Christmas CD Wishlist

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

My Christmas CDs are out of storage! I’m sorting through them, picking out my favorites. I guess I’m old fashioned, haven’t moved to MP3 downloads. A few of the ones I like the most are:

Alan Jackson – Let It Be Christmas
Ally McBeal – Ally McBeal: A Very Ally Christmas
Diane Krall – Christmas Songs
Josh Groban – Noel

I have lots more than that – Celtic, Jazz, the Chipmunks….

This year I’m going to add one new CD to the mix, but I’m torn between several. Here's my wishlist:

Michael Buble – Christmas  - #1 in the Amazon store - he sings Cry Me A River, but can he top Robert Downey, Jr’s anguished rendition on the Ally CD?

M. Ward - A Very She & Him Christmas - the cover calls to me (you can buy individual downloads for 99 cents each).

Carole King – A Holiday Carole - I loved Tapestry!
 
What a tough decision. I might have to add all three.
I have so many questions for you:
  • What are your favorites?
  • Have you listened to the three on my wish list and can you recommend?
  • Do you do MP3 downloads and if so, what do you think?
