The holidays are an occasion for celebration, and we can’t think of a better way to rejoice than with a little music.
My current favorite is A Happy Puppy Christmas, with stunning renditions of Merry Christmas Darling and Chester the Chicken’s Egg-White Christmas.
The Librivox volunteers took a break from recording audio books to sing some Christmas carols – my favorites are God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, Dona Nobis Pacem and Away in a Manger.
If you’re looking for something truly “alternative,” may I suggest:
- Merry Christmas 2004 by SonnyJim
- Silber Sounds of Christmas
- Christmas with the Swirrels
- A Technetium Christmas
- The 8bits of Christmas
- 12 Drugs of Christmas
you’ve forgotten this beatiful one: The Peppermill Karaoke Hymnal
Another alt-Christmas gem I found was this
Square Root of Christmas
Not only did they give me permission to use their snow in another production, but there are festive birds with frickin’ laser beams…
