It’s cocktail hour at Chez Luscious, and Mr Luscious is in his DJ element, playing all sorts of fabulous songs from our rather large music collection.
One of our favourite tracks at the moment, is appropriately enough, Mary J Blige singing “My Favourite Things”, from one of my all-time favourite movies, The Sound of Music.
Mary has done her own arrangement of it, which appears on her Christmas album, with the rather uninspiring title, A Mary Christmas, although I wouldn’t have classed it as a Christmas song, other than it including a mention of snow.
I grew up in a musical household, and my mother and I used to embrace our inner-Julie-Andrews and sing the music from the musical a lot. Every time I hear it, it makes me a little teary. Ah, the sentimentality of a happy childhood.
Why not take a listen and pour yourself a cocktail too?
