Now that's What I Call Audra's Christmas

Anyone else think that it doesn't really feel like Christmas because it hasn't snowed?? Just us Ohioans maybe?? I feel like I've been slacking on the Christmas celebrating because a) I've been busy b) Jon was gone c) I did almost all of my shopping online, so never had to endure the busy mall scene with all it's Christmas decor from Halloween onward and d) There's no snow! Christmas has totally snuck up on me!

But since the big day is 6 days away, I am forcing myself to get getting in the spirit by cranking up the Christmas tunes today. You know those "Now That's What I Call Music" compilation CDs? They are usually terrible and I don't know why they're so popular BUT it's a great way for me to share my all-time favorite Christmas tunes.

All I Want for Christmas is You ~ Mariah Carey
** I bought this album on cassette when it came out and wore that thing OUT - loved it! **

Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime ~ Paul McCartney/Wings
** Nothing says Christmas like the electric piano **

Please Come Home for Christmas ~ Don Henley
** Don has one of the best voices in music - period. Bon Jovi's version of this song comes in a close second though **

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas ~ Kenny G
** Hahaha, laugh all you want. Kenny G may be full of cheese, but listen to this and tell me your heart isn't warmed by the magic of Christmas**

Do You Hear What I Hear? ~ Carrie Underwood
** I saw her perform this song live on a Christmas special, and was blown away. That girl has some talent - it gave me chills**

Last Christmas ~ Wham!
** George Michael, I don't care what anyone says. I love you **

Where Are You Christmas? ~ Faith Hill
** Just a beautiful non-traditional Christmas tune from a cute movie. Before Taylor Momsen went all skankified.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen ~ 98 Degrees
** I don't care how old I am, the 98 Degrees Christmas album will forever be one of my favorites **

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays ~ N'Sync
** Speaking of 90s boy bands, how could this not be on the list? Boy bands these days ain't got NOTHIN' on my boys! **

Winter Wonderland/Sleigh Ride ~ Dolly Parton
** A throwback from childhood - Loves me some Dolly **

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) ~ U2
** Did you know Bono and I share the same birthday???**

What's on your Christmas playlist???
