Each holiday season, I look forward to Christmas music. Last evening, I set the IPod to bed for the season. Over the years, I have gathered entirely too much music to play over the short season. I have music that is artist unknown, album unknown and in some cases name unknown. Often times I am able to go back and get the information that one needs for the current day IPod.
I tend towards the same types of artists I like at any other time of year. Some old forgotten albums got a lot of play this year, such as Breath of Heaven: A Holiday Collection, by Grover Washington. I ordinarily do not listen to a lot of Grover. My number one single was “Silver Bells” by the Pointer Sisters. It is a little different to get you in the Christmas groove. My number two single was Cassandra Wilson, singing “Little Drummer Boy”. I totally forgot I owned Teddy Pendergas and “Winter Snow” by Isaac Hayes.
Time goes so musically fast during the holidays.
