    Top 5 Christmas Albums We’re Loving Right Now

    Christmas is here, gals! We’ve been rocking out to Christmas music all month long, and plan to continue right through the new year. Might as well get our fill of those classic tunes while we can! As you enjoy your holiday this week, we want to share some of our favorite albums with you and hope you’ll share your personal favorites with us, too. It’s always fun to trade favorites and perhaps in doing so, gain new discoveries.

    Psst: We decided to skip albums T.M. has previously highlighted. You can see her picks here and here!

     

    Vince Guaraldi Trio, A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

    If jazz is your thing (or you just really love Charlie Brown), you too probably appreciate this soundtrack to the hit holiday movie.

     

    Ella Fitzgerald, Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas (1960)

    If you’re into traditional jazz, you must listen to the holiday album of the “First Lady of Jazz” herself, Ms. Fitzgerald! A Christmas classic that’s nothing but class.

     

    Frank Sinatra, A Jolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra (1957)

    C’mon…it’s Sinatra! No one can really compare. (Speaking of music icons, Bob Dylan made a pretty good Christmas album, too.)

     

    A Very Special Christmas (1987)

    Record industry titan Jimmy Iovine organized this all-star benefit album for the Special Olympics in 1987. It’s chock full of awesome ’80s favorites: U2’s version of “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home),” Bruce Springsteen’s live version of “Merry Christmas Baby,” The Pretenders’ remake of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” John Mellencamp’s take on “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” and more. Sure, these artists are all “before your time,” but they’re classics that every age can enjoy.

     

    She & Him, A She & Him Christmas (2011)

    Tons of classics, all done in indie soft sweetness from actress Zooey Deschanel’s twosome. If you loved her singing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” in the movie Elf, you’ll probably love her holiday album.

     

    Girls, what is YOUR favorite holiday album? Do you only listen to it in November/December or do you break it out year-round?
