    The best sentiment FEED THE WORLD

    I love this song because it's so darn sad! It makes me cry...it's the undertone of sadness, as so many of us try to keep spirits up despite heart ache ­čś×Christmas can be bittersweet like that.

    Another vote for Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Two songs top my list: 1) Relax 2) Two Tribes

    Great songs for sitting next to the fireplace with family and sipping an eggnog.

    I used to really like, at least the melody, of Bing Crosby's White Christmas until I found out it was written as a holiday song for the American KKK.

    This isn't actually a Christmas song because it's from that old movie "The Greatest Little Whorehouse in Texas" but they play it at this time of year and I really like the sound of all of those beautiful women's voices together. I also like the very real expression on Dolly's face and the way she clasps each one of the ladies hands as she bids them farewell one by one at the end of the video.

    (Dolly explained that when she was a kid her parents were sometimes so broke that all they'd get for Christmas was a few pieces of inexpensive hard candy, each)


    This is another example of beautiful ladies (Shedaisy) singing and their voices in unison really get to me. (OK...I'm starting to see a pattern) LOL !

    I do enjoy the1984 Band Aid classic, "Feed The World." I've enjoyed the many videos of the making of that piece of music that have been uploaded onto YouTube. I remember the first time that I heard that song on the radio, here in Southern California. It was late afternoon, on a December day, getting close to sunset. My work colleague and I were coming back from the company's warehouse, picking up a few file boxes to be brought back to the office. And, as we were going over a Southern California freeway, with a bright, colorful, orange/yellow sunset off in the distance---the kind of sunset that happens this time of year---the chorus of that song....Feed the world, was playing on a local radio station. Nice. I didn't really know what the song was, but I would come to know later that month, as the month progressed. Best Regards, all
