It’s that time of year again, you can feel it in the air. The holiday season is finally upon us and that means we get to enjoy the music that comes along with it. From family favorites like “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee to Andy Williams’, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, the December playlist covers all the quintessential holiday tracks. My favorite part about holiday music is listening to different genres interpretation of classic songs. Bruce Springsteen puts a classic rock spinon “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”. And the Vince Gurauldi Trio takes a jazz interpretation over the Christian staple “O Tannebaum”. Also featured on the December playlist is holiday songs from different regions of the United States. Louis Armstrong sings about a dixieland Christmastime in New Orleans and Bing Crosby celebrates an island-style Christmas on “Mele Kalikimaka”. Get your daily dose of sleigh bell and enjoy the only holiday playlist out there without a Mariah Carey song on the Westside Wired December playlist!
