Christmas Music

Brian and I have created a pretty impressive Christmas music collection over the years.  We have classics like Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby and I’d even put Harry Connick Jr in that category.

More modern favorites are Bare-naked Ladies (that one rocks) and Sarah Mclachlan (beautiful).  My absolute favorite is their combo song, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. I listen to that one over and over and over.

This year I added some indie chick songs with the Hotel Cafe collection. It features Lenka, Sara Bareilles, Colbie Cailat, K.T. Tunstall, etc.  It has a few duds (Katy Perry and Fiona Apple) but overall it’s given me some fresh tunes.

And, I just downloaded the Last Christmas song by the Glee cast.  That song puts me back into the pre-teens when Wham! released it.  I can still clearly imagine the video that MTV ran over, and over, and over.  The Glee cast nailed it and took it up a notch. Sorry George Michael 🙂

Oh, and Brian got the Heat Miser song remade by the Big Bad Voodoo Daddies. It’s great. Don’t even tell me you don’t remember that song from the animated classic The Year without a Santa Claus. That’s by far my favorite of all those old movies.

What are your favorites? I’d hate to be missing any gems out there!
