Holiday music 2020

Yeah, “Wonderful Christmas Time” is an awful song. I don’t agree on “Little Drummer Boy”, however. With the right singer I think it’s a good listen. I do wonder why anyone would think it’s a good idea to play a drum for a newborn infant. That seems like a bleeding idiotic thing to do.

I would like to add that Yoko Ono almost single handedly ruins “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” with her awful singing in the chorus. I listen to the Sarah McLachlan version so I don’t have to hear Yoko.

Absolutely great jazz album. I play this record more than any other music at Holiday time.

Most of my favorite pieces of Christmas Music, are the songs by classical composers that I think of as Catholic Christmas Music, because I became familiar with most of them at church. And while I get tired of some other forms of Christmas music, I never get tired of these.

The first, is a performed by a great guitarist form Las Vegas, who studied among other places at the U, and who is performing this beautiful Schubert piece at the Cathedral of the Madeleine in SLC.

The second is a stunning performance of a great guitar arrangement of one of the most beautiful and ancient Christian songs.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

I’m going to have to watch this one a few more times before I can grasp it.

Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is the worst song of all time. And I apologize for putting that song in anyone’s head.

It’s wonderful to play on piano

Many will like this. Leonard Cohen would not. I like listening to it once a year.

Classic.

We go to the Madeline Choir School performance every Christmas Eve. It’s sublime.

Maybe it’s my family and neighborhood but Donny Hathaway, Kenny and Dolly and obviously this one makes Christmas perfect.


Also, this album from the last decade is fantastic:

You are a horrible person. Someone had to say it.
