanie... First, congrats again for being in the spotlight. You SO deserve it, you are always so supportive!
Second, I so love Christmas music and this is such a wonderful way to wake up, THANK YOU! These are two of my faves... especially Adeste Fideles, it just gives me a warm feeling inside.
Hope your Christmas plans are going well and looking forward to your picks for next week. HUGS!!

Congratulations Joanie for being in the spotlight dance this week!

Love your picks! Nat King Cole had the smoothest voice! And can't beat Bing! Love him singing White Chistmas too! I agree with Amanda, Crosby & Bowie...most definitely an odd pairing but I really liked it!
