All I have is a vague Sawyer Brown jumble moving between my ears so no Earworm Wednesday today.


Earworm Wednesday: Wexford Carol ~Celtic Woman

Here is a little known carol that has really great lyrics (featured below). Performed by Méav Ní Mhaolchatha of Celtic Woman

The Wexford Carol”

Good people all, this Christmas-time,
Consider well and bear in mind
What our good God for us has done,
In sending His beloved Son.
With Mary holy we should pray
To God with love this Christmas Day:
In Bethlehem upon that morn
There was a blessed Messiah born.

Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep;
To whom God’s angels did appear,
Which put the shepherds in great fear.
“Arise and go,” the angels said,
“To Bethlehem, be not afraid;
For there you’ll find this happy morn
A princely Babe, sweet Jesus born.”

With thankful heart and joyful mind,
The shepherds went the Babe to find,
And as God’s angel had foretold,
They did our Saviour Christ behold.
Within a manger He was laid,
And by his side the Virgin Maid,
As long foretold, upon that morn
there was a blessed Messiah born

Earworm Wednesday: Good King Wenceslas Metal Version

So I have been doing polls on Twitter to see which of the older Christmas carols people like best. Good King Wenceslas won the first poll.

The carol itself tells a completely fictional account of King Wenceslas enacting a miracle as he and his page are out to deliver food and firewood to a peasant seen gathering sticks to heat his hovel.

This metal cover is done by the band A hero for the world click on the link if you want to learn more about them.

Earworm Wednesday: I want it that way

Today’s earworm contains a bit of whimsy. My son showed me this video:

Well of course you know what happened. And trust me there is nothing worse than seeing a guy my age singing a Backstreet Boys song badly.

So with that in mind here is Postmodern Jukebox covering the song in their own unique way.

Earworm Wednesday: Daydream Believer Celtic Dance Remix

No I haven’t lost my ever loving mind. I want to state that from the beginning. As I was searching for a cover of the song that was playing inside of my head, all day, my son said to me. Why just a cover why not a techno remix. Which brings this to your listening pleasure as we both agreed it was the best of all the remixes.
