Christmas Music: Last Round

A complete mash up here of stuff that didn’t fit elsewhere or got left out. After honeymooning in Hawaii, I **HAVE** to start with:

Mele Kalikimaka – Bing Crosby

And living down South now, there’s this:

Christmas in Dixie – Alabama

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Pentatonix

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Andy Williams

Frosty the Snowman – The Beach Boys

There’s enough good Christmas music out there that I could do this all day, BUT we’ve all got food, family and gifts to deal with, so that will have to do. 🙂

Christmas Music: Rocking It

We will pick things up a little to start out our Christmas Day music list. Something to wake you up and get you going so that big dinner is actually ready on time, or you’re out the door to go to that big family dinner on time.

Lincoln Brewster: The Little Drummer Boy

This was, I believe, the 2015 Christmas Eve service at Bayside Church in Granite Bay. On top of Lincoln’s musical career, he’s a music director and pastor there.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra – Christmas Eve / Sarajevo (Timeless Version)

A piece if music that speaks for itself. I’ve been to 4 or 5 TSO Christmas concerts and they never disappoint.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra – Carol of the Bells 2018

This was actually the last TSO concert series I attended, back in Sacramento. Fabulous show.

Lincoln Brewster – Hark the Herald Angels Sing:

AND… *IF* you’re feeling brave… I give you Twisted Sister’s version of Oh Come All Ye Faithful. You won’t be hearing things either… “We’re Not Gonna Take It” uses an up tempo melody line from “Come All Ye Faithful”

Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Christmas Music: The Fun Stuff

I’m putting Friday Night 80s on a brief hold for some Christmas music. I’d intended to do a longer series of these posts like some other blogs have, but the whole spider drama kept me sidetracked. I’ll make a handful of these posts today and tomorrow in between all the cooking / prep and cleaning I have to do. 🙂

So we’re going to start with the silly and fun stuff first. We’ll get to classics and religious Christmas songs a little later.

We start with one that only the SoCal beach hot rodder culture could have come up with:

This secret now revealed; I’m a huge Beach Boys fan 🙂

And no list of this type would be complete without the infamous Mr Grinch song:

Nobody does it better than the original

Next stop; The Muppet Christmas Carol. There are several good songs to choose here. I was tempted to pick the Scrooge song from the beginning, but I want to keep things positive and upbeat, so…

And last for this post, we’re going to pay Snoopy a visit. This is another one you Millennial kids probably never have heard. 🙂
