As we approach Christmas, I thought I would give you, my dear readers, a taste of what Ilikes to listen to on MY iPod when it comes to Christmas music. I’ll break it up into parts for simplicity. Today, we examine what I call “The Classics.” Tomorrow, we will examine more modern examples and reinventions of some timeless classics.
When you start a music compilation of classic Christmas music, the list should begin and end with Nat King Cole.
Nat King Cole – The Christmas Song:
Gene Autry: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Bing Crosby – Mele Kalikimaka
Given to you in its finest form: From “Christmas Vacation.” (WARNING: THERE IS ALMOST SOME NUDITY….DAMN IT)
Bobby Helms – Jingle Bell Rock
Brenda Lee: Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Dean Martin – Silver Bells
The Chipmunks – Christmas Don’t Be Late
Frank Sinatra – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Nat King Cole – O’ Holy Night
