Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


I haven’t done math on this, but I suspect Christmas is the most musical holiday. Sure there’s Que Sera, Sera for New Years and Monster Mash for Hallowe’en, but bands aren’t generally in the habit of coming out with a Thanksgiving album.

And so it was full of eggnog, shortbread, and holiday cheer that I asked my fellow Strumbellas what their favourite Christmas songs are. Turns out there’s quite a mix, from my recent pop Christmas classics to Simon’s choice of a five hundred year old hymn.

So here’s a few of our favourite Christmas tunes. What are some of yours?

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Darlene Love

Carol of the Bells – Mormon Tabernacle Choir


O Come, all Ye Faithful – Nana Mouskouri

Last Christmas – Wham!
