Rock the Halls

I’ve decided to have a little fun this morning and talk about my second love, music. I’m taking a little break from all the serious novel writing. I’m putting the revisions, the query letters, the revised synopsis aside for a moment.

Pretty much everyone is familiar with Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Or Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas.” But, where are all the really rockin’ Christmas songs? Mariah Carey is no Aaron Lewis. Sorry Mariah.

I did some research this morning and I’ve come up with some Christmas songs that would put any rock fan in the Christmas spirit.

1. Metallica “Carol of the Bells.”

(This song actually has been debated as to whether or not it is Metallica. Me? I just love it. And since it’s my blog it stays.)

2. U2 “Baby Please Come Home For Christmas”

3. Weezer, “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”

4. Weezer, “O Come All Ye Faithful”

5. Aaron Lewis, “Silent Night”

Of course I had to fit Aaron Lewis in there! So, that’s a few songs for rock fans like myself to enjoy this holiday season. Know some I didn’t list? Feel free to add them. I’m always excited to listen to new music.  Want more ideas? Check out the links I have below.

For now, stay tuned. A hair band version of Christmas songs is coming up soon!

Peace and love this holiday season!

I’m out

Here I Come A-Caroling

It’s that time of year again, when I finally stop bah-humbing and get into the Christmas spirit. For some reason, this always seems to coincide with finally being out on Christmas break.

One thing I LOVE about Christmas is the carols.Not surprising when you consider how much I love music.

Soooooo….sounds to me like it’s about time for yet another musical blog.

My top five favorite Christmas carols.

1. The Carol of The Bells (The Metallica Version)

2. All I Want for Christmas Is You, Mariah Carey

3. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, sung by Sarah McLachlan

4. I’ll Be Home For Christmas, sung by Sheryl Crow

And last but not least, my absolute favorite…..

5. Hard Candy Christmas by Dolly Parton
