If you’re already terrified of the festive staple sounds played on a loop during your outings to the boulevard, misery can quickly get worse.
Sir Cliff Richard, 81, has announced that he will be returning to the forefront of music with his first album dedicated to Christmas in almost 20 years.
The record, Christmas With Cliff, compiled an “album of classics” including It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Joy to the World, Jingle Bell Rock and more.
New tracks include First Christmas, Six Days After Christmas (Happy New Year), and Heart of Christmas. The record was released on November 25th and features 13 songs made up of Christmas classics and new celebratory songs.
Richard says he’s loved being in the recording studio since 1958, when he spent time at Abbey Road’s Studio 2, famously used by artists like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Oasis and Adele.
“I recorded this album at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida, 4,427 miles from Abbey Road. Says the singer who has worked with two producers. Walden.
“They took me through some well-known Christmas songs and let me sing them freely and freely. gave me the dynamics I wanted.”
“This album isn’t just for me, it’s for all of us who made it. I hope it adds something special to your Christmas season.”
The release reached Christmas No. 1 on the 1988 singles chart.
Saviour’s Day won the title two years later in 1990, according to the Official Charts Company. In 1960, with his backing band, The Shadows, the song “I Love You” became Christmas number one.
M.It can change over the course of 12 months. Just ask Boris Johnson. Or, in fact, Vladimir Putin. Politics, like rugby union, benefits from assuming little. A year ago yellow and blue Ukrainian flags fluttered in every town in Britain, or Liz He who predicted Truss would be Britain’s next prime minister, they are being quietly escorted out of the building. It must have been.
That’s why the world’s major rugby nations shouldn’t assume anything a year from the 2023 Rugby World Cup. But if the French get hurt unexpectedly or the Parisian monsoon hits, put the chateau on it? Call it the truss effect. If the past two months have shown anything, it’s that rugby has rarely been volatile or predictable.
The top margin is also almost invisible. Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales have all had at least one win against a southern hemisphere nation within the last two months. But how much does it prove?Argentina she just beat New Zealand a week ago and the next week she lost by 50 points. The Wallabies toasted South Africa in Adelaide, but crushed Abbo seven days later in Sydney.
And remember South Africa’s zigzag journey to the 2019 title. In the end, they beat England in Yokohama with a spectacular victory. A year ago, it would have been a different story if there had been a similar team under the same manager. became.
When Siya Kolisi held the Webb Ellis trophy aloft, few people mentioned that small detail. Me, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina have all had their bad days, but the champagne moment in France cannot be ruled out.
why is that? The leaderboard has never been this dense, making it harder than ever for him to win seven on the bounce. Take England, perhaps drawn into the comfort pool, along with Argentina, Japan, Samoa and Chile. Which version of the Puma will come out? The warrior who was very defensive in Christchurch and scored his first test victory in New Zealand? Or is it a little less intimidating?
The simple theory is that if England beat Argentina at Twickenham in November, it will likely do the same at Marseille next September. No argument would convince the passionate Agustin Creevey, former Puma captain who still hopes to qualify for the World Cup when he turns 38. The competition, which will be held in France, will be very different from the autumn internationals in southwest London.
“Playing in the World Cup brings a lot of emotions into your body that you don’t get in a ‘normal’ test match. The team that wins will be the one that has the most control over them. It will be an interesting game.”
Creevy isn’t just saying all this for effect. Having been around the block in both hemispheres, he is genuinely confident that Argentina will be a significantly stronger proposition within a year. say.
“We have a lot to develop, but the young boy we have is great. We are not perfect – Scrum has a lot of work to do – but we are I want to be the best version of us.I’m optimistic.We just need to believe and trust ourselves.”
To be fair, Home Union would have said something similar. Keep Johnny Sexton on the field and after his tour of the great New Zealand Ireland can dream big. Imagine Wales with the best players. Or Scotland turns promises into consistent results. Or England will finally settle on the best, most effective combination: they have him ranked fifth in the world and will need to find some extra gear this fall.
Sitting in Ellis Park last week watching me tackle the All Blacks, Eddie Jones understood the physical and mental intensity required to overtake the two nations that have won the last four World Cups. You will have been reminded of
In that sense, England’s matchup against the All Blacks in November will be a useful barometer of their current status. Not oblivious to Ardi Savea’s continued influence, or the threat of Rieko Ioane’s attack, which seemed deadly against the puma in Hamilton. No-frills, straighter runs, more energy…even the non-vintage New Zealand team looks decent when playing with the ball on the front foot.
However, no one can guarantee that France 2023 will go as well as expected. Old-fashioned luck always does its job. Especially when it comes to keeping key playmakers healthy. No one wants to see France without Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamac. Unfortunately, we have the great Racing 92 center Birimi Bakatawa, who is already likely to be a non-runner.
Top high-profile mods can also be transformative. Joe Schmidt and Michael Cheika are already back on the dancefloor, hoping to get a leg up on their former employers. the only certainty? The 2023 Rugby World Cup will be a competition like no other.
On Tuesday, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced the Proteas squad for next month’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
Lassie van der Dussen was the team’s most notable dropout as he continues to treat a finger injury sustained in the second Test against England. The 33-year-old will undergo surgery and will be out of action for at least six weeks.
The good news for South Africa is that captain Themba Babuma has fully recovered from the elbow injury sustained in the T20I series against India in June and will lead the Proteas for the second consecutive World Cup.

“Someone like Tristan Stubbs, who was out of the frame a year ago, has done incredibly well to push into the mix based on his performance, and his choices have made all the young people out there. We are also happy to see our captain Temba Bavuma return from injury and I have no doubt that his return will further revitalize the team.
“This group of players showed great skill and talent when they beat England recently in England. Performances like this bode well for us heading into the World Cup. We are pleased with the combination and look forward to seeing them represent the Australian nation.”
