Monday's Music Moves Me: 12/19/2011 ~ Six Days 'Til Christmas Plus a Little Hanukkah, Too



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. We are entering into the holiday season, so from now until the end of December, we will be posting Christmas Songs!! WooHoo, my favorite kind of music, there are so many more songs to choose and only this week to post. Not to mention that tomorrow is Hanukkah, so I want to honor my Jewish friends also.... Oh, what to post, what to post.....

First in honor of the first day of Hanukkah on the 20th I want to share this song by a group I have recently become aware of and I am totally loving. I hope you enjoy.....

Candlelight ~ The Maccabeats

And, of course, I had to share this Hanukkah song with you all, just to make you smile - cause that's what I do.....

The Hanukkah Song (Original) ~ Adam Sandler

Now for my Christmas songs... Here's a couple of cute ones to make you laugh:

Poinsettia Percy ~ Elmo and Patsy

Senor Santa Claus ~ Jim Reeves

(It Must've Been 'ol) Santa Claus ~ Harry Connick, Jr.

Who Spiked the Eggnog ~ Straight No Chaser

And now for some more traditional songs that I really love.....

The first song I really love, but I have just discovered this group and they do an amazing job at it, I hope you like it as much as I do:

Mary Did You Know ~ Kutless

The next two songs are two of my absolute favorites because they are beautiful and they really move me. They are sung by some of the most amazing singers ever.....

Gloria in Excelsis Deo ~ Andrea Bocelli

O Come All Ye Faithful ~ Celtic Woman

I hope you enjoyed all the music I chose - sorry it was so long, but I just love Christmas music and couldn't decide which ones to leave out. What songs have put you in the holiday mood??? Write up a post and let us know... Here is all you need to do to play along:

*** Just one more thing...
PLEASE, we are family friendly blogs and while we really don't want to censor anyone,
but we do ask that you keep your songs rated PG13 or less.

please find a different venue. If your song does contain a small amount of questionable Language, please put a disclaimer BEFORE the video.
Thank you very much!***

Mary Did You Know is one of my favorites, as well is just about anything Celtic Women sings. I loved your picks! I hope you have a blessed Merry Christmas!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Love love LOVE your picks, Lorie! Perfect way to start off a Monday! :)

Happy Hanukkah and Where Are You Christmas Oh Holy Night? My Grown Up Christmas Wish is to Jingle Bell Rock!

Adam is alsways so funny!

And I totally forgot about that Bocelli song! I need to add it to my list.

Great choices!

Happy Holidays!

Love HARRY CONNICK JR.! My daughter says playing that song 3 times in a row is excessive. I think it was just right.

Happy Holidays!!!

Well those are all different I must admit. Please go to today's Post for your apology. I should've sent out a letter to have Denise cover me, and I thought I did, but I guess I didn't, so I've visited a few tonight, but I'll see the rest tomorrow. maybe it'll get me back in the Christmas spirit. It explains everything, so I'm apologizing to all my co-elves, and our followers in hopes they'll forgive me for not expolaining my absence. Again truly sorry. Have a nice day. Love your choices & so many I've never heard. I like to add new Christmas songs to my list & Harry Jr. Oh yeah... great voice & a hotty! woo hoo!
