It's something about 'Christmas day in the morning' but it's not I saw three ships

It's a girl singing I think

louvert Thu 23-Dec-10 20:49:41

Do you have any more info? Is it modern? Any idea of the style?

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 20:52:29

Modernish - pop (ish)

Quite christmassy music, quite high

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 20:52:51

Sounds a bit Annie Lennox but I'm not sure it is her

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 21:15:59

Anyone?

CaptainNancy Thu 23-Dec-10 21:20:09

Hayley westenra? She's done some christmassy things...

BigTillyMincepie Thu 23-Dec-10 21:22:03

Isn't Annie Lennox recent album a Christmas songs/ carols reworked one? It could be that?

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 21:22:20

Nope but thanks for the suggestion

I think it was on Radio 2 today

Craig Charles played a Christmas song by her this afternoon - can't remember what it was called but she sang it in a sort of rasping folksy way which grated on me as I like a carol to sound like a carol.

Are we getting warmer?smile

Have a look at Thea Gilmore " That'll be christmas" It's on youtube. Doesn't have the words you were wanting, but I heard it this morn on Ken Bruce and thought it was Annie Lennox-y Worth a look.

Sorry about appalling texting - I'm on the phone in bed and all giddy - "Name That Tune" is my favourite game!

AstridsTardisDisaster Thu 23-Dec-10 21:32:09

KT tunstall was singing on radio this morning on the chris evans show. could it be that?

WhatsWrongWithYou Thu 23-Dec-10 21:32:19

No, cancel that, it was 'God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen.'

Lennox's new one has a few carols on it - but not one with Christmas day in the morning.

louvert Thu 23-Dec-10 21:37:22

Do you know there are playlists for some of the Radio2 programmes? If you could tell us the programme, we might be able to wittle it down from there.

BaroqinAroundTheChristmasTree Thu 23-Dec-10 21:38:51

which of these programmes grin

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 21:39:08

Nope not on Steve Wright or Jeremy Vine

Oh poo maybe I am imagining it

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 21:41:27

I feel so silly

BaroqinAroundTheChristmasTree Thu 23-Dec-10 21:45:05

no no no - tell us more grin

Mayo, Bruce, Evans?

different radio station??

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 21:46:44

Can't be a different radio station - it's not allowed

I wonder if they had a CD on - I'll go & look

louvert Thu 23-Dec-10 21:46:52

Don't give in - we'll find it eventually!

(If only mumsnet had a sound recording facility; you could hum a bit for us!)

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 21:50:11

I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket; I'm a disaster

KatyMac Thu 23-Dec-10 22:01:22

Hmm not on the CDs near to the CD player

Goodness this is annoying

The music was quite, well almost bell like

Lotkinsgonecurly Thu 23-Dec-10 22:08:39

This is the song stings version. There are lots of covers of it. Really nice

three ships

Lotkinsgonecurly Thu 23-Dec-10 22:10:22

I think the version was Annie Lennox and her new Christmas album.
