The soundtrack that brings us into a joyful union of the Christmas spirit and warm gatherings of loved ones and kindred companions is something most of us build over time. We add to the mix songs of seasonal nostalgia and traditional foundations while enhancing the holiday mood like a candy cane garnish in a hot mug of coca.
One notable release this year is Holiday’s Rule Vol 2, which features everyone from Paul McCartney to Lake Street Dive. Song for song, this is the perfect shopping or road trip to Grandma’s house compilation.
From the poppy a capella rendition of “Wonderful Christmastime” by Paul McCartney, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots to the sultry “Christmas Moon” by Grace Potter, these 16 tracks of classics wrap this season with a nice big bow.
May this new addition to your Christmas soundtrack be the cinnamon broom for your ears this holiday season.
