The Post About The Rabbit Recommends v.104

Each week or so I post a readable or watchable and/or a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens after my recommendation. Ignore, embrace, debate. 

Earlier volumes of The Rabbit Recommends can be found here.

Little Debbie Christmas Tree cake
This is the Christmas Music Must-Have Edition.

Rabbit Sidebar: I waited patiently until the turkey was fully digested on Thursday before indulging in holiday music. It wasn't easy to withhold since there seemed to be Santa soundtracks on every corner. I wanted desperately to harmonize with each one of them.

Here's 10 songs to add to your Peace on Earth playlist.

1. Love Is Christmas by Sara Bareilles
This is brand new out of the Bareilles box in 2011. "Love is who we are, and no season can contain it." I would punch a reindeer in the face if that line could be true.

2. Be Born In Me by Francesca Battistelli
This is "Mary's Song" from the new album Music Inspired by The Story (an album I highly recommend you splurge on.) I've always fancied lyrics from the perspective of Jesus' young mom like Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant. But this one? "I'll hold you in the beginning, You will hold me in the end." I'm a wreck.

3. O Come, O Come Emmanuel by The Civil Wars
There is no Christmas song I love more than this. The very reason of the season sung by the reason for duos.

4. Mary and Joseph by Dave Barnes

I could have chosen any song from Dave's album "Very Merry Christmas" and it would have been a winner. But this one is quaint and unexpected.

5. Winter Snow by Audrey Assad
Rabbit Confession: I adore Chris Tomlin's songwriting, but not necessarily his voice. So when he wrote this beautiful conversation with Christ, I sighed with relief that Ms. Assad was chosen to sing lead.

6. River by Joni Mitchell
I first heard this song during an episode of Alias. Sydney learns her childhood was even more messed up than she previously believed. This song plays while Vaughn comforts her. I wouldn't mind Vaughn comforting me. This concept may impact my infatuation with this song.

If this description resonates, then we could be best friends.

7. I Wonder as I Wander by Audra McDonald and Mormon Tabernacle Choir
This is one of my Mom's favorites. Mine too.

8. Carol of the Bells by Straight No Chaser
This songs just screams white gloves and frosted breath to me. And guys who can sing harmony is never a bad thing.

9. Christmastime is Here by Vince Guaraldi
Charlie Brown and Kevin McAllister. Classic.

10.  Winter Song by Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles
If you have a dinner party and play this song in the background, then your guests will hug you and drop twenties in your candy dish. The song is that good.

What's one of your favorite Christmas songs? What song will make you want to shoot Santa before the season is wrapped?
