This post is a companion piece to a post I have published on my other blog, Leaping Life, participating in the Six Degrees of Separation book-link meme.

I love making connections between ideas – some obvious; others unexpected. Creating a playlist for my six degrees book choices allows me to prolong the linking fun! So here goes…

We start with A Christmas Carol. Here is the rousing ‘A Christmas Carol’ from the 1970 film Scrooge:


Next, for Anthony and Cleopatra, we have another soundtrack. This is the sumptuous theme to that fabulous film Shakespeare in Love I must give it another watch sometime:


On we go to Crocodile on the Sandbank. *claps hands with glee*…….


And there is more gleeful handclapping here. For The Riddle of the Sands, a classic track from the 1980s:


The fifth link in the chain is The Red Sparrow. Here is a new-to-me track:


Our next selection, Ballet Shoes, gives me the chance to indulge my love of ballet. We have seen that Christmas favourite, The Nutcracker many times over the years and it never fails to bring a lump to the throat:


Finally, we arrive at the end of this month’s chain with Letters From Father Christmas:


I hope you have enjoyed this playlist. May all your listening throughout the festive season be full of joy and good cheer! 😀🎄
