Florence + The Machine and Calvin Harris – Spectrum (Say My Name), The Rolling Stones – Doom and Gloom

This weekend I was putting up all our Christmas decorations and when I do this I listen to music.  Two songs that had me dancing while decorating are this week’s picks.  The first is a remix by Florence + the  Machine and Calvin Harris.  The song is Spectrum (Say My Name) and it just makes you want to let loose on the dance floor (and for those that have seen me let loose you know what I mean). Also check out Lover to Lover, Shake it Out and What the Water Gave Me on this album.  I was not overly crazy about this album when it first came out but it has grown on me.

The second song is by a band celebrating 50 years…The Rolling Stones.   The Stones released a new album called GRRR! This album contains mostly old songs but has a couple of new songs and the one that had me dancing Doom and Gloom and is one of the better songs that I have heard from The Stones in years.

Last week I said that I would post some of my Christmas favourites, here are my top five:

1. Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas

2. Pogues – Fairy Tale of New York

3. Bing Crosby & David Bowie – Peace on Earth – Little Drummer Boy

4. Alarm (or John Lennon) – Happy Christmas (War Is Over)

5. Al Green & Annie Lennox – Put A Little Love in Your Heart
