There are hardly as many cover versions and renditions as of Christmas music. Any singer who has some sort of name has their own Christmas album - some better than others, and it is an absolutely impossible undertaking to listen to all of them. Of course, there are the classic renditions of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, but also the pop ones, and, of course, folk songs, which are my personal favourite.
Christmas music is the most wonderful music for me, as it is happy, joyous and often has beautiful lyrics, so I really allow to listen to Christmas music only between 1st November and December 31st, to fill the most time up with the music I love. Each year, I compile a new Christmas song list, which does not have to include only the latest released songs, but songs I find on my lengthy searches for the best Christmas music. I have written extensively on Christmas music last year, too, and shared my favourite albums and you can re-read on it here.
But now I want to share some songs I have encountered in the past weeks which I really liked and included in my annual compilation - from very well-known to hidden gems. You can also follow my playlist on Amazon Music by clicking on this link.
Remember my short story "I Love You, Nikita" which was published on the Mused website? Now it is finally available in print and you can purchase a copy via Lulu.com. There is also a non-fiction piece of mine in there called The Yellow Shoes, which recounts how I met my future husband. They also have many other wonderful editions and their artwork is fantastic! Check it out and probably even get a copy for you or someone if you're still short on a Christmas present...
