Perfect Christmas Playlist

Music is a huge part of the holiday season. We all have our favorites: some classic, some silly, some contemporary. I created a Christmas Playlist from my library and a couple of new purchases in my iTunes last week and wanted to share some of my picks for 2008:

  • Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans Siberian Orchestra
  • Joy to the World by Whitney Houston {fabulous version of this classic}
  • Same Old Lang Syne by Dan Fogelberg
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings by Barenaked Ladies & Sarah McLaughlin {if you haven't heard this, find it}
  • Celebrate Me Home by Kenny Loggins
  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by James Taylor
  • Jesus, What a Beautiful Name by Hillsong Australia
  • O Holy Night by Hillsong Australia
  • Babe in the Straw by Mac Powell & Others from the City on a Hill Series
  • Manger Throne by Mac Powell & others from the City on a Hill Series
  • Pachabel's Canon by Georgia Kelly {lovely harp instrumental}

Other Favorites for the perfect Christmas Play List

  • Anything from the Charlie Brown Christmas CD
  • Anything by Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra or Harry Connick, Jr.
  • Sleigh Ride by Ella Fitagerald
  • Baby, It's Cold Outside {my favorite is from the movie, Elf}
