Christmas Music 4

Day 4 of my “late Advent calender” to you guys. If I were a more organized and inspired man I would have started a song a day from the start of December. Never mind…

Elton John. That’s a name everybody must know, and we all know “Step Into Christmas” his most famous Christmas song. Well, here’s the B-Side from that record and I think it’s not half bad…
