TOP TEN: Sleighing The Charts

Singles all the way.

Singles all the way.

The holidays seem to come earlier and earlier each year; unfortunately, it’s just what happens. I know that I’m not one for buying candy canes in September or hearing “Jingle Bell Rock” on the radio in October, but the Christmas spirit is a strong one. With Thanksgiving dinner sitting in our stomachs and December just around the corner, it is time to properly roll out the holiday celebrations with a playlist of some of my favorite seasonal selections for 2014.

Enjoy this mix of new tunes and a handful of cool updates to the classics. They’re all at retail now and the majority of these ten songs are also at radio, so be sure to get on those request lines (to Santa, of course.)
