So here we are on day 1 of my 25 days of Christmas songs.
For my first song I picked Transiberian Orchestra’s Christmas Eve Sarajevo.
There’s a couple of reasons I picked this song. First, I loooooove Transiberian Orchestra. When I lived in NY, I would go see them in concert every year for the holidays (sometimes twice). The concerts were always awesome and the guys and girls in the band were truly happy just playing for us. So it reminds me a bit of home.
Also, I love the mix of the old and the new – the traditional Carol of the Bells and God, Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen with the hard rock of the guitars and drums. I love classical music, but if you can make a rock version of it I will love it even more 🙂
When decorating for Christmas, TSO is always on in the background so hearing this just gets me in the mood for the season. I have a mix of songs on my ipod that is just for Christmas and you’ll be seeing/hearing a lot of them in the next 25 days.
Until Next Time,
