What a time of year for a little bit of bliss! I'm thrilled to be part of Blissemas 2012! See details below on how to enter to win a Kindle Fire. Here's a look at some of my favorite holiday songs!
5.) “Christmas Wrapping” – The Waitresses. An ’80s classic, and yes, they spelled it “wrapping” back then. These days, it would be shortened to “rapping.” If you haven’t heard it, hit iTunes.
4.) “Mele Kalikimake” – Chris Isaak. Really, who am I kidding? I love his entire Christmas album and he features many of these songs. His “Blue Christmas” makes me swoon. Have I mentioned I’ve seen him almost a dozen times in concert? Yes. *Blush*
3.) “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” – Christina Aguilera. The songstress absolutely soars on this merry making tune.
2.) “Blue Christmas” – Female vocals. This song’s been redone so many times, but in my mind, it’s always a sad female voice, and I imagine the cartoon of her leaning against a window with a gigantic tear sliding down her face. Although, the ultimate classic remains Elvis.
1.) “Last Christmas” – Wham U.K. – Yes, I also own the Glee rendition, and it’s one of my 5-year-old daughter’s favorites. Quite ironic to have a song from my high school years redone. Extra kudos go to George Michaels’s highlighted hair in the video, and his “breathy” vocals.
Here’s a look at a new release:
The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf 4: The Wolfe Pack
Silver Ashe can’t let go of the desire to find her birth father and the urge to join a pack. Against the wishes of her brother, Trevor, and her vampire-lover, Nick, Silver leaves New Orleans for the woods of Louisiana.
As the guard and a dominant member of the Wolfe Pack, Viktor isn’t too sure of the city-dwelling stranger who comes trespassing. With the lack of female werewolves, Viktor soon sees Silver as a potential mate. Too bad she’s already spoken for by a bloodsucker.
Trapped between worlds, Silver’s faced with choosing between the lover she’s known most of her life, and the budding relationship with Viktor, where her future may lay. It’ll take some sweet talking and a whole lot of loving for Silver to find her place within the pack.
