Best songs of 2013

Posted January 1, 2014 By admin

Well, it’s a couple days later than I planned, but here are the best songs of 2013. The reason I am late posting this is that in the past I try to pick whatever songs can fit on 2 CD’s. It was time consuming narrowing them down that way, and at some point I figured why limit myself. I’m probably the last person who still uses CD’s anyways, so I just figured I will pick whatever songs I want, and not worry about limits like that. So, here are my favorite songs of 2013:

Merry Christmas

Posted December 25, 2010 By admin

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everybody is staying safe and warm. Our family exchanged presents and had dinner earlier today and it just reminds me how thankful I am for everything I have. I come from a big family (9 brothers and sisters), so there is never a dull moment here. Well, anyways, since this is mainly a music blog, here are some great Christmas songs I’ve been digging lately, including my favorite Christmas song ever, “Christmastime Is Here“. Hope everyone is doing good, I’m about to head back to watching A Christmas Story for the 6th time this Christmas!

  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- She & Him (ft. Conan O’Brien on guitar)
  • Santa Papi- Maria Isa
  • Christmas Day- Dido
  • Silent Night- Sixpence None The Richer
  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- Judy Garland
