Subject: RE: best christmas songs for retirement home
Why don't you print up some lists of what you can do and let the people tell you what they would like to hear?
Here's something i've been wondering about. Those commercial songs, such as White Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Silver Bells - why do people sing them so slowly and solemnly? The way they are heard on the radio, you could sing them at a funeral, no questions asked.
Do them again, and smile when you sing them. Pep them up a little. They're supposed to be happy. I think it will tickle the residents to hear something old done in a new way.
