It’s funny how the traditional Christmas songs from way-back-when are still the core of music being sung today. There are not a lot of new Christmas songs being written and published (thankfully). These classic songs can stir up memories of some of our favorite times during the holiday season. We love to hear them, but sung by the voices from our past – Perry Como, Doris Day, Jimmy Durante, Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mercer. Although we can appreciate artists like Lady Gaga, Michel Buble, and even Justin Bieber creating their own versions of these classics, it’s just not the same.
For many of our blog followers, you get what we mean, but for our younger audience…you may not get what we mean. We highly suggest that you go and download these classic holiday songs from iTunes. Then you’ll see how they should be sung (and your electronic device will thank you for it).
