What's Your Favorite....

...Christmas cd?


I've been thinking of getting some new holiday music.

What do you have playing to get you in the spirit of the season?

Funny that the image you show has Loreena McKennitt's "A Winter Garden" CD as that was one of my favorites until this year she released an expanded CD of Christmas songs "A Midwinter's Night Dream" which we listen to often.

I also like Sarah McLauchlan's "Wintersong".

A fantastic instrumental album is Dunne Roman's "Holiday". I dont know if you can get it anywhere but their website.

I do have a soft spot for the classics from the old crooners like Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Some of the compilation CDs of old classics are pretty good (like from Time Life) and can be picked up pretty cheaply.

You'll probably hear all these at our Christmas Party on Saturday.

You should check out the Happy Christmas series...I think there is 4 of them out now, first one released in 98. I think it started as only BEC Label artists (is that label still around?) it's all alt/rock/punk christian bands that are covering christmas songs.
Joy Electric had a real neat electronicacover on the first one that I remember listening to when I was younger.

I wouldn't mind picking up a set of these myself.

Further inspection leads me to answer my question that yes Bec is around & that Jenn's bro works for them. Ha!

When I listened to a lot of bec + tooth & nail stuff they were still pretty small guys with very limited market share, glad to see they're still around & doing well!

But I think they're too big for me to like them anymore...I kid.
