Here we are, the final week before Christmas. We’ll all be making that mad dash for last-minute shopping, wrapping, organizing. And by we I mean me. How is it that each year Christmas seems to arrive much faster? I still have plenty of last-minute stuff to take care of, along with getting things packed and ready for our road trip on Friday. Yes, I’m crazy, why do you ask?
At least today we can get started right on the last stretch to the finish line with some awesome Christmas tuneage, thanks to Monday’s Music Moves Me. And since many of my friends will be celebrating Hanukkah starting at sunset tomorrow, let’s start this party off with Adam Sandler’s hilarious “Hanukkah Song”:
Next up is Faith Hill’s beautiful “Where Are You Christmas”:
Next up is one of my favorite former American Idol Champions, Carrie Underwood with a beautiful version of “Oh Holy Night”:
One of my favorite songs this time sung by Lauren Alaina “Grown Up Christmas Wish” (ignore the person who posted it as Growing Up…it’s Grown Up):
And finally, a fun version by some amazing Country Artists from Country Christmas 2011, “Jingle Bell Rock”:
Enjoy your Monday!
Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:
I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and her cohorts in crime, Lorie of The Shewbridges of Celebration, Florida, and Callie from JAmericanSpice for Monday’s Music Moves Me – want to join in the fun? It’s easy peasy! Just find a tune that rocks your boat, post it and link up – don’t forget to grab Xmas Dolly…er, um, I mean her button…over at her place here. Check out Xmas Dolly’s sidebar for the random themes we sport each week – and you can always ask for a specific theme of music you like, too. Check out the other music lovahs and let’s jam!
INTRODUCING “OUR SPOTLIGHT COUPLE”
The awesome Run DMT also hosts Music Monday:
I’m also linking up for what was the Sunday Song Hop and now is Pinning and Singing on the Weekend over at 5 Minutes Just For Me: I’m going to have to get busy pinning, but at least it’s to share music, too:
