There is nothing like Christmas music to put you in a festive mood, right? While I do not break the cardinal sin of playing Christmas music before the turkey is done, I do listen to it throughout the month of December. Thought I would share a couple of this year’s favorites…
First up, Drummer Boy by Jars of Clay. Have to be honest. Don’t usually jam to Christian rock, but this version of the song is lovely. May be my top pick for the year.
How about God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen / We Three Kings (With Sarah Mc Lachlan) by the Barenaked Ladies? Love this one. Always puts me in a good mood. And the addition of Sarah McLachlan? Genius.
Song number three, I Believe in Father Christmas by U2, is a real no-brainer for me. I love anything U2.
Another favorite band? Coldplay. Can’t pass up their version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Last Christmas by Wham! Wow. You either hate this song or you love it. I love it. And, I can hardly believe the number of little teeny boppers who’ve covered it recently. Don’t like the song? Maybe you’ll watch the video just for the hair. Seriously.
Nothing overly amazing with just the song, but oh my gosh, he is totally playing it on water glasses! We’ve watched this one a dozen times
Hmmm. Dave Barnes is a new artist for me. Still trying to decide how much I like him, but I do like Christmas Tonight.
Colbie Caillat’s voice is so soothing to me. Like this version of the song Mistletoe.
This one. Ahh. How can you not like a band called Guster? Just sounds fun. And the song? Donde Esta Santa Claus? It’s a classic. On Poncho….Give it a try!
Last, but not least, a holiday classic – White Christmas by Frank Sinatra.
Noticeably left off??? Mariah Carey. Can’t stand her. The Chipmunks? Just heard it playing today. No thanks.
So, what are your favorite Christmas songs? I would love to add a couple new ones to my list…
