Festive Finds 2011: Christmas Playlist!

So here it is, the first post in my 'Festive Finds 2011' feature! 

I thought, to get started, I would focus on Chrismas music; it plays a major part in feeling Christmassy and, no matter how old the songs are, they always do the trick. For me, Christmas REALLY starts when you decorate the home and put up the tree (getting myself excited now!), and I think that the best setting for this is with festive tunes playing in the background, which is why I have created my Christmas Playlist!

I was so excited to hear that Michael Buble would be bringing out a Christmas album - I love him! so of course this would feature heavily on the playlist. The album, named 'Christmas', has 15 classic songs and a special yuletide message (ahh!) and these include:
  • 1. It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
  • 2. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
  • 3. Jingle Bells - Feat. The Puppini Sisters
  • 4. White Christmas - Duet With Shania Twain
  • 5. All I Want For Christmas Is You
  • 6. Have A Holly Jolly Christmas
  • 7. Santa Buddy
  • 8. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
  • 9. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
  • 10. Silent Night
  • 11. Blue Christmas
  • 12. Cold December Night
  • 13. I'll Be Home For Christmas
  • 14. Ava Maria
  • 15. Mis Deseos / Feliz Navidad-Duet With Thalia 
  • Plus the Christmas message...
I have yet to listen to 'Christmas' (I'm saving it for the decorating!), although I know I will LOVE it! But of course, there are some more modern songs which I have included in my playlist, just to mix it up a bit...

  • Britney Spears - 'My Only Wish This Year' - it is very 'All I Want for Christmas'-esque, so if you like girly pop, you'll love it too.
  • Mariah Carey - 'All I Want for Christmas' - definitely a classic! Micheal Buble did cover this on his album too so when I get round to listening to it, I will have to see how it compares...
  • Destiny's Child - '8 Days of Christmas' has a great Christmassy feel - even if it is very modern and urban 
  • Danity Kane - 'Home for Christmas' (remember those, Making the Band fans?!)
  • Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews -  'Baby it's Cold Outside' - possibly one of my most favourite Christmas songs... 
  • The Jackson 5 - 'Rocky Robin' - get your dancing shoes on!

However, I loved Blaine and Kurt's rendition of this on Glee, so a number of the cast's festive tunes from Glee: The Music: The Christmas Album Volumes One and Two are on my playlist also, including:
  • 'The Most Wonderful Day of the Year
  • 'Last Christmas' (although you can't beat a bit of Wham!) 
  • 'Christmas Wrapping
  • 'Do They Know It's Christmas'
  • 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town'
I am sure that there are many more which I will remember and add to the playlist over the next few weeks, but for now, these are my festive favourites! If you have any more suggestions, then please let me know - let the countdown to Christmas begin!
