Sing It Frankie...

We've changed the playlist (song list) on the blog a bit. The first half are Christmas songs, the second half are "regular" songs. So feel free to browse around and choose your own listening pleasure while reading. Note: Usually, when we post, I try and put a song that relates at the top of the playlist. Yep, I'm that detailed....

While browsing for songs, we noticed something. Most of the songs we chose are "oldies." You know, the ones that remind you of your Aunt's house on Christmas, Grandma playing the old record player, baking cookies, decorating the tree, or shopping in the mall.

They just don't make music like they used to, do they? I guess it depends, but in the realm of Christmas music...most of the songs put out by today's popular artists are remakes. The likes of Frankie, Burl, Andy, and Bing are...well, are hard to find. Nevertheless, we enjoyed putting this together.

AJ's Dad's favorites: "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" by Elmo & Patsy and "The Christmas Song" by The Chipmunks. He chose these as they bring back happy memories with his Grandma Schmidt.

AJ's Mom's favorites: "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby and "Nutcracker". I chose these because they remind me of putting up our tree while watching the movie "White Christmas" and seeing the Nutcracker ballet almost every year.
