What is wonderful about this time of year is all thegreat wintry, timeless, melodic music we don’t usually hear 11 months of the year. However, we know that the same limited selection of songs are played over nad over on the radio and at the mall. If you would like to mix up your holiday playlist at home, we have some wonderful suggestions for you.
Idina Menzel & Michael Bublé – Baby It’s Cold Outside
Menzel of “Frozen” fame and crooner Bublé’s voices are perfectly suited for this classic song. It’s a beautiful rendition and this video is just oozing with cuteness by having children star in this video. Not to worry, the singers make a cameo appearance in their own video.
Elizabeth Chan – “Fa La La”
According to the Los Angeles Times, Chan is a former marketing executive for Conde Nast and Self magazine who left her job to pursue holiday music. She released third album this year we like how that it’s upbeat and happy. You just want to join everyone in the video and start dancing.
Liz Phair, “Ho, Ho, Ho”
If you are tired of the saccharine lyrics of classic Christmas songs, Liz Phair is for you. In her “Ho, ho, ho” she sings: All I wanted was one perfect Christmas / All I got was some coal and some switches / That’s ain’t no sleigh bell jingling on the rooftop / The landlord is here and he’s changing the locks. Still the music is fun and poppy and she has a knack for making Santa’s classic laugh — Ho, ho, ho — sound new and fresh.
Kristen Bell and Straight No Chaser – Text Me Merry Christmas
We wrote about this song a month ago in a blog post. We still think it is a fun holiday song with on-target lyrics about technology in our lives. It’s worth seeing the video again!
