I was going to post the ultimate New Year’s song, “1999”, by Prince, but couldn’t find the actual video from the 80’s. Oh, well–can’t go wrong with ABBA, either! Happy New Year!
One of the weirder songs of Genesis’s middle period, and a personal favorite of mine. A superb cover of the original!
The Sunday after Christmas (referred to liturgically as the “Sunday within the Octave of Christmas [that is, in the eight-day period after Christmas, inclusive]), which is today this year, celebrates the Holy Family (Jesus, Mary, and Joseph).
It’s still the Christmas season (that lasts until Epiphany). So, for this Friday’s music, enjoy a couple hours of Christmas music!
The feast of the Holy Innocents is a good time to teach the children about their special patrons. There is also a traditional children’s blessing for the feast of the Holy Innocents that can be performed by the parents in the absence of a priest’s blessing at church.
