I love Christmas music. Well, most of it. Some of it(the more recent stuff) is horrid. The pop divas and pop boy bands and pop icons….they should stay away from sacred Christmas.
But I have favourites and some are in fact recent recordings. Here’s some MUST listen tos for Christmas in our house:
Amy Grant’s Tennessee Christmas.
I just CANNOT begin the season without this. Very often, November 1. It just warms me from the inside out and helps me to calm down, focus and be joyful.
How fun is it when Dolly sings “Christmas Time’s A Comin’ ” ? The best!
But even better is Hard Rock Candy Christmas….chokes me up every time.
Elvis’ Christmas Album
I particularly love “It Won’t Be Christmas Without You”….so tender…..
No Christmas is complete without this rendition of Mary’s Boy Child
Burl Ives: My mom still has this record. There is nothing quite like Burl Ives(who I always thought was Santa) singing Rudolph or Have a Holly Jolly Christmas.
Willie Nelson’s Pretty Paper: Makes me cry every time- such a beautiful song.
Bing Crosby: Classic. No one sings White Christmas or Silver Bells like he does.
And now for some new favourites which I can’t get enough of:
Michael Buble’s Christmas album:
I could go on and on and on….I love Christmas music. Honorable mention to
Faith Hill’s – A Baby Changes Everything
The Judds- Beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Selah- Light of the Stable
The Forrester Sisters- Little Toy Trains
Merle Haggard- A Country Christmas
Okay….stopping…..now you….what is your favourite Christmas song/album?
