Merry & Bright Playlist



Now that the Holidays are in full swing (we got our first dusting of snow today!) Christmas tunes are basically on non-stop around here…much to Jack’s dismay.  He has lots of opinions about which songs I’m allowed to play and/or sing.  Poor thing is only four and he has a whole life of torture (via my singing) in front of him.

I put together a little playlist of some that I’m loving right now and torturing my family with.  This one is more indie leaning (maybe I’ll do one with my favorite pop/classic songs as well?!).  Enjoy!

White Winter Hymnal – Pentatonix

Let it Snow – Colin & Caroline

Up On The House Top – Zach Gill

Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Colin & Caroline

Silent Night – Zach Gill

Only at Christmas Time – Sufjan Stevens

I’ll Be Home for Christmas/The Christmas Song – Colin & Caroline

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Daniela Andrade

This Time Next Year – Colin & Caroline

Holiday Tunes

Now that Thanksgiving is officially over…I can finally listen to my Christmas music without getting this weird look from Lance. At my house (growing up) Christmas music was kind of a big deal…I mean my mom has a massive collection…so I pretty much know every Christmas song that comes on the radio ( ya know, that one station in every town that plays ONLY Christmas music after Nov 1st).

I thought I’d share two of MY favorite Christmas albums right now…in case you are in need of some new Holiday tunage.

Sufjan Stevens – Songs for Christmas

well I pretty much love everything Sufjan has out there…so when I found out he had a Christmas album…you better believe I snatched it up (oh and I’ve already listened to the entire box set…twice…since Thursday).

Here is one of my favorite songs from it

Mindy Smith – My Holiday

This album is much more mellow…she has such a beautiful voice and I just love listening to this entire album from start to finish.

Here is the title track (skip ahead to 43 seconds to get to the song)

There’s also some new albums out this year I think I’m gonna check out…I just can’t decide which one(s) to get yet!
