THE PARTY PLAYLIST

13.11.13

After getting our shoes shuffling at our Gentleman's Evening earlier this season, there was only one DJ who could compile us a party playlist. So, we asked Corrina Greyson to share her favourite festive tunes with us. Corrina Greyson's Christmas Selection - All Christmas Killers, No Stocking Fillers I love music, I love parties, I love Christmas so I was only too happy to oblige when asked to make a special selection for Reiss.

1. Zat You, Santa Claus - Louis Armstrong

It doesn't sound like Christmas till I get some Louis on, so he has the first word with this slinky, Santa swinger.

2. Santa Claus Is Ska-ing To Town - The Granvile Williams Orchestra

You could drop this one at any party, any time of year. Its fun, infectious groove gets everyone moving.

3. Jingle Bells Cha-Cha-Cha - Pearl Bailey

Pearl's sass and sultry vocals teamed with this one's steamy latin groove make it an essential for any yuletide cocktail party.

4. Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto - James Brown

One of J.B's many great festive recordings but a favourite of mine for its message.

5. Hey Santa Claus - The Moonglows

A fantastic rock 'n' roll dancer. I do love a good shuffle.

6. We Wanna See Santa Do The Mambo - Bill Darnel & The Smith Brothers

This cheeky mambo/swing number is my most played Christmas tune. Nuff said.

7. Cool Yule - Louis Armstrong

Another from Satchmo Claus. Swinging, up tempo, uplifting, lovely!

8. All I Want For Christmas Is A Go-Go Girl - Bey Ireland

If this one doesn't get the dance floor rockin', nothing will.

9. Twinkle (Little Christmas Lights) - JD McPherson

The newest recording in my selection. A great groove, soul-drenched vocals and an authentic 50s rock 'n' roll sound. More please, JD!
