three Xmas favs

I'm sappy, you all know it. Christmas songs can be quite sappy, so we get along pretty well. In fact, i love hearing Christmas music, almost all of it. It makes people smile, and sing along, and be just a little less self-aware.

This is one of my favorites, and although i thought it would be right there on my computer waiting for me yet again this year, it wasn't. I went and found it, so you wouldn't have to. Chris Martin is just as sappy as i am, you can tell.

Listen : Chris Martin / Coldplay - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Bonus : Tori Amos - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Speaking of Tori Amos.... my all-time favorite Christmas track would have to be her rendition of Little Drummer Boy. This recording is off of an old German bootleg that I found in a recordstore in LA over ten years ago. It's a little quiet at the start so turn it up.

Listen : Tori Amos - Little Drummer Boy

And then one last one, just in case there's someone out there that doesn't have this song yet. This one was on the first A Very Special Christmas album, which seemed to start a flurry of Xmas CDs for years to come.

Listen : U2 - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)


( song links are only good for 7 days or 25 downloads.
request a repost if you're desperate to listen

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the festive holiday music. It provided the soundtrack for my Christmas at home with the kids.

Merry Christmas,
Simply Susie
