So are you tired yet of hearing Christmas Music? Is a “White Christmas” driving you up the wall on holiday rotation? There’s no escaping it, it is everywhere every stations is make the switch to the yuletide format.
Just a few day ago Michael Buble’s ‘Christmas’ Squeaks Past Nickelback to Take No. 1 on Billboard 200
Other note worthy Christmas Cds are ‘Glee’s’ Christmas CD, Justin Bieber’s and Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ (the most selling Christmas CD of All times)
More and more stores and radio channels have been switching their formats to Christmas Music – a consistent winner in the Christmas season.
But what does that mean to us who live in the Caribbean?
Over the years it has gotten harder and harder to find a really good really got Parang (Christmas soca), Reggae, or Dancehall CD. As a lover of all music. I enjoy the songs of a Caribbean Christmas. Some of my favourites are Law Saw’s Wishing for a Rich Man for Christmas and Wayne Wonder & Baby Cham – Warm Jamaican Christmas ( A True Classic).
