Twisted MixTape 36 – Christmas Song Mix

christmas tape

 

This is a re-release of last year’s Christmas mix-tapes, lots of great music for everyone!!! Take some time and check them out, maybe hit play on YouTube while you get your wrapping done. Merry Christmas!

 

I am a Christmas person. Really. My house looks like a Technicolor elf the size of a an elephant spewed his insides all over my house, basically it’s a colorful Chernobyl. I’m pretty sure you could see our house from the moon if you tried.

It follows that I love to make Christmas Mixes. So if you need a Christmas Song Mix, gimme a holler, cause I just learned from my friend Tweetless (Troy) from over at As Long As I’m Singing that you can share music through Dropbox! What?!

I start listening to Christmas somewhere in the middle of November, sue me. And we’ve got the Christmas Karaoke out too! So, without further Ado….

A Christmas Mix

Christmas Waltz by Harry Connick, jr. – I will say this one thing, nobody, and I mean nobody, sings this song like Karen Carpenter, but I also love this version for its peppiness (apparently that is a word, hmm). So Harry has the honor if coming in a close second.

 

And anyway, I gotta do this Carpenters song, and I didn’t want to be lame.
There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays by The Carpenters – Some side notes. The video is priceless 70’s, you can even get the whole Carpenters Christmas Special on YouTube if you can’t get enough! And secondly, the boy used to sing “I met a man who lived in Tennessee and he was headed for Transylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie!”

 

Sleigh Ride – Ella Fitzgerald. And Ella wishes you a Merry Christmas, isn’t that AWESOME! Thanks Ella!

 

We Need A Little Christmas by Johnny Mathis – This is one of my favorites, because as soon as it get’s cold this is how I feel. AND it’s from a musical! If you haven’t been around that long, you don’t know that I’m a theater brat. Well I am, I was raised on musicals. So if you haven’t seen Mame, I HIGHLY recommend!

 

Trust me that you have never heard a Christmas song like this before. If you only listen to one song on this mix, listen to this one. You can thank me later.

You know why you can thank me? I MADE THE VIDEO! When I couldn’t find this song on YouTube there was no way I was going to go without, so I just spent the last hour making this video. I’m pretty proud….

 

I usually don’t break my own rules, but I promised Isaiah I would use this song. (wink* wink*) only I didn’t, and he saw my list and now I’m busted! So here it is.

The Polar Express Theme Song – I must say the video is pretty awesome too.

 

P.S. Don’t bother wishing me Happy Holidays. After all, there’s a reason for the season. Without which it would just be the dead of winter. So Merry Christmas folks!

 

Thank you for listening! Now share your MixTape with all of us. The best part of this party is we get to hear so much music that may be new, may be forgotten or may be just what you wanted to hear right now.

These are the rules. Five songs (do your best to stick to it, I listen to every mix). Stick to the theme (as best you can). Check out the other players (everyone wants to share their tunes with you). Create a mix, not a “hey look at all the cool songs I know” we’re not snobs, if you were our best bud and you were gonna make us a tape, what would it be? And share this party so more people will play next week!

Do me a favor, if you’re a veteran, try and visit at least one person you’ve never visited before.

NOW PLAY
