Merry Christmas! I'm getting ready to head out into the throng one more time for a final round of shopping, before Lisa and I retire to separate parts of the house to watch "A Christmas Story" and wrap until dawn (hopefully only til about midnight, but you never know)!
Thanks so much for spending part of your holiday with the Sounds of Christmas! Even though it's Christmas Eve, I'm still adding new music to the station, including new Christmas tracks from Percy Sledge, Steve Miller, Sarah McLachlan and Smashing Pumpkins!
There's an all-new top ten this week, and since we're now in the middle of Chanukah, I've also added a second top ten of our highest rated Chanukah songs from the past week!
By the way, if you want to help and rate the music we play, it's not too late! You just have to listen through Live 365, which you can get to by going here --> http://www.live365.com/stations/soundsofchristmas
I also wanted to mention that if you listen through our website, 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) Trans-Siberian Orchestra "A Mad Russian's Christmas”
2) Bing Crosby "Good King Wenceslas”
3) Stevie Wonder "What Christmas Means To Me”
