The final seasonal Music Monday is (probably) a little bit more familiar: it’s the Queen song and you can’t go wrong with a bit of Queen!
It was released as a single in 1984 and surprisingly, it wasn’t a massive hit (Brian May thinks this was because of the lack of a video; the fact it overlapped with “Do They Know It’s Christmas” may also have been a bit of a factor, though!), but it’s a gorgeous gem of a track.
If Tom Petty’s Christmas song is the one that gets your party started, Jona Lewie’s makes you think and Troika takes you for an afternoon sleigh ride, then this is how you close out the day. It’s a slow hug of a song to dance to when the kids are in bed and things are calming down.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little series and maybe you’ve found a new Christmas favourite. Music Monday will take a break next week and then the Elsehere Soundtrack will resume for the release of Valkyrie.
You can find my Christmas With a Twist playlist on Spotify.
That’s all for now. Happy reading and listening!
