A Christmas medley

It’s Christmas. I suppose there’s practically no one here, so let’s have some fun and relaxation with music.

I never imagined I’d even think of offering you the Smurfs singing Christmas songs in Danish. (I had a weak moment at Kastrup airport one December. In case you wondered.) But then I thought, you all love The Killing, and go round trying out those very Danish sounding Danish words and names. So you will adore the Smurfs. Won’t you?

Here are Smølferne with Så er det jul alle smølfer, aka Merry Christmas Everybody.

I went travelling at Christmas time again and bought a Swedish Christmas CD.  I especially liked one track. Still had no idea quite how fun it would be to actually see The Real Group sing, rather than just listen to them. And this is top quality singing. (Sorry about the Smurfs.)

Here you have The Real Group with their Christmas medley. Four of them sing a mix of hymns and lighter seasonal fare, while the fifth member of the group keeps trying to sing his song. The other four constantly interrupt him, until they finally give in…

God Jul! And Hej!

  1. Loved that. Thanks!

  2. Vrolijk Kerstfeest en Gelukkig Nieuwjaar from Flanders. Thank you for all your bites throughout the year.

  3. Tack, tack!

    The kale and the porridge have been dealt with, and the ‘boys’ have gone to look for bargains in Waitrose… I feel as if I never need to eat again.

  4. If kale is grönkål, you can’t even buy it here anymore…

    Great music! Wonder how you would translate “hej tomtegubbar slå i glasen” to English. There are no little tomtegubbar on the British Isles, I fear.
