Holiday Music

 

My favorite Christmas song is probably O Holy Night. It’s beautiful, serene, and angelic.  But you can’t have 20 versions of O Holy Night looped on a playlist for every dinner party and gathering.  This holiday I became obsessed with the perfect playlist.  It’s easy to hear the classics, the traditional songs on the radio.  What I was looking for was the unique, the remake or remix that captures the feeling of the season for me.  This list is a compilation that I’ve been working on for a few years.  There are some obvious choices but some I hope you’ll find to be a pleasant surprise.  Please leave me some of your favorites below in the comment section!

Happy holidays!!

    Unfortunately, I can’t get the playlist to work. I was really looking forward to it! And my favorite Christmas song (or one of them) that you are missing is Smashing Pumpkins, Christmas Time! Thanks for posting songs I didn’t know about.

  4. I tend not to leave a response, however I looked at a few of the remarks on Holiday Music | Sue Tran. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it just me or do some of these remarks appear
    like thhey are left by brain dead people? :-P
