Christmas Music – My Favorites

22 Dec

Um, first off, can you believe it’s only 3 days ’til Christmas? What?? Anyway, moving on…

I’ve been listening to a lot of Christmas music lately, of course. I mean there’s only one month a year that’s it’s allowed. Gotta maximize that time. So I figured I’d share some of my favorites (new and old).

My favorite new Christmas album this year is definitely Christmas by Michael Buble.

Christmas by Michael Buble

Michael Buble just has the best voice ever. He kills it on the traditional Christmas songs, while still making them a little more fresh and current. Love him. I also watched some of his Christmas special on TV the other night, and he’s just as amazing “live.” Makes me swoon really. (Side note – Justin Bieber tried to ruin Christmas on that TV special. Luckily Michael prevented it, just by being awesome. But seriously, the word “shorty” does not belong in a Christmas song, multiple times, sung by a baby-faced white boy who needs to pull his pants up. *Steps down off of soapbox.*)

Another new favorite:

A Very She & Him Christmas

A Very She & Him Christmas by She & Him (aka Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward). Love love love this album. Another great current take on the classics, and I just love Zooey and anything she does.

Of course, my all time favorite Christmas song is still All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey

Best. Christmas. Song. Ever. And I’ll probably never change my mind on that. That song has also been my ringtone since the day after Thanksgiving.

However, I was pretty surprised this year to hear two new versions of this song and not actually hate them. In fact, I kind of love both of them. I guess I just love that song so much, no one can ruin it.

Dave Barnes – All I Want For Christmas Is You

Good work guys. 🙂  Dave Barnes’ Christmas album – Very Merry Christmas– is also really good.

Anyway, those are my faves this year. What about you? All time favorite? New current fave? Hate Christmas music? Well bah humbug!

Psst – if you’d like to buy any of the albums I mentioned, check out the Amazon links below. Full disclosure, they’re affiliate links. 🙂
