Musical Monday

Ahhh, December, the month when I can listen over and over again to Christmas music!  I love it, don't you??  I found some great new Christmas music this year, so I thought I'd share some of my all-time favorite Christmas songs along with the new ones.

2 of my new favorites have to do with the word "Joy" - shocking, I know! 
"There's Still My Joy" by The Indigo Girls (this song is BEAUTIFUL and makes me cry...every time.  It is so fitting for this particular Christmas.)
"Joy to the World/Unspeakable Joy" by Chris Tomlin (Listen to this one and try not to feel joyful...I dare you!)

Top 10 "Make You Want to Dance Around and Clap Your Hands" Christmas Songs
1.  Feliz Navidad (Jose Feliciano)  Most people think this song is annoying.  I, on the other hand, listen to it over and over and over and it never gets old.

2.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays (NSync)  Yes that's correct.  My #2 favorite Christmas song is by a boy band.  Don't judge me.

3.  My Only Wish This Year (Britney Spears) Ok, now you can judge me.

4.  What Christmas Means to Me (Natalie Grant) The link is the Stevie Wonder version, I couldn't find Natalie's on YouTube but I like her's better!

5.  It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Barlow Girl)

6.  Sleigh Ride (Relient K)

7.  Angels We Have Heard on High (Chris Tomlin)

8.  Jingle Bell Rock (Newsboys) 

9.  We Need a Little Christmas (Glee Cast) I may or may not dance around the house pretending I am in a musical when this song comes on

10.  J-I-N-G-L-E Bells (Frank Sinatra)

Top 10 "Chill Out With Some Hot Chocolate and Sit in Front of the Tree" Christmas Songs
1.  Breath of Heaven (Amy Grant)

2.  Hallelujah Light Has Come (Barlow Girl)  Get about 3 minutes into this song - it's my favorite part!

3.  Winter Snow (Chris Tomlin feat. Audrey Assad) I am LOVING this song!!  It's on repeat right now - it is just beautiful!

4.  O Holy Night (Jim Brickman) His entire Christmas album is really beautiful.  It's great relaxing, chill out music!

5.  Silent Night (Sarah McLachlan)

6.  Glory in the Highest - Christmas Edition (Chris Tomlin)

7.  I Believe (Natalie Grant)

8.  Christmas Song (Tim Reynolds)

9.  A Strange Way to Save the World (4Him)

10.  Christmas Canon (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)

What are some of your favorite Christmas tunes?  Happy singing!! :)
