We started the RD2 Christmas music listening yesterday. The general feeling is that, cynics be damned, six days out (five now) is fair game for a little community Christmas spirit-bringing through music.
I, personally, quite enjoy some good holiday music. Notice the word choice: good holiday music. Sappy songs about saving up to buy your poor mother shoes need not apply.
Great Christmas albums I’ve been listening to this season:
- Ray Charles – The Spirit of Christmas
- The Blind Boys of Alabama – Go Tell it on the Mountain
- Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy David Jr. – Christmas With the Rat Pack
- And Raffi Christmas will always remind me of my childhood, though I don’t think I’ll be bringing it to work anytime soon
Recommendations? I have no doubt there are strong opinions out there.
