Crank up the Christmas Jams

By Jaycee Hampton , Staff

What’s an absolute best way to get everybody into the Christmas spirit than Christmas Music!? Claim it or not, nobody can say they haven’t jammed out to Mariah Carey’s, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” once or twice in their lifetime; as Micheal Buble sings, “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas,” why not break out the Christmas music now? There are so many different types of Christmas music that anybody can get in the Christmas Spirit with.

Christmas music has been around for years. Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley are still considered “Kings of Christmas.” You may have heard of Frank Sinatra’s 1946s version of “White Christmas” on the radio as well as Elvis Presley’s 1957s “Blue Christmas.” Sinatra and Presley’s music brings a soft, classical feel that everybody seems to enjoy every once in a while.

If the classical side of Christmas music isn’t for you and you doubt liking any kind of Christmas music, maybe the A cappella group, Pentatonix brings to the table could change your mind. A cappella is defined as singing without instrumental background. Some a cappella groups focus on harmonizing while others use their voices to emulate instruments. Although Pentatonix is known for more than just their outstanding Christmas albums, there is no doubt their Christmas music is extraordinary. With songs such as “Little Drummer Boy,” and “White Winter Hymnal,” the musical group uses their talents in a unique way to get many people ready for the Holidays.

From Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas,” to “Last Christmas,” by Wham!, there is definitely some sort of Christmas music genre for everyone. If you want to hear these songs and more, click the link here to the media prime Spotify Christmas playlist: m
