12 Days Of Christmas Music To Knock Your Socks Off (Day 12)

Let us not forget, in this time of recalling the story of the Nativity, the one very human person who made it all relatable to a human audience. Here: a soothing, musical meditation, dedicated to all the mothers who actually make Christmas happen in so many homes where emotional labors are left to women, either by necessity or by choice or by neglect. Merry Christmas to all of you, and to all of you.

12 Days of Christmas Music To Knock Your Socks Off (Day 11)

I love this arrangement of “Winter Wonderland” and also love the way Harry Connick, Jr, plays it. I love the piano and love playing the piano. I loved the movie When Harry Met Sally, from whose soundtrack this song comes. And I love Christmas. I am filled with love.

Happy Solstice, everyone! This entertaining song comes to us from Dar Williams, one of the best most-underrated singer/songwriters ever. Watch for more of her work in my earworm series in the new year.

And special thanks to my dear friend Amber who turned me onto her music in the first place.

This song is a little less traditional. I know it from the Barenaked Ladies Christmas music album, but I only just discovered tonight that it was from the soundtrack to one of the live-action Grinch movies, probably the one with Jim Carrey. I didn’t remember it from seeing the movie back in the day. Ah well. I like the song, at any rate, and since we’re currently experiencing a slight warming trend here in Houston (kind of a bummer, not gonna lie), we’re going with it.
