Songs To Put Under Your Christmas Tree

Updated on April 13, 2019

Christmas music fans believe its never too early to start planning your gift list for the holiday season. Do you have a relative that is hard to please and who has almost everything? Are you bored with giving out gift cards at Christmas? If so, buying your friends, family, and co-workers some feel-good Christmas songs would be a wonderful way to spread the Christmas cheer. Most people like holiday songs and it is something people can play during Christmas and remember you by. In this hub, I will discuss a few Christmas albums that would make good gifts, or you may just decide that you want to add these sparkling gems to your own collection. Are you looking for a unique Christmas album? If so, check out the wonderful album December by the Moody Blues and I promise you will not regret it. Do you prefer a classic album such as The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole? When I was little I used to think my mom was annoying for listening to Nat King Cole because I thought he was way too old fashioned, but eventually, his beautiful voice won me over and I have been listening to him every Christmas since. Now is the perfect time to consider what Christmas songs might make wonderful gifts for family and friends. Also, buying a Christmas CD to put in a small stocking for each of your co-worker's is a good way to plan ahead for the upcoming season. Do your friends and family eschew CD's and opt for MP3 players? If so, purchase a few digital downloads for your loved ones, which will give them a way to sample these Christmas delights.

December By The Moody Blues

December is the newest and latest album by the Moody Blues that was released in 2003. The album was special because it was the Moody's first Christmas collection with a few new songs written by these wonderful musicians, and a few classics songs with a twist. I have always loved the voices of Justin Hayward and John Lodge, but it is a little sad that Ray Thomas was no longer with the band when this gem was released. However, Norda Mullen is their new guest flute player and is a wonderful musician that is a joy to listen to. I have yet to go to see my beloved Moody Blues in concert, and I hope they will play a few of the songs from their Christmas album when I finally attend. The Moody Blues also created their own version of the John Lennon and Yoko Ono song Happy Xmas, which is always a thought provoking piece. My favorite song on this album is December Snow, which is desert for the ears and a song any Moody Blues's fan can appreciate. If your family and friends enjoy a Rock and Roll Christmas then December might be the perfect gift. I also recommend getting this CD for yourself if you are a Moody Blues fan. CD's not your cup of tea? Go ahead and sample some of the songs from December by downloading them on your computer or MP3 player.

Christmas Song By Nat King Cole

The album The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole is the ulitmate feel good collection. I used to moan and groan when my mom played The Christmas Song and O Little Town of Bethlehem, but then I discovered our fourth grade choir class would be performing some of these songs and I became thankful I had already learned the lyrics. I have come to love Nat King Cole's The Christmas Song because it reminds me of all the wonderful Christmas seasons I spent decorating the tree and singing along with the music in the background. Personally I could sip a cup of hot chocolate or coffee and listen to The Christmas Song many, many times over the holiday season. Nat King Cole had such a beautiful and rich voice that can never be replicated, so this classic collection is worth checking out if you have never heard of it. Thankfully Nat lived in the age when it was possible to record his vocal delights, and I am always humbled to consider how many wonderful musicians from the past we will never be able to hear. When I think of Christmas I always remember the beautiful songs and great time with family and friends. Music makes a wonderful gift because it is something people can share with each other for years to come.
