My Holiday Jams

I am in full-out holiday spirits right now. I am a present wrapping, cookie making, cookie eating,  under the mistletoe kissing, cider drinking, holiday sweater wearing fiend right now. And these are my jams.

Feliz Navidad

I know some people get sick of this song but I can’t get enough of it! It makes me want to dance and also to learn more Spanish.

Rockin Around The Christmas Tree

I crazy love Brenda Lee. Every time I hear this song I am compelled to bake some yummy sugar cookies while drinking mulled wine.

Christmas Eve In Sarajevo

Such a rocking Christmas song! Also, did you see the lights on that house?? Wicked.

 

What are your holiday jams?

  1. Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole could sing the nutrition label on a cereal box and it would be awesome! I like especially:

    The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) – Nat King Cole
    What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? – Ella Fitzgerald

    Happy Christmas!

  2. “In The Bleak Midwinter” by James Taylor.
    “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLaughlin.
    “I Believe In Father Christmas” by Greg Lake.
    “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” by Sinatra.
    Anything by George Winston.

  3. (whispering) I actually listen to Mariah Carey come christmas. ‘All I want for christmas’. It’s probably because I only hear it one our of twelve months that give me the ability to actually like the song…

    Wham (stopped whispering now) is another cheesy favourite, while for some reason ‘Please come home for christmas’ by Bon Jovi was the first I thought about while reading your post.

    And then there’s the Pogues… we like the Pogues…

  4. Awesome – I feel the same way! I’m obsessed with John Denver and the Muppets – it’s my go-to album this time of year. I also really like this Christmas compilation (from a few years back) called Maybe This Christmas, with people like Barenaked Ladies and Phantom Planet.

  5. Great holiday tune picks!

    I tend to be old school when it comes to Christmas favorites:

    Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting – “Baby it’s Cold Outside”

    Mitch Miller and the Gang -Sing along with Mitch Christmas album which played constantly on my Mom’s giant console record player when i was a kid at Christmas time.

    Andy Williams – The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

    Gene Autry – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

    Anything by Bing Crosby even remotely having to do with Christmas.

    If I miss you later in the week, I hope you have a very merry Christmas, GotC!!

    1. I recently skewered “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” on my blog. “Scary ghost stories”?! What’s with that? Aren’t they thinking of Halloween? The only one I know of is Dickens’ “Christmas Carol,” and Marley was the only ghost who was even remotely scary.
