30 Day Song Challenge – Day 23 – A Song You Think Everyone Should Listen To

Today’s challenge invites us to share a song we think everyone should listen to.  This is another one that’s difficult because it’s so very broad, and also because I’d tend to want to pick a song that everyone might not have hard already.   Most classics are classic for a reason, after all.

My pick isn’t really obscure, since it’s been around a few years and he’s reasonably well known at this point, at least in the circles I move in.  But it’s has become, easily, my favourite Christmas song, and now that we’re past Thanksgiving and properly into the Christmas music season, I figure I’ll share it for today’s entry.

So, here’s Tim Minchin, with “White Wine In The Sun”.

    Rob Wynne, your old baby siter is a simple girl who doesn’t know some of the music you have posted about, but I have enjoyed listening to all the different songs on these posts. I especially like White Wine in the Sun.

      What I’ve really enjoyed most about this whole exercise is all the sharing. I’ve discovered a few new things myself in the process. <3

    Especially at a time full of climate change and climate change deniers:

    People may know the England Dan [Seals] & John Ford Coley version/cover of this better than the original.

    I was re-introduced to this one during the “Songs of Hope & Kindness” circle at Chessiecon this weekend. Beautiful sentiment.

    A surprisingly tough category. Trying not to think about it too much: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnQ8N1KacJc

    Once again, a story song. I’m currently reading Silent Night, the Story of the WWI Christmas Truce, which is the real events behind this fictional story. https://youtu.be/sJi41RWaTCs

    Tough to choose a song everyone _should_ hear, but have _not yet_. I think this fits that description. https://youtu.be/EELEjeYzfjM

    “Lost In the Stars,” from “Cry, the Beloved Country”.
