I love music: Christian contemporary, rock, classical, country, soundtracks, gentle instrumental – you name it. I love listening to music in the background while I work, falling asleep to it at night, getting inspired by it during a workout, twirling and singing to it in the kitchen while I cook, and belting it out on the radio while driving to school. I get especially excited about music at Christmastime. Here I’ve compiled a few of my favorite Christmas songs. It’s by no means exhaustive, but if you’re looking for some fresh Christmas music, perhaps you’ll find a new song or two among these. :) Enjoy!
I like this more contemporary version of Silent Night:
Listen closely to the words of this song. “My First Christmas” makes my dear mom cry almost every time she listens to it. This entire Christmas album, titled An Irrational Season by Carolyn Arends, is absolutely excellent. Try looking it up and listen to the other ones!
This was my very favorite Christmas song as a little girl. A beautiful version of “I Saw Three Ships!”
I just recently discovered this one. I like the unique twist on the words and style:
I love, love, LOVE “Carol of the Bells” and David Foster’s version is one of my favorites:
I love the upbeat style of “Christmas is Coming,” by Jason Gray!
Sorry – I couldn’t resist including this one. Oh my goodness, my mom created a KILLER core workout in sync with this song. Kinda silly, but it has an awesome beat and you can’t help but laugh at some of the lyrics. ;)
And of course I love “It’s About the Cross” by Go Fish, which I posted a couple years ago. What are some of your favorites? I’m always on the lookout for new music and I’d love to hear some of yours!
