Christian Christmas Music Day 10 – Taylor Swift

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 10 – Taylor Swift – A country start that became the Pop icon

The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection Song – Silent Night

My family loves Taylor Swift.  Let me start by saying that we were Taylor Swift fans before Taylor Swift was Taylor Swift.  We have been fans since her country days and to be honest, there are times when we still listen to the “old songs” because Ms. Taylors voice and a guitar was just pure magic.  The same can be said with Taylor’s version of Silent Night.  It is such a change of pace (in a good way) to your traditional version of the song.  It was a song that we would listen to when we would be missing Georgia.

In 2014, my daughter and I had the chance of a lifetime to not only spend a night with Taylor Swift but also do so at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.  My daughter had an absolute blast! This concert had a huge impact on my daughter.  Even now at the age of 10, my daughter still wears Keds, writes poems, short stories, and has journals because “…thats what Taylor use to do”.  Since the concert she also started joining the school choir and has participated in plays.  Never would have imagined that a concert would have such an impact on a 8 year old.  Taylor Swift’s  1989 album is my families soundtrack during our adventures in the Pacific and Asia for the last two years.  Believe me, Shake it off and Blank Space has been blasted in the Philippines, Japan, and Guam plenty of times! -PJSLB

Christian Christmas Music Day 9 – Ed Ames

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 9 – Ed Ames – A voice from the 60’s

Christmas with Ed Ames Song – Away in a manger

Away in a manger
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky
Look down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
‘Til morning is nigh

Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me, I pray

Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven
To live with Thee there

 

My love for Hip Hop is well documented but sometimes you just need to bring it back to the classics.  Ed Ames has that kind of voice.  When you hear it, memories of the a different time comes.  Many of you have never heard of Ed Ames but after hearing this son, I hope you give him a try.  Ed always brings back the times when life was just a little more simple.  Merry Christmas to all!  =)  -PJSLB

There is no way i can have a favorite Christian music playlist and NOT include Ms. Daigle.  The Lord has blessed my family thru Lauren in time of sorrow and confusion for my daughter  and I have already sung the praises of this album, BEHOLD: A Christmas Collection.  I dare to say that Lauren Daigle is the modern day voice for Christian music.

Don’t let the long lines at the stores keep you down!  =)  -PJSLB

Christian Christmas Music Day 4

Day 4 – Mariah Carey – THE VOICE of my generation.

Merry Christmas Song – Jesus Born On This Day

The first Christmas album I ever bought.  I was a freshman in high school and while everyone was buying Dr. Dre’s album, my friends were laughing at me for buying this. Yes, Dre’s album is an Hip Hop masterpeice BUT its not an album i can listen to in the car with my 6 year old.  On the other hand, my daughters are belting out all the hits from this Christmas album!
