Music for Christmas and Advent - Riu, Riu, Chiu

MUSIC FOR CHRISTMAS AND ADVENT

Riu, Riu, Chiu

 

 

When looking for Christmas music this morning I was surprised to find this old Spanish Christmas Carol (or Villancico), sung by the Monkees on their 1967 television Christmas special.  In 1967 I was in love with Davy Jones and I'm sure I must have watched this but I don't remember it. 

 

The men's vocal ensemble, Chanticleer, sings an incredible version of this which is a favorite of mine, but interestingly the Monkees got more hits on YouTube.

Hi Ann,

So, you remember The Monkees too?? They were also favorites of mine although I don't recall this particular song.

Have a wonderful Christmas and good luck for 2011.

Steve, I loved the Monkees, but Davy Jones most of all!  He was my first crush.

Ann, I'm guilty too of being a Monkees fan!  But this is one I hadn't heard either.  It's lovely!

Merriest of Christmas wishes from our home to yours!

Thanks Ellen, I'm glad you enjoy them.  It's fun looking around for stuff that you don't hear over and over on the radio.

Debi, he's mine all mine!

Pam, now I need to go find some more familiar Monkees music on YouTube.

Hi Ann!  YES, love this song but, don't remember them singing it at all.  Could be I was too busy looking dreamy-eyed at Davy Jones too!  LOL

Ann, this is a new one for me and I liked the Monkey's...come on...you're too young to be a Monkey's fan! You must have been two years old when you had a crush on DJ.
