Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas Wire to the Ear readers! I hope you give and get toys that make loud noise today. The photo above is my kitten Tiffany in my pink plastic tree I found in Berlin. She managed to knock it over and swat all the ornaments all over the house. Feliz Navidad by José Feliciano is my all time favorite Christmas song.

“”Feliz Navidad” is a Christmas song written in 1970 by the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter José Feliciano. With its simple Spanish chorus (the traditional Christmas/New Year greeting, “Feliz Navidad, próspero año y felicidad” or “Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year” and equally simple English verse “I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart”, it has become a classic Christmas pop song in the United States, Canada and throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Feliciano’s version of “Feliz Navidad” (in which he plays both an acoustic guitar and a Puerto Rican cuatro) is one of the most downloaded and aired Christmas songs in the United States and Canada. The addition of the horns as a final touch was the idea of producer Rick Jarrard. It was also recognized by ASCAP as one of the top 25 most played and recorded Christmas songs around the world. “Feliz Navidad” has been covered by many other artists including Celine Dion, David Hasselhoff, Moby (on their album Moby Presents: Alien Sex Party), El Vez, Jon Secada, Fenix TX, Home Grown, the ska-punk band Voodoo Glow Skulls, and The Wiggles, with the best known version in the UK and Europe being the cover by the disco group Boney M on their Christmas Album released in 1981.” – Wikipedia
