Holiday Musical Roundup

Wednesday, 4 December 2013 | Tags: , , , , , ,

Can I help get you in the mood? The holiday mood, that is! Crack open the eggnog, cozy up by the gas fireplace and let this song list rip. Here are a few of my favourite holiday tunes.

Just for Now – Wrapped in Red, Kelly Clarkson

This is an Imogen Heap cover and it’s one of my favourites on Clarkson’s new Christmas album. I also like her original tune, Wrapped in Red. 


Available at amazon.ca

River – Wintersong, Sarah McLachlan

My all time favourite Christmas song.  And McLachlan’s version is haunting.


Available at amazon.ca and itunes

Christmas in Heaven – A Christmas with Scott McCreery, Scott McCreery

I’m getting more and more intro country music (thanks “Nashville.”) McCreery’s voice is so rich.


Available at amazon.com

Something About December – A Very Merry Perri Christmas, Christina Perri

Perri reminds me of Karen Carpenter, lovely voice and beautiful song. 


Available at amazon.ca

Blue Christmas – A Very She and Him Christmas – She and Him

Damn that Zoe Deschanel. She can act, sing and she’s adorable.  Blue Christmas really showcases her vocal ability, with all it’s imperfections.


 Available at amazon.ca

White Christmas – Bing Crosby

My favourite classic. Don’t mess with it.


 Available at amazon.ca

Hanukkah oh Hanukkah – Barenaked for the Holidays, Barenaked Ladies

I’m a sucker for anything in a minor key. This will make you want to get up and dance the hora.


Available at amazon.ca 

Home – It’s Time, Michael Buble

Not a traditional holiday song but it should be.  This one always gives me shivers


 Available at amazon.ca

Christmas is All Round – Love Actually, Billy Mack

Love Actually is one of my favourite holiday themed movies and Bill Nighy steals the show. 


Available on amazon.ca

Got a few more to add to the list? I love a unique take on an old classic or even better, an original work.
