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!
This is the CD we always turn on when we open our presents on Christmas Day. It’s the perfect Xmas ambiance and it never drowns out our conversations or completely overwhelms our video camera’s mic. A wonderful, soft, choice for Christmas dinner or small gatherings.
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!
