It’s that time of year again, where I blast Christmas carols and Holiday music on my computer and radio!
My favorite carol of all time is “Still Still Still,” especially from Manheim Steamroller. I also really love the German verse. Pretty much anything Holiday related from Manheim Steamroller is worth buying the entire album.
The highest grossing (and sadly overplayed) song of the holidays is Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” But let’s face it. It’s a good song, upbeat, and really gets people happy and in the mood for Christmas shopping (whether from the coziness of your couch/online or battling the crowds at malls).
About eight or nine years ago, I bought the Christmas Album from 98 degrees (back when they really were the best of all Boy Bands), and I’ll still listen to that thing on a loop in my car. Specifically, “If Every Day Could Be Christmas,” and “The Gift.”
Another awesome one is “Carol of the Bells.” And when put together with a light show like this, how can you possibly not be entertained?
A billion more songs come to mind, but I’d love to hear from you. What’s your favorite carol of the season? How early in the year do you start playing them?
