Christmas Gift Guide – Play It Loud!


timeThe Time Of My Life – The Greatest Hits Of The Movies

Everyone loves a good movie and they always seem to be the place where we find the most popular songs, just think about that Wet Wet Wet song, you know the one, yes that one, Love Is All Around.  That song was from Four Weddings and a Funeral.  What about Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship?  That was in Mannequin!  How about Happy by Pharrell Williams?  If you don’t know this one, where have you been?  It’s from Despicable Me 2.

It seems many of our much loved tunes are straight out of the movies and this CD has a whopping three discs packed with some of the best!

guitarspatulaGuitar Spatula

It has been many years that the chef inside every rocker has been forced to air guitar, or worse use a wooden spoon whilst rocking out to their favourite song and baking.  No more!  This awful plight has now been thwarted and rockers everywhere who love to cook now have the opportunity to have the correct apparatus to ensure they only have to worry how stupid they look in a pinny.

As spatulas come, this is the rock god of them all, the Hendrix of utensils, if you will.  Shaped like an electric guitar, this spatula can do the job of lesser stirrers and allow you to rock out between bakes! It comes in three metal worthy colours, red, blue and of course black, not to mention it is dishwasher safe too!

So if you know someone who likes to mash and mosh in the kitchen, stuff one of these in their stockings and become a rock hero!  Available from Musicroom for £6.99.

musicalsNOW That’s What I Call Musicals

Musicals are part of Christmas, it is the time of year when all of the fabulous offerings from over the years are put on TV and we sit down with our families and watch, reminiscing.

NOW That’s What I Call Musicals is filled with the hits from the likes of Moulin Rouge, Mary Poppins, Olive, West Side Story, Jersey Boys, Carousel and Starlight Express.  It will have you singing while you cook the dinner, or just because that one song comes on that you can’t help but sing along to, like The Grease Mega-Mix sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, who can resist that?
