It’s the most wonderful time of the year with the kids jingle belling, and everyone telling you “Be of good cheer!” Chestnuts are roasting on an open fire, mommy’s kissing Santa Claus and we’re all dreaming of a white Christmas.
We’re launching two of our most beloved Holiday music channels today at noon ET–and there’s more where those came from throughout the season. Holly, Ch. 17, and Holiday Traditions, Sirius Ch. 147 / XM Ch. 73, are bringing you both contemporary holiday songs in addition to your most beloved classics. Below is just a taste of what you’ll hear, so tune in to get yourself in the holiday spirit!
Holly’s Top Contemporary Picks
1. All I Want for Christmas Is You – Leave it to Mariah to do a Christmas song that rivals the classics.
2. Santa Claus Is Coming to Town – The Boss does Christmas like… a boss.
3. Christmas Canon – It’s a little bit classical, it’s a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and it’s all Christmas.
A Taste of Holiday Traditions’ Classics
1. White Christmas – Bing Crosby, the best-selling single of all time according to Guinness, crosses all generations. It will never go out of style.
2. The Lord’s Prayer – Perry Como gives me chills and chokes me up a little with this song. It’s so beautifully done and it reminds us of what it’s really all about.
3. Happy Holiday – Peggy Lee has a funky bass line that reminds me of Disney theme park music of the ‘60s.
