Two versions of ‘We Three Kings’. Apologies but I’ve heard it sung too many times so can’t help but think of the follow-on as ‘of orien taaaar’ – rather than as originally conceived. The clips are in order of discovery, and – probably – in reverse order of accessibility.
As usual I have 6 Music to thank for alternative Christmas music. Mary Ann Hobbs played the Patti Smith version twice this Christmas. I’m not sure I actually like it, but it’s certainly interesting, and it grows on me with each listen. Youtube suggests it dates from 1997
It was as a result of finding the above that I came across this 2009 version by Blondie. In this case it was the comments section that directed me towards Blondie, for which I am duly grateful
