Fave Christmas CD this year


RRP $14.99
Following his well earned ARIA nomination (which I still think he should have won), the ever popular Jay Laga'aia brings us his latest festive celebration album with all the cherished favourite Christmas songs, in his own inimitable style.

As always Jay and his harmonious voice (with in islander twist) wins me over every time. It is not often I will listen to Christmas Carols as working in an office for a year that played Christmas Carols for Two months leading up to Christmas absolutely killed me and turned me off them something shocking.

But when I was sent Jay Laga'aia's CHRISTMAS AT JAY'S PLACE 
 For review purposes I thought I better listen in with the girls just to see their reactions and what they thought of the CD. It is fair to say I stayed in their room and listened to this CD with them right until the last song. The girls were all danced out and ready for sleep, so I tucked them in and called it a night- but not before I took the CD out of their player in their room.

I then went and retired in my room only to listen to a few tracks again, before falling asleep to Silent Night. I remember because I was in that light sleep and then when it finished I woke up in a shock and then turned it off and went to sleep.

The three tracks that I LOVE from this CD would certainly have to be-
  • Silent Night
  • Santa Claus is coming to town
  • 12 Days Of Kindy

As always Jay adds his twist to all these songs and the truly have that islander feel to it. This reminds me of the days in NZ when we all sat around the fire and somebody would have an acoustic playing away and covering bands with their own twists. I love Jays voice and love his takes on these songs. 

Hayley plays 12 days of kindy on repeat over and over and over again until she gets bored, which can be quite difficult.  But the other tracks are listed below.
