The Official 2010 Christmas Music Thread

Sure, the turkey has a few weeks before it hits the table, so some may think this thread is a bit premature, but new Christmas albums have been trickling out since October. And I commenced work on my Christmas mix last night, so I'm in the mood.

Feel free to post news of any new Christmas albums, EPs, and singles.

Out now:



The Superions - Destination...Christmas!

I can only take Fred Schneider in small doses, but I have to put this one on the mix this year:

Coming out November 16:



Pink Martini - Joy to the World

I love their non-holiday stuff, so I'm really looking forward to this album.

Target has already put out their annual exclusive compilations and EPs, including Lady Antebellum's A Merry Little Christmas. It includes six songs, but doesn't include their previously released cover of "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Retails for $6.99.

Shelby Lynne also has a Christmas album, though its title escapes my memory at the moment.

I think Susan Boyle's Christmas album came out today! The voice of an angel.

Today Hayes Carll released the studio version of his song "Grateful for Christmas". (That's another one that'll be going on this year's Christmas Mix.)

It's a caged heat Christmas! Sara Groves toured some women's prisons last year and is offering the resulting live album for free:



http://www.saragroves.com/

Coming out Dec. 1: Christabel and the Jons - The Christmas Album



http://christabelmusic.bandcamp.com/

I'm digging the three songs they have up for previewing. Just may be a purchase next month.

Also, last night I bought the studio version of Hayes Carll's "I'm Grateful For Christmas" (which I mentioned above). Good stuff!

Listened to sound samples from the new Wilson Phillips. Terrible.

I recommend the Glee Cast Christmas Album. At least listen to Lea Michele's "O Holy Night" , it's great, and I'm not a "Gleek."

I've heard this is the best Christmas album to be released this year.

It is really good. Unlike the cover art.

Like the music from this year's Target commercials? Target's giving them all away for free:

http://www.target.com/b?node=2492229...l_holidayalbum

---------------------------------------------------

dj bc just released this year's Santastic, a compilation of Christmas-themed mash ups. Get your party started when the Jackson 5 is mixed with CeeLo:

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/y3P5mWswMbA?fs=1&hl=en_US&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/y3P5mWswMbA?fs=1&hl=en_US&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

Thanks for the link to the Target freebie. I can't say for sure, but it seems like there was at least one that had caught my ear. For the price of $0.00, I don't mind to download and find out!

Re: The Official 2010 Christmas Music Thread

You're welcome. I thought the Bishop Allen song was okay when I first heard it (before seeing the ad), but it's grown on me. Now every time I see the commercial, the "you'll never find my Christmas" line totally gets stuck in my head for at least 10 minutes afterward.

I put the Little Isidore song on this year's Christmas mix that I send out. I'd never heard of him before, but I dig that song.

And I also really like the Blackalicious one, too. I just wish the bit rate was higher. 128 kps? Really? But it's free, so I shouldn't complain.

I'm also not a fan of the show but I'm digging their cover of "Last Christmas".
