A Video Interlude: Happy Holidays

For the Christmas holiday, I thought some music would be appreciated. The first up is a group called Straight No Chaser.

Straight No Chaser – 12 Days

Here is another from Straight No Chaser.

Straight No Chaser – Christmas Can Can

For something different (and not heard in decades) here is “Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt:

Eartha Kitt – Santa Baby

It wouldn’t seem the season without the original —

Nat King Cole – The Christmas Song

What is Christmas without “The Little Drummer Boy”? A different version than usual, but quite good.

Pentatonix – The Little Drummer Boy

Although not a holiday song, I think this makes a great ending piece.

ABBA – I have a Dream

Merry Christmas!
