I’m fond of the Coffeehouse channel on SiriusXM radio. It’s the station that plays acoustic versions of just about any song you could name. I’m not sure some songs SHOULD be performed acoustically, but for the most part I enjoy the offerings on Coffeehouse.
This week the station is playing only Christmas music, and I’ve become enamored of some of the songs.
I’d never heard of the group Civil Wars, but I really like their version of I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day. It’s a new take on a beautiful old favorite.
Likewise, Last Christmas by Denny Lloyd is a slower, sweeter version than Wham!’s.
And James Taylor’s Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is as wonderful as ever.
Christmas at the Airport is hilarious. I have no idea who Nick Lowe is, but he had me chortling as he sang about the travails of being snowed in at an airport on his trip home for the holidays.
Coffeehouse is Channel 14 on SiriusXM.
(Lest you worry that I took these photos while driving, let me assure you I pulled over before snapping any of these shots. We don’t want Santa to think I’ve been naughty, right?)
