There's nothin' like a little holiday tunage to get you in the mood for the big day. The day when the fat bearded man jumps down your chimney, raids your fridge, scares your pets and hopefully leaves you a big stash. I'm sure you're sick of hearing the same old records your parents pull out every year. This year YOU should get to pick the Christmas tunes. Kidzworld did a little digging around and here's what we found...


Some of our picks may drive your 'rents crazy (payback time for all the years you had to listen to Burl Ives - that guy who looks like a garden gnome) but some of them might be good enough to convince your dad to dance with your smelly Aunt Edna.


Newer Christmas Albums

Many of your fave pop stars have recorded Christmas CDs at the North Pole. If you listen carefully you might even hear a couple of "Ho ho ho's" in the background! Give these a listen:

  • *NSYNC: Home for Christmas
  • Blink-182: I Won't Be Home For Christmas
  • 98 Degrees: This Christmas
  • Destiny's Child: 8 Days of Christmas
  • Jewel: Joy/Holiday Collection
  • Christina Aguilera: My Kind of Christmas



Classic Christmas Albums

When you hear the words "Classic Christmas" don't think old timers music - think music that has stood the test of time. Here are a few picks that keep on spinning:

  • Elvis: Christmas Album
  • Ella Fitzgerald: Wishes You A Swinging Christmas
  • Boney M.: 20 Greatest Christmas Songs (this one includes a wicked version of Feliz Navidad)



Various Christmas Albums

If you want some compilation CDs with songs by many of your fave artists then check out the A Very Special Christmas series of albums. For a jazzy CD of piano tunes, check out Charlie Brown Christmas and if you really want to have a jazzy Christmas then check out Harry Connick Jr.'s When My Heart Finds Christmas. If a honky tonk Christmas is more your style then check out Garth Brooks' Magic of Christmas.
