Two of my favorite Christmas songs...performed by the Vienna Boys Choir

"O Holy Night" with lyrics


"Little Drummer Boy"

Come, they told me, pa rum pa pum pum
A newborn King to see, pa rum pa pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pa pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pa pum pum,
So to honor Him, pa rum pa pum pum
When we come
Little baby, pa rum pa pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pa pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pa pum pum
That's fit to give our King, pa rum pa pum pum,
Shall I play for You, pa rum pa pum pum
On my drum
I play my drum for Him
So to honor Him
Mary nodded, pa rum pa pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pa pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pa pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pa pum pum,
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pa pum pum
Me and my drum
When we come
Me and my drum

Louis Armstrong "What A Wonderful World"

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
and I think to myself..
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
and I think to myself..
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin' hands sayin' how do you do?
They're really sayin' "I love you"

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
and I think to myself..
What a wonderful world...
Yes I think to myself.....
What a wonderful world...

Happy New Year and God bless you!

Jeff Beck (once a member of The Jeff Beck Group and The Yardbirds) performing "Nessum Dorma" at the Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2010.

This is beautiful...I hope you listen...



Pavarotti performing the same "Nessun Dorma"

Lyrics in English:
No-one sleeps.... No-one sleeps,
Even you, O Princess,
In your cold room,
Watch the stars
Which tremble with love
And hope!

But my secret is locked within me,
No-one shall know my name!
No, no, I shall say it on your mouth
When the light breaks!

And my kiss will break the silence
That makes you mine!

(No-one shall know his name,
And we, alas, shall die!)

Vanish, o night!
Set, ye stars!
At dawn I shall win!

Wow that's a surprise. Who would have imagined the Yardbirds doing Puccini's famous piece Nessun Dorna? Here's several of the Yardbirds top hits. The original 1960's band included Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff beck at one time or another. They were one of the first bands to usher in the new era of rock.

Every time I heard this aria, performed by Pavarotti, I used to let the waterworks fly.
SO beautiful. I absolutely adore a tenor voice in opera.
But now I do not cry. I smile. The song that gets me EVERY time is "Time to Say Goodbye" ~ Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli.
It's on one of her CDs I have. "Classics". Also on there is Nessun Dorma. Her version of Ave Maria is VERY lovely.
