Playlist Thursday – My Holiday Picks
I’ve waited long enough!!
Although I’ve previously mentioned my holiday love on this website, I’ve never been a start-carols-on-December-first kinda gal until this year. Maybe it’s because it’s my first Christmas with my husband, or perhaps because we get to spend the holidays with both of our families. Maybe it’s because last Christmas was so sh*t… either way, our tree was up for the first weekend of December and I have been waiting (highly impatiently) to share my Christmas playlist with all of you.
Now. I have a deep and abiding love for Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole but you already know those songs so well. I’ve decided to spice this Christmas playlist up a little. God bless the classics, but lets try something a little different, shall we?
* White Christmas by Otis Redding
If you’re a follower of this series, you’ll know my adoration for Otis Redding. The saddest, sexiest soul voice.
* White Christmas by The Drifters
Yeah, I know that was the last song too. But the versions are both so different and beloved to me. This one reminds me of Home Alone.
* I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey
I had to pick it up – I was making myself cry. My dog hates when I sing this song. He runs away.
