Woods Christmas Tidbits

23rd December 2012      by: Tom Woods     

Around the Woods household at Christmas time, the voice of Perry Como can frequently be heard. It almost wouldn’t be Christmas to me without his voice. Here he is singing “Do You Hear What I Hear,” a song composed as a plea for peace during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962.

Now this second one may meet with some skeptics. I completely understand. It’s Jon Anderson of Yes singing “O Holy Night.” You have to overlook the cheeseball music. That is a tall order, as you’ll hear. But I love Anderson’s voice, and have for 25 years. I’m not so thrilled with the woman who joins in around 1:50, but I really do like Jon.

Unlearn the Propaganda!

    Hard to beat Nat King Cole for O Holy Night http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRfLl5OEDy8 , and this flash mob does a great job, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vnt7euRF5Pg O Holy Night at about 3:10, but all worth watching/listening to.

    Okay, so your last name is “Woods”, but this post has convinced me that you’re lineage is Italian.

    Too bad the Jon Anderson one is so marred with so much cheese. An arrangement like “Soon” or something would’ve made that so awesome!

    Merry Christmas to you and to your family, Tom !
    (Jon Anderson’s verstion is not too bad ! Still, for me Pavarotti is the version to beat; and I’m not even Italian)

    Just listened to the first 6 episodes of “How the Catholic Church built Western Civilization” . I was more riveted in my seat than if I had been to an action movie!
