The Playlist: December 2012 Archives
Monday December 3, 2012
For December, we're putting together our favourite CanCon Christmas tunes.
- We kick things off with a Wham! cover from Ohbijou: "Last Christmas."
- You might remember the Crash Test Dummies for going "Mmm mmm mmm", but they also have a great rendition "The First Noel."
- Here's one from a trio of east coast musicians: Rose Cousins, Jill Barber, and Meaghan Smith with "The Little Drummer Boy."
- A request from McBride's Joyce Godfrey: Roy Forbes' "Mincemeat Pie" (or the cover by Susan Englebert).
- Brian Burke from Quesnel request "Mary's Boy Child", so we played a CanCon rendition from Nova Scotia's Ginty.
- At the suggestion of Jennifer Ferries, one chanteuse covering another: Joni Mitchell's "River" as performed by Sarah McLachlan.
- Lawrie Fawcett in Massett has a tough one: a live recording of Holly Cole, Rebecca Jenkins, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Jane Siberry and Victoria Williams singing "Carol of the Bells" of of the 1994 album Count Your Blessings.
- A short but sweet modern classic: Ron Sexsmith and "Maybe This Christmas."
- Here's one for everyone on the west coast: Said the Whale and "Christmas Under the Clouds."
- Here's one from Stan Rogers we hope isn't too close to home: "At Last I'm Ready for Christmas."
- Deborah Leonard request Sharon, Lois and Bram's rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
- Catherine Hallady, who writes "I love 'Do you hear what I hear' performed by Canadian artists...Beverly Mahood, Julian Austin, Jason McCoy, Adam Gregory, and Michael Burgess."
- From Tom Clement: Bruce Cockburn's "Mary Had A Baby."
- And our most requested song: Tom Jackson's "The Huron Carol."
