Merry Christmas all! We got you some presents! Here are a few of my fave classic Christmas songs that you either don’t hear 50 million times every year (or that I could stand hearing 50 million more) and one new song. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you love them. Check ‘em out, load them on your ipod and hit the road to holidayland.
The first gift keeps on giving after Christmas. It’s not really a Christmas song, but one I absolutely love by someone I absolutely love. It comes with a confession; the songbird here is Lia Rose, one of my dearest friends, but also owner of one of my favorite voices. Really- like if I could only have 5 singers to listen to while trapped on a deserted island favorite. Former member of the band Minipop, founder of Built for the Sea, and now with Or, the Whale, Lia’s also just a short while (January, 2011) from releasing her debut solo album When You Need Me Most. I’ve heard it. It’s beautiful- and it’s packaged with non-toxic, environmentally-friendly materials. Lia recorded a holiday tune with her former band:
Baby It’s Cold Outside (Cover) by Built for the Sea from the album A Foggy Holiday Volume 2
6 More Fave Classic Christmas tunes:
Father Christmas by The Kinks

Blue Christmas by Elvis Presley (we don’t really need his last name, do we?)
The Little Drummer Boy / Peace on Earth by Bing Crosby and David Bowie
Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon & Yoko Ono with The Harlem Community Choir
