Okay, confession time. I have hardly listened to any Xmas music this year. ‘ducks from the ensuing bombardment of rotten fruit’
But just because I am going through a Grinch-y phase, doesn’t mean that I don’t have my all time favorite Xmas music just like the rest of you merry elves!
And so….let the list begin!
Last, But Not Least –
Favorite Stand Alone Singles.‘The Drifters White Christmas’: I think everyone who has seen my recent posts has already read just how much I loved the Drifters version of this song…and what a blast it was to record it!
‘Carol of the Bells‘ by Celtic Woman: A stirring, enchanting version. I love this song, but for years I could never find a version I liked….until I found this!
‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’: Its a toss up for me which cover I love the most – Mariah Carey’s version or Vince Vance and the Valiants. They are both so different, but both of them are fantastic.
‘What Christmas Means To Me’ by Paul Young: Anybody who has heard this doesn’t need any explanation for why this song is so great. Makes me want to dance every single time.
‘Marshmallow World’ by Dean Martin: Are the lyrics light and silly? Absolutely. Does it have anything to do with the real meaning of Xmas? Eh…no! But its still a fun song and every time I hear it, it makes me think of a child skipping through a powdery snowscape.
I recently recorded a cover of this song and I am looking forward to sharing it with you guys later this month!
What are YOUR favorite Christmas albums, songs and singers? I would love to hear in the comments!
