The holiday cd's are pulled out the day after Thanksgiving, We have amassed quite a collection over the years, and I ADORE Christmas music. The traditional: Nat King Cole singing "The Christmas Song", the funky: The Waitresses "Christmas Wrapping", to the less listened to "Hurry Home for Christmas" by Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme.
Deano gets put in regular rotation, along with the soundtrack from a Charlie Brown Christmas, and Ella and Louis combining for a rousing rendition of "Zat You, Santa Claus?"
I own not one, but THREE Harry Connick Jr. holiday cd's. I love that man.
I adore my James Taylor holiday cd, picked up as a Hallmark special several years ago. In recent years I have added Diana Krall and Mary Chapin Carpenter to my holiday collection.
And best of all, Mike's brother Bob (a MAJOR music aficianado) makes us a fun holiday collection nearly every year.
This year's addition? Last night I downloaded all of the fun holiday songs Target has in their commercials this year. And being the hip retailer that they are, of course they are offering all of them as free downloads, you can get it for yourself here: http://www.target.com/gp/browse.html/ref=sc_iw_2_0_Music/?node=2492229011
Yes, I used to work for Target, but that is not why I shamelessly promote them. I just love the way they do business.
What is your favorite holiday soundtrack?
