LAST CHRISTMAS ~ BY WHAM!

"Last Christmas" is a song by British pop duo Wham!, released on Epic Records in 1984, on a double A-side with "Everything She Wants". It was written by George Michael, one half of the duo. The song has been covered by many artists throughout the years. Wham! had been a dominant force in the UK Singles Chart in 1984 and news that they were planning a Christmas single meant that a battle for the coveted Christmas #1 spot in the UK seemed set to be between Wham! and the year's other big act, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, who had achieved a third #1 in early December with "The Power of Love". However, the Band Aid project, helmed by Bob Geldof, produced the #1 single. Wham!'s offering peaked at #2 for much of the period, although George's involvement in Band Aid meant that Wham! still had an input. Wham! subsequently topped the monies raised by Band Aid by donating all of their "Last Christmas/Everything She Wants" royalties to the Ethiopian famine appeal."Last Christmas" did make #1 in various other countries.

"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is a Christmas song with music and lyrics by Tommie Connor.The original recording by Jimmy Boyd reached number one on the Billboard charts in 1952, and on the Cash Box magazine chart at the beginning of the following year. The song was commissioned by Neiman Marcus to promote the store's Christmas card for the year, which featured an original sketch by artist Perry Barlow, who drew for The New Yorker for many decades.Jimmy Boyd's record was condemned by the Roman Catholic Church in Boston when it was released on the grounds it mixed kissing with Christmas. Boyd, age thirteen, was photographed meeting with the Archdiocese to explain the song. After the meeting, the ban was lifted. The song describes a scene where a child creeps down from his bedroom to see his mother kissing "Santa Claus" (presumably his father) underneath the mistletoe.Popular versions of the song were done by the Ronettes and the Jackson 5.

SILVER BELLS ~ BY BING CROSBY AND CAROL RICHARDS

"Silver Bells" is a classic Christmas song, composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans. The lyric is unusual for a Christmas song in that it describes the festival in the city and not a rural setting. "Silver Bells" was first performed by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in the motion picture The Lemon Drop Kid, filmed in July-August 1950 but released in March 1951. The first recorded version was by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards, released in October 1950. After the Crosby and Richards recording became popular, Hope and Maxwell were called back in late 1950 to refilm a more elaborate production of the song

THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY ~ BY HARRY SIMEONE CHORALE

"The Little Drummer Boy" is a popular Christmas song, with words and music by Katherine K. Davis. Henry Onorati and Harry Simeone have been credited with writing the song, even though they were only the arrangers for their recordings of it. The version that made the song popular was the one sung and recorded by the Harry Simeone Chorale. It is also known as the "Carol of the Drum". In 1957 Onorati arranged the song for a recording by the Jack Halloran Singers on Dot Records, but this version was not released in time for Christmas. The following year Simeone re-arranged the song yet again and retitled it for his Chorale's hit single version, which was issued on 20th Fox Records' 45-121 with a 45rpm picture sleeve, then on their LP called Sing We Now of Christmas, which became an enormous bestseller. In 1963 the company, now known as 20th Century Fox Records, retitled and reissued their album. It was now called The Little Drummer Boy: A Christmas Festival, in order to boost sales even higher, as the 45-rpm single had continued to be a seasonal hit.

ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE ~ BY BRENDA LEE

"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" is a Christmas song written by Johnny Marks and recorded by Brenda Lee in 1958 on Decca 9-30776. Although Decca released it in both 1958 and again in 1959, it did not sell well until Lee became a popular star in 1960; that Christmas season, it hit #14 on the Billboard pop chart and turned into a perennial holiday favorite. It continued to sell well during the holiday season, hitting #5 on the Christmas chart as late as 1984. Brenda Lee's recording still receives a great deal of airplay. Despite the song's title, its instrumentation also fits the Country genre which Brenda Lee more fully embraced as her career evolved. For decades, Brenda Lee's recording was the only notable version of the song. Radio stations ranging from Top 40 to Adult Contemporary to Country Music to Oldies to even Adult Standards played this version. The song has been covered by numerous artists, with one of the most successful versions being recorded by Amy Grant, Ronnie Spector with Darlene Love, The Forester Sisters, and a version by Kim Wilde and Mel Smith featuring Pete Thomas.

THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY ~ BY BOB DYLAN

"The Little Drummer Boy" is a popular Christmas song, with words and music by Katherine K. Davis.

The version that made the song popular was the one sung and recorded by the Harry Simeone Chorale. It is also known as the "Carol of the Drum".

Miraculously, the baby, although a newborn, seems to understand and smiles at the boy in gratitude. The popularity of this song is to be seen by the quantity of cover versions of The Little Drummer Boy - a total amount of over 220 versions in 7 languages are known, in all kind of music genres. The song has been performed by classical orchestras, choral groups (both classical and popular), easy-listening stylists, rappers, rock groups and so on.

I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS ~ BY BING CROSBY

"I'll Be Home for Christmas" is a Christmas song, written by Buck Ram, Kim Gannon and Walter Kent. In 1943, this song joined "White Christmas" to become one of America's most popular holiday songs. The recording by Bing Crosby shot to the top ten of the record charts that year and became a holiday musical tradition in the United States. The idea of being home for Christmas originated in World War I when soldiers at first thought that the war would be quick and they would return by Christmastime. This inevitably did not happen, hence the line "if only in my dreams". A song titled "I'll Be Home for Christmas" was first copyrighted on August 24, 1943, by Kent (music) and James "Kim" Gannon (lyrics). The two revised and re-copyrighted their song on September 27, 1943, and it was this version that was made famous by Crosby. The label on Crosby's recording credits "I'll Be Home for Christmas" to Kent, Gannon, and Ram. Later recordings usually credit only Kent and Gannon. The discrepancy arose from the fact that on December 21, 1942 Buck Ram copyrighted a song titled "I'll Be Home for Christmas (Tho' Just in Memory)"—that song bore little or no resemblance, other than its title, to the Crosby recording.

