Music Obsessions [December 2017]: Celebrating the Holidays!

music obsessions

December is finally here!

We’re a bit of a Christmas holiday nut over here and being Canadians, we already got the whole Thanksgiving done back in October so its full steam ahead in November to start decorating for Christmas. We had about 80% of everything set up by November 20th with only just little things to do for outside decorations and garlands on ramps and whatnot. Suffice to say, Christmas decorating and Christmas music almost go hand in hand.

As usual, some Christmas and some other music obsessions to balance things out! 🙂

Cold December Night – Michael Buble

Kicking off with some Christmas music! What is Christmas without Michael Buble, right? Well, I’m a Michael Buble fan, so I guess I’m slightly biased. That also means that there will be a more traditional Christmas music a la Michael Buble style later on in this post also.

Hypnotized – Set It Off

I have no idea how I missed this song by Set It Off which was released earlier this year. I love their style a lot and this one is really no exception.

O Holy Night – Voiceplay feat Rachel Potter

Voiceplay and Rachel Potter collabs always turn out really awesome. O Holy Night is one of those songs that I remember from an elementary school recital. I can’t say its particularly a fond memory although at least it wasn’t embarrassing, just included an angel costume. Still, this rendition is fabulous.

Nobody Else – RetroVision x Raven & Kreyn

Lighthearted and fun are the only two words that I can use to describe this song. Nobody Else is what of those songs that I love for their uplifting style which makes it a great song to bring up the energy any time.

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch – Lindsey Stirling ft. Sabrina Carpenter

Christmas classics are the most fun to watch in the holiday season. I have my faves of course. Charlie Brown Christmas, Garfield Christmas Special and of course, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I always love to hear different versions of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch. And this one is absolutely cool.

How Long – Charlie Puth

If you asked me back in the Meghan Trainor duet days whether Charlie Puth was on my radar, I’d probably tell you no. But the last few songs that I’ve discovered with Charlie Puth has honestly been quite catchy. I’m not exactly a fan of the lyrics in this one but its a catchy beat to it that works.

All I Want For Christmas – Michael Buble

Okay..so I know my husband thinks this (and a lot of other people) that Mariah Carey is really the only one that can do this song justice however, I do think Michael Buble does a great job with it. Plus, its nice to see the Christmas music renditions he does. I don’t have it here, but go and check out a guy version of Santa Baby. Its hilarious and awesome all at the same time.

And for something a little different…

Light shows are such a staple for the winter events. Lyon had the Bandai Namco Insert Coin Lightshow that looks fantastic. It showed off Pacman, Tekken 7 and Little Nightmares which higlights both new and old titles.

This wraps up the Music Obsessions for this month & the last of 2017!
It will be back in 2018!
