My Christmas Music List [Dec. 22nd, 2012|11:19 am]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

For the most part, I'm not one to get into the holiday spirit. But I do adore Christmas music, and every year I look for new songs to make a Christmas song playlist. Some of my favorites this year:

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Lady Antebellum from On This Winter's Night
The entire album is apparently very popular, but after listening to the samples of the entire album on amazon I just bought this track. Love it.

Little Drummer Boy by Lincoln Brewster from Joy to the World
I hate this song when sung in the traditional manner, but this rock version made me a believer.

Ding Dong Merrily on High by Celtic Woman from Christmas Celebration
Gorgeous singing with gorgeous fiddle playing. What more can you ask for? I bought the entire album.

Come On, Christmas by Matthew West from The Heart of Christmas
I actually bought the entire album last year for another song (The Heart of Christmas), but I just discovered this song this year. I'm too impatient to spend the time to listen to entire albums sometimes, and I missed out on this song for a whole year. It's so happy you can't help but tap your foot to it.

Leaving Heaven by Matthew West (ft. Vince Gill) from The Heart of Christmas
Another discovery from the same album, this time much more mellow.

This Christmas (Father of the Fatherless) by tobyMac (ft. Nirva Ready) from Christmas in Diverse City
Another disgustingly happy song. So, so addictive.

The Night Before Christmas by Brandon Heath, MP3 only
Very pretty smooth rock/country song. Lovely arrangement (with strings!) and I personally love the singer's voice.

The single album that brought me the most listening enjoyment was the Christmas album by the a cappella group Straight No Chaser, Holiday Spirits. The entire album is really good. My (current) favorites:
Indiana Christmas
The 12 Days of Christmas
Auld Lang Syne
