Well, I finally finished. It took until 2am last night, but I finally worked out all of the kinks for this year’s Christmas Mix. You see, the problem was that I was so hooked on last year’s mix that I just couldn’t get in the mindset for this year’s list. However, I’ve decided to accept that while last year’s mix was awesome, this year’s mix is also wonderful in its own right.
I am also considering the possibility of having next year’s mix be a favorite songs through the years CD. We’ll see what happens next year, and who releases albums.
Now, without further ado, let me introduce to you The 2013 Christmas Mix.
If you’re interested, here’s my ramble about The Mix in no particular order. My favorite song on the mix is One Wish This Christmas by Nikki Yanofsky. Please don’t tell Pentatonix. Also, I know that PTX’s Little Drummer Boy made it really big this year, but they also released another Christmas song this year, and I liked it even a little bit better. I was really excited that I found a New Years song to end the album with, the first words are “two minutes ’til it’s midnight, we’ve been drinking since the sun went down, everyone’s been kissing, throwing love around” (to everybody who knows me IRL, you know how ridiculous it is that I just quoted song lyrics). I was glad I was able to fit in some Disney stars on the mix – shout out to Bridgit Mendler and Shane Harper. I saw Talain Rayne in concert two years ago when I saw Dinner and a Suit. He posted that song on Facebook WEEKS ago and it’s been on the list ever since. Also, Barlowgirl is one of the only repeat artist from last year, I kind of fell in love with those harmonies. Oh, and Anthem Light’s All I Want for Christmas is the only thing that even comes close to Mariah’s and the one from Love Actually if you ask me (yes, I know Big Time Rush was on the mix next year, and while I love them, I maybe shouldn’t have done that). Andrew Ripp’s Joy to the World and Molly Jenson’s O Come, O Come Emmanuel almost made last year’s mix but I ran ou tof room. And everything else in between is pretty wonderful. And I’m VERY glad the search is over until next year.
