I worked in retail for nearly four years, and in that time I heard the worst of the worst Christmas music that the music industry has to offer. I don't know why the music industry and the retail industry both insist on thrusting whiny, screaming R&B and Soul singers who couldn't carry a tune in a bucket down our throats when we COULD be listening to Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Vince Guaraldi Trio, Celtic Woman, and the many artist out there who DON'T want me to shove needles in my ears and forks in my eyes. Seriously, the Jackson 5 Christmas songs are PAINFUL to listen to.
So let's share some favorite Christmas albums here today. I'll start.
Vince Guaraldi Trio's CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS
The Celtic Woman Christmas album
Chicago's Christmas albums
and pretty much anything by Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.
What are your favorites?
