Musical Advent Calendar Day 9

Feels like the Bleak Midwinter these days.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 8

Since some shopping has already been done, time to get a head start on wrapping.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 7

Musical Advent Calendar Day 6

OK, two tracks by Billy May and his Orchestra today. First, let's start a movement to put the Santa Claus back in Christmas.


Bonus track: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo by Billy May and his Orchestra.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 5

Guess I'm a traditionalist at heart, which means Bing Crosby, the cornerstone of Christmas Music. Today's pick is Bing Crosby's Do You Hear What I Hear?


Bonus Track: (Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag by Kay Starr

Musical Advent Calendar Day 4

Day 4 of the musical Advent calendar. Probably my favorite contemporary take on a classic. Since it snowed....


Bonus track, since I couldn't pick just one: We Wish you the Merriest

Musical Advent Calendar Day 3

Trying to keep things seasonal with Dean:


Musical Advent Calendar Day 2

Feeling a little Lounge-y today:


Musical Advent Calendar Day 1

Let's start things slowly. A handful of Christmas decoration are up in the neighborhood and some folks have their trees up already, which I just will never understand. That said, the holiday season is upon us. No snow just yet.

First up: Christmas is coming. From the only modern musical classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas.


2010 Musical Advent Calendar Intro

So I got it in my head to do a 25-day musical Advent calendar of sorts. I know of only a few people who do this these days on their weblog, though I know there's probably a lot of it about. I'm also seeing people posting similar things on Facebook. I'll post a link to a Christmas/holiday song or two each day, perhaps with a little commentary. After all, there's boatload of content on YouTube just ripe for embedding.

I'll post here and probably duplicate things over on Facebook, as that's where all the kids are these days.
