Holiday Season Has Arrived – Music Required #4

Where Are You, Christmas?

Thanksgiving Day officially starts the holiday season in the U.S. It is a day when family get together to eat turkey and take a nap. But there are more to come, and they all deserve some musical cheer. So, no matter which holiday or holidays you observe in the coming weeks, celebrate them with some music.  We should try to keep the spirit of Christmas all year round.

Holiday Music I Love # 3

Mary, did You Know


I am a bit short in holiday spirit this year. Glum about the United States, the world, the environment . . .  I could go on. So, to help my mood I am going to post some of my favorite Christmas and Holiday songs. They won’t be in any special order, just ones I have played and replayed over the years. Some of them might be religious, even though I’m not. But the spirit of giving, celebrating, sharing, and caring (that is Christmas to me) is in all of us, regardless of our faith or lack thereof.  This is the best version I have heard of one of my favorite Christmas songs. The Pentatonix are incredible.

A Cappella, Hallelujah

Pentatonix won the third season of The Sing-Off, a singing competition of a capella groups. They met for the first time the day before auditions for the show. I love this performance of one of my favorite songs, written by Leonard Cohen about 1984. I do find it strange that the song has somehow become a religious anthem for many American christian singers and choirs. I wonder if they have ever listened to the words, which have very earthly and earthy context.
