All I have is a vague Sawyer Brown jumble moving between my ears so no Earworm Wednesday today.
Here is a little known carol that has really great lyrics (featured below). Performed by Méav Ní Mhaolchatha of Celtic Woman
The Wexford Carol”
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.
So we are in the season of Advent which is the “time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas as well as the return of Jesus at the second coming.“*
Because of that this seemed a very appropriate song today.

Today’s Earworm is a song about the sovereign grace and mercy of the Lord.

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.
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.
Yes once again it is that special time of year where we shut off all the lights in the house and sing the Reformation Polka to drown out the cries of the trick or treaters. Sing it with me now:
Came across this one quite providentially while looking for another song. Liked what they were doing so much I decided to choose it for today.
