It drove me a little bit nuts because sometimes Christmas music is cheesy and grating. It's repetitive and if you've ever worked retail during the holidays you know what I mean.
So for years I resisted the Christmas mixes on Pandora, the all Christmas music radio stations and the Starbucks Christmas cds available for purchase along with your latte.
But I've found myself slipping with a few beautiful songs that are so perfect for Christmas but so different from Frosty the Snowman. I could almost listen to them all year round.
Grab a mug of hot chocolate or a cup of coffee and enjoy some of my favorites.
This song is a bittersweet reminder of the darkness that so many face in the midst of winter.
this song gives me chills
love Rachel Yamagata's voice here
She & Him Christmas = perfection
What are your favorite Christmas songs? Do you like the old cheesy standbys or the newer stuff?
