Holiday Picks: Sounds of the Holidays
If your house is like ours, your Christmas Tree is already up, your Menorah is in the window and you've got holiday music playing in between the repeated viewings of such holiday movies as A Charlie Brown Christmas and The Grinch That Stole Christmas.
What are we listening to? I'm glad you asked because I have definite opinions on holiday music and I'm not afraid to make those opinions known - right?
First on my list of must play music comes from a singer whose voice is so imprinted on my childhood memories that at first hearing, I'm immediately transported back to that happy time. My mother loved Christmas music and I remember evenings spent listing to Nat King Cole, Englebert Humperdink, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin croon the Christmas standards.
Being a particular fan of Dean Martin, Christmas with Dino is one of my faves. Featuring holiday cuts from the Capitol Records album A Winter Romance and selections from The Dean Martin Christmas Album on Reprise Records, this album is quintessential Dean.
