Description
Took me ages to do this as a result of my returning from my holiday with Flu and Neuralgia (don't go on a hot holiday to return to a cold climate Grrrr!) left me feeling very rough. My voice was left very weak and i had to keep changing keys before I got it something like.... it was hard too to try doing different lyrics for a Christmas song, but I just went for it anyway. Hope you like this.... all the best to all M.

Lyrics
Everyone Loves Christmas

Everyone Loves Christmas,There’s such a cosy glow,
Twinkling lights and firesides, the singing and the snow,
Our hearts all warm and open, with feelings running free,
To welcome everybody,to share in all the glee.

Everyone Loves Christmas,hear the Christmas bells,
Listen to the stories, that grandpa always tells,
And think of those so far away, who can’t be here today,
And welcome all the memories of long gone Christmas days.

Everyone Loves Christmas,the baubles and the tree,
The singing of the carols, the programs on TV,
But more than that, the thing that makes the season so worthwhile,
Is the sight of loved ones all around and sharing in the smiles.

Everyone Loves Christmas, the time for love and care,
Families all come together, gifts they always share,
It’s the time for caring, for letting people see,
That life is so worth living, when there’s joyousness and peace.

Instrumental break
Repeat last verse
......Joyousness and peace.

Maurice Vizard Dec. 2011.

Chris,
the older I get, the more i think I'm turning into one of those old 'fuddy-duddies' LOL, but..... believe me, after no sleep for four nights, Neuralgia isn't better than anything. Anyway don't leave Chris, take your coat off and have another drink..... glad you came along, all the best to you and yours, M

Nice one Mo
esp given your condition, although my sympathies are somewhat less than they might be, as I commented in your last post. Good job on writing something original for the season too. The trademark Moviz sentiment and sound.
Hope you and your family have a warm and wonderful holiday season. Cheers.

Hi Harald
So pleased with your comment and I wish I was going to be sat near a roaring fire, but I'm heading for London for Christmas to stay with my son and his family, so It's a case of under floor heating instead LOL, but I'll make sure it's turned up high, All my best wishes to you and yours, M

nice little tune
Classic Christmas chord sequence - I could imagine Bing crooning over this. Sorry to hear about your flu - I've been down with it too, not much fun! The huskiness adds a certain Father Christmas quality to the song. Very festive! Merry Christmas!

Ahhhh, Bing!
He's the standard we try to reach at this time of year Smokey B, so I'm very pleased if this song brings out connotations associated with his memory.... I very much appreciate the compliments on my vocal too, All the best to you and yours, regards M

Everyone loves...
What can I say Maurice? If I sounded this good when suffering from Flu and Neuralgia I'd be a happy man. I did a recording once with a cold and let's just say it'll never get posted! Brilliant stuff and as for the husky voice.. I kinda like it actually! A classic Christmas feel full of warm wishes and well being. Excellent mix and everything well places. I enjoyed just sitting back and drinking this in. Excellent stuff Mr V!

Yes Char,
I was very determined to get a song out for Christmas as I usually do. This for some reason didn't come as easy as some, but it seems that you and others are getting the right vibes from it, so that makes it all worth while.... thank you so much for calling in to listen and comment, Best wishes to you and yours, M

Delightful work from you here Maurice. Your lyrics and music (both written and performed) is wonderful. This is only my second Christmas at Macjams but I am thoroughly convinced had you written your wonderful Christmas songs many years ago, I'd be singing one with Alan McPike backing me up! You are that good! Thanks again and wishing you and yours a very happy and bright holiday and a new year full of good things to come. Michael

You never disappoint
You manage to catch the mood very well. This could have been very mawkish but somehow it's rather downbeat which works well.

Happy Christmas Maurice :-)

Christmas
I'm convinced that you are from a family of duo-dec-tuplets all named Maurice and you each have a whole year to work on a piece such that you can rotate through publishing one a month of high quality and so very full of heart.

Really Maurice, you make us look like slouches with your talent and productivity. On the other hand, you share all of your lovely work so freely that how can I be a Grinch and complain??

Warmth and connection are all though this piece. Sorry to hear about your cold and maladies, but if you hadn't mentioned them I wouldn't have noticed.

Welcome back to Blighty and I wish you the happiest of Christmases.

Doug

Doug, there is only one of me and people are pleased about that at times LOL.... That comment and praise is a Christmas gift in itself.... so thank you for the lovely compliments..... really pleased you liked this so much. Have a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.......... I'm on the mend now too, so we'll see what I'm like on Tues, when I get back off the train from London with all the coughs and sneezes that abound LOL, regards M

i think i like your chord progressions best about your songs, Mo. Nothing extremely complex or anything, but still appealing. your melodies don't hurt either.

just once i'd like to stand behind you and watch how you fiddle around in Ozone. ha! you use it very well.

Have a great time over this season and into the coming year Sammy.... been great meeting you, regards M
