War Is Over (If You Want It)

I’ve given my weekly Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast quite a bit of thought recently. It’s Christmas time again and this normally provides me with the luxury of having some more time to myself to think about where things are and where I’d really like them to be.

Il-Milied u s-Sena t-Tajba!

Il-Milied u s-Sena t-Tajba!

Two rather significant developments occurred during 2016 for the MMI podcast. The first of these was the introduction of a regular video edition of the show featuring official music videos for the tracks I select for each podcast, whenever they’re available. The video edition is now also broadcast on MVTV, the new IPTV channel featuring music videos from Malta. The other development is the decision to move the annual MMI Listeners’ Picks Poll to January. This enables me to overcome the perennial discomfort of leaving out nominations from releases that come about after the autumn cut off date.

The podcast has been around for 11 years now. I have randomly produced a Christmas edition for a number of years during this time. This is not one of those years. I am therefore providing you with three things instead:

1. A list of links to the Christmas edition of the MMI podcast from previous years.

2007 was the first year the MMI podcast featured any Christmas songs, along with the regular playlist. [ read more… ]

2. A link to all the Christmas songs and music from Malta I know about through the M3P wiki.

3. A small number of 2016 festive releases that would have made it to the 2016 Christmas edition of the MMI podcast if I had decided to produce one.

Opening with Kevin Borg singing Silent Night in Maltese, Swedish, and English.

Next is Footprints with Festa ta’ Kuluri.

Following up with Chris & Moira‘s Christmas song for you.

And closing up with another Christmas corker from the indomitable Clinton Paul.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays…and don’t let anyone or anything grind you down.
