‘Tis the Season

The Christmas season is upon us.  Actually, it’s been skulking in since August, but I refuse to acknowledge it until there is no other choice.  My sentiments for the holiday aside, I LOVE good Christmas music.  Good, as defined by me, includes interesting arrangements, non-traditional artists (for Christmas music, that is), artists from my generation, collaborations (i.e. Bing Crosby & David Bowie), new songs, a general lack of cheesiness (although Christmas songs, in general…well…).  Here are a few albums that fit the bill for me.

Highlights:
Gabriel’s Message by Sting
I Wish Every Day Could Be Like Christmas by Jon Bon Jovi
Highlights:
Christmas All Over Again by Tom Petty
Christmas Time Again by Extreme
Highlights:
I Saw Three Ships by Sting
Christmastime by Smashing Pumpkins
Children Go Where I Send Thee by Natalie Merchant
The Christmas Song by Hootie & the Blowfish
Christmas Song by Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds
Highlights:

Merry Christmas Baby by Sheryl Crow & Eric Clapton
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Jon Bon Jovi
Highlights:

Tune in tomorrow for more selections.  I’m looking forward to some fabulous listening this Christmas season!

  1. I have the first several A Very Special Christmas CD's…Greg hates them, specifically he hates Madonna's Santa Baby but I'm with you on your choices of songs!
