Playing on my iPod This Week (Dec 10) -- Barenaked For the Holidays

My apologies to the young ones reading my blog, but I really like the band Barenaked Ladies in spite of (or even because of) the name and their Christmas album is really fun. I think the DH is already tired of it, but I love it. I have a lot more love for the Christmas music than he does anyway, so one time through was probably enough for him.

I really enjoy Christmas music that is a little less traditional. I grew up with Soulful Strings, a Christmas album with all instrumental jazz arrangements of Christmas tunes and loved the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. Now, I enjoy the Manhattan Transfer and Cuba L.A. albums, but my favorite is Barenaked for the Holidays. Good stuff.

Take a listen (and be sure to stick with it, because it just gets better):

Yep, I don't like the name, but I LOVE the music. So I just say BNL when pressed.

Oh how I love Barenaked Ladies. This album is getting plenty of play time around my house also. The kids love singing along when Happy Birthday comes on!

I love Christmas music. I think your hub needs to get on board! I haven't heard this one yet, maybe we'll have to check it out.

The downside of having kids is not being able to say there name anymore. *sigh*

I love that obnoxious piano part before they start singing jingle bells.
