F is for...Feliz Navidad and Friends






Moving in to Tuesday (and really wishing it was closer to the always coveted weekend) we're talking all about the letter F today.




F is for "Feliz Navidad" and "Friends in Low Places"

"Feliz Navidad" - Jose Feliciano
 

I don't know what it is about this song, but Christmas is not complete for me until I've hear it about a million times.  It's my second favorite Christmas song (behind Wham's "Last Christmas") and it makes me want to dance and wrap presents.  It should be noted that I LOVE wrapping presents...so this is played a lot!

*Fun Fact:  "Feliz Navidad" is one of the most downloaded and aired Christmas songs in the US and Canada.

"Friends in Low Places" - Garth Brooks
 

You really can't go wrong with classic Garth, and what's more classic than "Friends in Low Places"...especially the live version with the hidden chorus!  This is a go-to at everything from birthdays, to weddings, to gatherings in general.  It is guaranteed to get just about everyone singing along and holding a glass of some beverage in the air while swaying back and forth.  Tell me I'm wrong!  And, really, No Fences is one of Garth's best albums.  Not a bad song.

*Lyrics:  "I guess I was wrong / I just don't belong / But then, I've been there before / And everything's all right / I'll just say goodnight / And I'll show myself to the door / I didn't mean to cause a big scene / Just wait 'til I finish this glass / Then sweet little lady / I'll head back to the bar / And you can kiss my ass"

What are some of your favorite F songs?

Blog on, fellow A-Zers!

    1. It's so good! I almost posted that one, but then thought...nope...should just be Garth...

  2. I am a die hard Garth fan even though I really no longer listen to country. I own every album. No Fences is right up there at the top, though I have a few favorite songs that line up on other albums. As a whole, I agree...No Fences was pretty tops. Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie
