It's hard to believe we're less than a week away from Thanksgiving already! I know for many, that's the point when they're ready for Christmas music. At least, that's the popular line a lot of people like to say.
Well, there certainly are a lot in the other group, the ones who are ready to listen to Christmas music right now! We're off to another record-breaking season, with listeners in 48 states, Washington DC and 62 other countries! By the way, the two hold-out states are Vermont and Alaska, so feel free to pester any friends you have there so we can have all of the United States by Thanksgiving!
We're still loading music, and probably will continue to do that way into December. Over 1300 songs are in rotation now, though, and there are thousands more on the way!
It looks like this week's Top Ten (which is actually a Top Twenty, since we have such a huge library) is completely different from last week's. Pretty soon, I expect the Top Ten will change almost every day!
If you want to help and rate the music we play, you actually have to go through Live 365, which you can get to by going here --> http://www.live365.com/stations/soundsofchristmas
I also wanted to mention that whether you listen through our website here or over at Live 365, you don't have to stay on the page. If you click on the little double box in the upper right hand corner, the player will pop out, so you can go wherever you want on the web and still listen to the Sounds of Christmas!
So with all that said, here's this week's Top Ten...
1) Ben E. King "The Christmas Song”
2) Harry Connick Jr. "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”
3) James Brown "Santa Claus, Santa Claus”
4) The Motels "Santa Baby”
5) She and Him "Little Saint Nick”
6) The Drifters "White Christmas”
7) The Pretenders "Happy Christmas”
8) James Taylor "Deck The Halls”
9) BarlowGirl "Carol Of The Bells/Sing We Now Of Christmas”
10) Bryan Adams "Christmas Time”
11) Belinda Carlisle "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”
12) Tina Lambert "O Christmas Tree"
13) Blondie "We Three Kings”
14) Michael Keaton "Frosty the Snowman”
15) Trans-Siberian Orchestra "Promises To Keep”
16) Stevie Wonder "Silver Bells”
17) Marshall Crenshaw "Santa Bring My Baby Back To Me”
18) Lisa Kessler "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”
19) Vincent Poag "This Christmas”
20) Johnny Cash "The ChristmasSpRichard Kincaid “Magic Holiday”
Yes, I know there are twenty. Since we play so much more Christmas music than anyone else, I just thought our Top Ten list should be bigger, too!
Thanks so much for listening! And May You Always Believe In Santa Claus!
