Music Monday — Favorite Christmas Carols Part 1

It’s December.  Time to pull out the holiday music.  I thought I would share my all-time favorite Christmas carols.  I’ve even pinpointed my favorite versions of my favorite carols.  Part 1 of 3.

“White Christmas” by Bing Crosby — The classic song sung by the classic singer.  While I prefer Holiday Inn over White Christmas, I prefer this song.

“Blue Christmas” by Elvis — Another classic song by a classic singer.  There are many other versions of Blue Christmas, but I always go back to Elvis.

“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings”  by Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan — A fun uptempo mash-up for you.  This is so upbeat I can’t help but feel better after listening.

“The Chanukah Song” by Adam Sandler — A funny song to enjoy.

“Little Drummer Boy” by Jars of Clay — Another classic song done in a more modern version.

Music Monday — Counting Crows “A Long December”

One of my old favorite songs.  I can’t not sing along when this song pops up on my shuffle.  It’s a beautiful song.  Plus you get a beautiful video and a live version to enjoy.

Lyrics (my favorite lines in bold): 

A long December and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can’t remember the last thing that you said as you were leavin’
Now the days go by so fast
And it’s one more day up in the canyons
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven…I wish you would
The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it’s all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl
And it’s one more day up in the canyons
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California…I think you should
Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her
And it’s been a long December and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can’t remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And it’s one more day up in the canyon
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
It’s been so long since I’ve seen the ocean…I guess I should

Music Monday — Third Day “When the Rain Comes”

Here’s an uplifting song for you today.  I hope that every day you feel down there’s some one there to stay with you until the rain passes.  I added an audio track from the album and a live version.

Lyrics (my favorite lines in bold):

When the rain comes it seems that everyone has gone away
When the night falls you wonder if you shouldn’t find someplace
To run and hide
Escape the pain
But hiding’s such a lonely thing to do
I can’t stop the rain
From falling down on you again
I can’t stop the rain
But I will hold you ’til it goes away
When the rain comes
you blame it on the things that
you have done
When the storm fades
you know that rain must fall
on everyone
Rest awhile
it’ll be alright
No one loves you like I do
When the rain comes
I will hold you

Music Monday — Relient K “The One I’m Waiting For”

Any time I’m feeling a bit down, I just pop on Relient K and suddenly I feel tons better.  Their lyrics are complicated and deep, but the music is infectious.  Check them out today.  I give you the audio from the album and a live version from Hard Rock.

Lyrics (my favorite lines in bold):

The way that girl can break a heart
It’s like a work of art
And this is the worst part
She knows it

And she’s so confident
That she’s what everybody wants
But nobody wants
Her to know that

So fall back on all of your premonitions
And just learn to listen
To those that have more wisdom than you
And just stop
Putting so much stock
In all of this stuff
Live your life for those you love

And I’m still waiting for
You to be the one I’m waiting for

The way that girl can turn a head
Well she is such a threat
But don’t ever forget
She knows it

And she’s got it all
All figured out
And she won’t let you doubt
She knows it

I’m still waiting for
You to be the one I’m waiting for

Something tells me that this is going to make sense
Something tells me it’s going to take patience
Something tells me that this will all work out in the end
