One of my favorite repeat themes on the old "ialsolovechocolate" blog was Saturday Sing Along Songs.
Typically, I would add one song, per week and accumulate a nice little selection of tunes, by the end of the year. But since we're really close to Christmas (aahhh!!!) and I want to post a collection songs, I'm adding a link to a pre-filled, playlist.
Click here to hear some our family's favorite Christmas songs.
Sadly, playlist.com is missing some KEY songs.
If you like "outside of the box" or unique songs, I strongly, strongly urge you to also give a listen to the following favorites!!
For Seabird fans (Don't you know you're beautiful) -
Seabird- Joy to the World (exactly 1:07 seconds into the song is joy to my ears!) You'll need to buy it to hear it all, as I can't locate it on the internet, anywhere. :( Be warned- this is not your mama's "Joy to the World".
Priscilla Ahn (creator of the song "Dream", that plays on my pro site) gives a beautifully, haunting rendition of Silent Night.
Straight No Chasers (male vocals, tight harmonies, exquisitely executed), Christmas Can Can- (Cman's Favorite)-
Jazz fans, check out Harry Connick Jr's Frosty the Snowman-
I'm still not sure if this is officially a Christmas song or not, but I first heard it on a Christmas disc, so ...? Oh Happy Day, by The Edwin Hawkins Singers-
*Note to my family members- this is a "must have" for my future funeral. In fact, I think having it blasted at the grave site, as the casket is carried to the hole, so people can sway & clap without intimidation, while they walk to the site... yes... that seems appropriate. I'm. not. kidding.*
And the most sweet and sassy version of Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, you'll ever hear comes from Jewel:
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs? And what should we add to our playlist, for next week?!
