I love to listen to Christmas music. It seems to always put me in a happy mood. Really gets me in the Christmas spirit.
I have a pretty good size collection of Christmas CD's. Every year I try to get at least one or two new ones.
This year, my wonderful sister, Patty, picked up two new ones for us while she was out shopping.
One of my favorite singers is Tony Bennett. So I was thrilled when I saw the first CD was Tony Bennett's "A Swingin' Christmas" featuring The Count Basie Big Band.
There is just something about the good old singers from the past singing Christmas songs that I adore. Sure, I like some of the newer singers and the new songs but my heart holds a special place for the traditional songs like, Have Your Self a Merry Little Christmas, Silver Bells, I'll be Home for Christmas and Santa Claus is coming to Town.
So this CD is perfect for me!
Growing up it just wasn't Christmas without Elvis singing in the background. So this CD reminds me of Christmas past.
It's Elvis Presley "Christmas Duets". Through the power of magic Elvis is now singing with the likes of Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Wynonna Judd and several others.
OK, well it's not by magic but by the wonderful technology of today they have remixed and remastered the old versions of Elvis' Christmas songs to make this beautiful CD.
My all time favorite Christmas song is The First Noel. I get a bit misty eyed every time I hear that song. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Be sure to stop by tomorrow as I'm having a GIVEAWAY!
