‘Sarah’s voice brings out the sense of wonder in the song and sprinkles the irrepressible hook with a lilting boost, that leaves the listener with an endorphin boost the size of the Rockefeller Centre Christmas tree’

Sarah McGuinness ‘Christmas Every Day’ the video:
Over the past year, radio host and singer/songwriter, Sarah McGuinness has snowballed critical acclaim and public accolades for her unique ability to mirror and express the mood of the nation through film, song and radio. Her regular shows on 242 Radio, have endeared listeners with their alternative, humorous approach to our everyday lives. Now, McGuinness fuses that same empathetic mood with festive joy, and a decent dollop of humour, as she re-releases her Christmas classic, ‘Christmas Everyday (No More Sad Songs)’ – released on 2 December.
‘Christmas Everyday (No More Sad Songs)’ is the epitome of the ultimate Christmas pop track – timeless and touching with a generous dose of addictive festive cheer that defies you not to sing this over and over. An Emmy nominated film director for her documentary ‘Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story’, Sarah combines her joy of film with this Christmas track, to bring a reminiscent jaunt through the Christmas ages. Produced and directed by David Baksh, the video is a cracker full of festive fun as we’re traversed through pop Christmases-past, as Sarah pays homage to the likes of Slade, John Lennon & Yoko, Boney M and Wizard on her festive disco dance-floor. A cheeky tip-of-the-hat to those music masters who’ve delivered our melodic pop joy across the decades.
‘Christmas Everyday (No More Sad Songs)’ is a slice of pure melodic pleasure for Christmas. Cascading jingle bells wrap and weave their way around Sarah McGuinness’ distinctive vocals, as she casts her spell of blissful happiness over that one important day of the year. Hang up your troubles and worries, just for one day, and open your hearts to laughter and Christmas cheer.
‘Ms McGuinness raises a visual glass of festive cheer via a cheeky little video which sees her romp through iconic chorus moments from all your favourite Christmas songs. Now that really is a cause for no more sad songs and only happy sing-alongs!’ – Paul Reynolds, My Fizzy Pop
