More Christmas Songs that Don’t Suck

25 12 2011

In my last post, I focused on rock and roll Christmas songs.   Most of the holiday songs I like — the versions as opposed to the tunes themselves — are not rock and roll.  The older I get, I probably like more mellow stuff.  I get the emotion from the beauty more than the energy of music these days.  In the past, I’ve made Christmas CD’s which included a lot of what follows.  I hope you enjoy.

Heads up: this next one is ridiculous.  I might be the funniest song I’ve ever heard!

This is a close friend of mine, Caleb Gilbert, playing a Christmas classic on the highland pipes, with his band, The Blackhouse Ceilidh. Love it.

This one isn’t typically played at Christmas, but it’s the song for the New Year, penned by Scotland’s most beloved poet, Rabbie Burns

And by Dougie MacLean