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~ BY JOHN DENVER AND THE MUPPETS

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is an English Christmas carol which enumerates a series of increasingly grandiose gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. The Muppets' 1979 version of the song, accompanied by John Denver, employs the normal lyrics, with the humor coming from the Muppets' unique twist, such as Miss Piggy's continual overplaying of the "Five gold rings" line. The original version, performed on John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together, a holiday television special (5 December 1979), differs from the version on the album of the same name, with a slightly different line-up of Muppets and a running gag of Fozzie Bear forgetting his line several times, eventually being coached by Denver to chime in at the right time.

Years of media speculation of a feud between Carey and Houston led to expectations that a duet would be a great hit and break many chart records, especially as Carey and Houston were successive record-holders for a single with the most weeks at number one. "When You Believe" was a hit, although it didn't make the top ten; rising as high as number 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It fitted a trend of Carey singles at the time, peaking at 38 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay, but at 7 on the Hot 100 Single Sales.

Gardening

Honestly, I am not into gardening becuase i am not a "green thumbed" person and my time is not enough to manage everything. Last year, my auntie went back from Canada and bought us some gardening equipments. According to her, it would be better for us to learn such thing as gardening as it is a perfect hobby that will make us feel so relax and unwind after seeing those wonderful ornamental plants. It is true that having a colorful garden which is filled with different ornamental plants sounds good. It will also establish a great and very relaxing ambiance.
After my Auntie left us and went back to Canada, she leave all those heavy and bulky gardening equipments to us. Honestly, we are having a hard time looking for a place where to store these equipments. The space in our garage is not enough to accommodate them and i guess what we need is a metal garden shed to store everything into one place.
These metal sheds will protect these equipments from rusting and too much exposure into sun. Aside from these, i can also place my mountain bike inside this metal shed to lessen the occupied space in our garage.

In various scenes of the video, Carey is shown avoiding the stalker as well as taking part in a photo shoot. Also in various scenes the video shows the stalker's room with Mariah wallpaper, blankets, dolls, posters, magazines, and countless other Mariah collectibles. As the video comes to an end, she waits for her limousine to arrive at the hotel. However, before she gets inside, she notices the stalker attempting to take a picture of her. She then looks directly into his camera and gives a smile. The video then shows the stalker again, still attempting to take a picture, right before a bus hits him. Carey gasps in shock after witnessing the incident. The video closes with more shots of the photo shoot. The scene where the stalker gets hit by a bus, and the opening line Mariah speaks, are both references to the 2004 film, Mean Girls.

MY ALL ~ BY MARIAH CAREY

"My All" is a song written by American singer Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff for Carey's seventh album, Butterfly (1997). It is built around a Latin guitar, Latin chord, and also makes subtle use of Latin percussion in the first chorus, before taking on a more conventional contemporary R&B-style beat. Its protagonist declares she would give "her all" to have just one more night with her estranged lover. "My All" was mixed by Mick Guzauski. "My All" at the time set a record, giving Carey her thirteenth number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the most by any female recording artist. "My All" ranks among one of Carey's most remixed tracks, and two maxi-singles were released in the U.S. The main R&B remix of this single is the So So Def remix, which features re-recorded vocals by Carey.

THROUGH THE RAIN ~ BY MARIAH CAREY

"Through the Rain" is a pop song performed by singer Mariah Carey. It was composed and written by Carey and Lionel Cole for her ninth studio album Charmbracelet (2002), and it was released as the album's first single in 2002. The song's protagonist is faced with many issues, but she overcomes them to make it "through the rain." "Through the Rain" had been expected to become Carey's comeback single following the failure of her soundtrack album Glitter (2001) and its singles. However, "Through the Rain" only reached #81 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and did not even enter the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay. The failure of the single led to the subsequent weak performance of the album Charmbracelet worldwide. "Through the Rain" was the most successful single carey released to date in the Philippines.

LOVE TAKES TIME ~ BY MARIAH CAREY

"Love Takes Time" is a pop song written by Mariah Carey and Ben Margulies for her debut album entitled Mariah Carey (1990). It was released as the album's second single in the third quarter of 1990. It was the first of several adult contemporary-influenced Carey ballads to be released as a single, and its protagonist laments the loss of a lover and confesses that "love takes time" to heal and that her feelings for her ex-lover remain. It became Carey's second number 1 single in the United States and Canada, but was only a moderate success elsewhere. "Love Takes Time" failed to emulate its U.S. success in any other market except Canada, where it topped the Canadian Singles Chart for one week. "Love Takes Time" reached the top ten in New Zealand. It did not make much of an impact elsewhere, becoming a moderate top twenty hit in Australia, and top forty hit in the UK and the Netherlands, but failed to reach the top forty in Germany.

IF IT'S OVER ~ BY MARIAH CAREY

"If It's Over" is a song written by singer-songwriters Mariah Carey and Carole King for Carey's second album Emotions (1991). King had originally suggested that Carey should cover her song "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", but Carey refused, saying she preferred writing her own material and felt incapable of matching Aretha Franklin. Several months after the release of Emotions, Carey performed the song during her appearance on the television show MTV Unplugged, as the second number on her setlist. he protagonist of this big band-style track gets a case of the blues, and tells her lover that she loves him but that he should stop playing mind games, and "if it's over" he should let her go. The version on MTV Unplugged is an edit as it omits the second verse and chorus. Carey also gave a choir-backed performance of the song at the 1992 Grammy Awards.
