Play List: More of My Favorite Christmas Albums

Remember when I said that I would get a new favorite Christmas albums post out before it got too late to enjoy it before Christmas came? So that didn’t quite happen…it’s Christmas Eve. But you still have a day or two (or more, if you’re the kind of person that keeps listening to holiday music…

Throwback Thursday: “O Little Town of Bethlehem”

I had to get in one more Throwback Thursday post for the Christmas season. (There’s probably a lot of them I could have made, but I’ll just content myself with these two that I’ve had, and direct any others I might have made to something else.) Here’s a beautiful rendition of an old favorite, with…

“The Sing-Off” Holiday Special Recap: Sing

It’s been a while, folks, since I’ve gotten to sit down and watch “TV’s number one a cappella competition” (AKA its only one, Nick Lachey…). I was a loyal watcher (and recapper) of seasons 2 and 3 of “The Sing-Off,” but then I went off to Peru, and thus was not here in the States for…

Hoy estaba buscando canciones navideñas en español, y encontré un álbum que Luis Miguel, el cantante de México bastante conocido, grabó en 2006. De eso…

Throwback Thursday: “Christmas Lights”

This blog has become very British as of late. Laura Mvula, Sam Smith, Kate Bush…I mean, I knew I was an Anglophile, but this trend is interesting. And it will continue with a Throwback Thursday post harking back to a song I highlighted 4 years ago this week. I’ve found it a bit uncharacteristically rocky…

Artist Spotlight: Laura Mvula

I haven’t been able to get around to posting lately, so now’s a great time to take on one of my first items of ‘business,’ my first full-fledged Artist Spotlight post in…ouch. It’s been nearly 3 full years. The last time I did a full Artist Spotlight was on Sia in Feb. 2012. She kind…
