Cole's Musical Christmas Advent Calendar - Day 19

It's December which means for those who have them, it's time to get out those chocolate advent calendars!

But for those of you who, like me, don't do such things anymore (and indeed for those of you who still do!), I thought I'd give my own unique little twist on this festive time of year with my Musical Advent Calendar countdown of my Top 25 favourite Christmas songs!

I'm blogging a song a day, culminating with my favourite on Christmas Eve. So let's continue on our seasonal countdown...

Cole's Musical Christmas Advent Calendar - Day 19!

Today we have my No.6 all-time favourite Xmas song. I probably fell in love with Brenda Lee's 'Rockin' Around the Chistmas Tree' when I heard it as an 8 year old on the soundtrack to Home Alone which introduced me to a wealth of wonderful American festive hits.

So here's that version from the sountrack followed by a modern take in the name of charity which I adore too by Mel and Kim.
