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.

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
Mostly known for instrumentals, they did include one or two songs with vocals on their albums,
Mostly, they did stuff like this next one. Steven, Gilbert, Jim, William Orten Carlton--Remember this?
