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