Music Monday: Recent Christmas Songs

If you've been around here for any length of time, you know how much I love Christmas music!  Last week, I shared my readers' favorite Christmas songs

This week, I wanted to share some Christmas songs that have been released recently that I just love!  They're not remakes of traditional songs (which I also love, of course), but they are originals that I hope will eventually become holiday staples....they certainly are for me!

Christmas Eve with You ~Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester) & Jayma Mays (Emma Pillsbury): Glee
 
This isn't an actual video as for whatever crazy reason this song was never aired in an episode!  (Insane.  I know.)  It's beautiful.
 
And it's currently the alarm on my phone.
 
On this Winter's Night ~Lady Antebellum
  
 
I love this song.  I love Lady Antebellum.  I love Hillary Scott's voice.  I think what I love most about her is that her range is similar to mine, so I can always sing her songs! :)

Underneath the Tree ~Kelly Clarkson

 
Kelly performed this song live on The Voice this week (not this video), and it caused me to download her new Christmas album.  (It's only $7.99 on iTunes!)  The album is pretty good.  I actually prefer her original songs to the remakes of traditional songs.  Don't get me wrong, her voice is amazing, but I like my traditional Christmas songs without a lot of crazy embellishment.  She does a lot of that with them.  Her rendition of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is in a pretty high key, and it just doesn't sound right to me.  I still prefer Dean Martin & Doris Day's version.

ANYWAY....are there any recent Christmas songs that you really love?  Have you heard Kelly's new album, Wrapped in Red?  Please share! :)

I am way out of the loop, apparently, because I haven't heard any of these songs yet... thanks for sharing! PS I am loving the new blog design so much!

I bought Kelly's album... I love it! Her voice is phenomenal, and she just seems so *normal*.

"On This Winter's Night" is so pretty.

Have you ever heard "Real" by Nichole Nordeman? It's goooooooooorgeous. One of my favorites this year.
