Okay, if you have been checking out my post for the last few days, you know by now that I am participating in a link-up called 12 Days of Christmas.
The topic for today is…. bum ba bum!!! Music. It’s the holidays and if you’ve been listening to the radio, surely you have heard a Christmas tune or two. I’ve actually been listening since before Thanksgiving, as one of the local stations started way back then. There are a few that I don’t really care for. Another problem was when I realized that after a week of listening I was hearing the same songs over and over again. Thankfully they keep tossing in a few new ones to keep things fresh.
So, there are two songs I really like. The first is Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song) by Amy Grant. I found an acoustic version by a group called Hip Kitty. I like the sound of the guitar. Most times you hear someone singing this song, you get a lot of symphonic sounds. The guitar sound, for me, is a bit cleaner.
The other song I really enjoy is White Christmas. Not the slow, melodic version, but the do wop version by the Drifters that was in the movie “Home Alone”. I heard a version this year, same style done by Michael Bublé with Shania Twain.
I could easily add a few more, but I’ll keep things short and sweet. Hope you have some great tunes to jam to this Christmas.
