What's on my MP3 player
for The Holidays?
"It's the most wonderful time of the year...", for music anyway.
The Bay Team
has allowed me to indulge my Holiday music obsession by scheduling a trial in
December! Here are my Top Ten
Holiday recording artists, in (roughly) alphabetical order:
- The Blenders (Nog, When It
Snows, Most Wonderful Time)
- Chicago (Chicago Christmas)
- Harry Connick (Harry for the
Holidays, When My Heart Finds Christmas, What A Night!)
- Gloria Estefan (Christmas
Through Your Eyes)
- Dave Koz (A Smooth Jazz
Christmas, December Makes Me Feel This Way)
- Mannheim Steamroller (any of
their 6 or so albums)
- Bette Midler (Cool Yule)
- Brian Setzer Orchestra
(Boogie Woogie Christmas, Dig That Crazy Christmas)
- Trans-Siberian Orchestra (The
Lost Christmas Eve - it helps if you've seen the live show)
and last, but certainly not least:
- Bob Rivers (Twisted
Christmas, More Twisted Christmas, I Am Santa Claus, Chipmunks Roasting On
An Open Fire, not quite so fond of White Trash Christmas)
Here is a preview of the Holiday Mix I have
planned. You will notice that there are some duplicates, but the styles are so
different that I've decided it's OK. Hopefully, when I Shuffle the Playlist,
they won't come up too close.
