Song notes:

1. Our grade level is singing this song in a performance next week and so it’s been on constant rotation this week. At least in my head.

2. Imagine 90 third graders singing their little hearts out and practicing the hand gestures.

3. I actually teared up the first time I saw them all on the risers.

4. {bonus comment!} I really didn’t like this song the first time I heard it and it has quickly become a favorite. For someone who hasn’t been crazy about the holidays or holiday music, I sure am glad to be finding some I like.

Song notes:

1.  By far, this is my favorite holiday song. At the time when it came out, I was trying desperately to figure out how I could be British and how I could marry a member of Duran Duran or Bob Geldolf.

2. This video explains why I’ve had so many mullets in my life.

3. I always tear up at the first Bono solo – “Thank god it’s them, instead of you.”

4. {bonus comment!} Watch Sting’s face. There are only 2 possible explanations for his dour expression.

a) He would pretty much rather be anywhere except that studio.

b) He hates Simon Le Bon’s guts.

You decide.

Before we get down to this Song of the Day business, I just want to wish my always delightful spouse a very happy 10th wedding anniversary. Love you, Sweets!

Song notes:

1. This song was included on a mix CD from one of my lovely readers and I can’t stop playing it. Thanks, @maripops!

2. Do I live under a rock? Why do I never have an idea what musicians look like until I do these posts? Glad to see someone other than me and Lisa Loeb rocking the big plastic glasses when we sing.

3. Clowns are wrong. That is all.

Song notes:

1. I remember hearing this song for the very first time – on the radio with my mom. We were driving over the Carquinez Bridge and I loved it from the start.

2. I bought the album within the week and played it relentlessly for years after. I listened to this weekend – in all its vinyl glory.

3. A girl from my high school performed an exact replica of this video complete with lip syncing and spot on costume for a talent show. It was mesmerizing.
