Music to My Ears

(Press play to listen and enjoy.)






Now that the costumes are placed ever so loving in the dress up clothes and the Great Pumpkin has taken the candy, I can finally play my Christmas music!

Really I just love Christmas music. My very favorite Christmas song of all-time is the one you hear, " The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole. I don't know what it is about this song but it manages to give me chills and a warm fuzzy feeling all at the same time. It just pure perfection!

My favorite Christmas album/CD is "White Christmas" by Elvis Presley. Honestly, your Christmas collection is not complete with this one. Every song from the ever popular "Blue Christmas" to the gospel favorite "Peace in the Valley" is just heavenly. And let's face it--no one can sing like The King.

Then of course, I have lots of other must-haves (for me anyway) from  Sinatra's "Old Fashion Christmas" to the more modern Josh Groban and Michael Buble hits. Oh and absolutely every Christmas song from John  Denver--esp. the Muppets "Christmas Together" ones. 

To date I have 4 unique playlists on my iPhone--"Joy to the World"--breakfast playlist; "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"--daytime playlist; "A Christmas Dinner"--dinner playlist; and finally "Oh Holy Night"--relaxing night playlist.  The playlists equal close to 7 hours of music (and that is not all the music I have, trust me). To say I have a lot of Christmas music would be an understatement. Yet, I am always on the search for music I have never heard, music that brings the feeling of Christmas to my soul. So I'd like to know--What is the Christmas song that means Christmas to you?

I hope you enjoy the music on this post today. I hope it helps to lift your spirits and bring some joy in this rather frazzled time we live in. And if the music doesn't warm  your soul...perhaps you'd like some blurred warm coco with hand-made marshmallows we made today :)

I'm so with you on this one!

I even have Charlie Brown Christmas on my iPod to enjoy year round.

The Youngest is just now 2 1/2 so he's really starting to get it all. We were in Target, on Halloween day actually, and he was just mesmerized by all the trees. Can't wait for HIS excitement this year.

I love Christmas as well. This is the start of my favorite time of year! By the way, thanks for the great pumpkin idea. He came by here last night and my 2 boys loved it! All the credit to you!

Is 103.7 Lite FM playing Christmas music yet? They usually start pretty early - must be your favorite station! ; )

I always have to hear the "God Rest Ye Merry Gentelman" by Sarah McLachlan and The Bare Naked Ladies like 80 bajillion times every holiday season...

I have a rule. No Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving! Got to keep it special.

I was thinking of you on 11/01, really, I was! I just read your Great Pumpkin blog (as I never have time to blog on Fridays) and it's a genius idea. LOVE IT.

Hope you enjoy these next two months to the fullest!

Well your Christmas music selection is amazing.

I seriously cannot pick just one song. I like so many for so many reasons and they have such terrific memories attached.

It was 70 degrees here in Ohio today...I can't do this yet. How about if I come back on Saturday when the high will be 41?

I love Christmas as well, but there's no way I can do the music and decorations thing until December 1st! Otherwise it drives me totally batty!

BTW, homemade marshmallows? how cool is that? Were they easy to make?

I love Christmas music too! I can happily listen to it from Halloween until Christmas and never tire of it.
