Winter Tunes

I know that its still Thanksgiving's time to shine, but I'm ready for Christmas. After hearing that it snowed in Seoul and with all the holiday stuff out at Target, I'm ready from some holiday music.

While browsing the latest holiday selections on iTunes (I know. So geeky) I came across The Hotel Cafe Presents Winter Songs, a compilation of original and classic winter tunes (Ooh. Very PC!) sung by a gaggle of talented female singers, including Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, Lenka, Fiona Apple, Colbie Caillat, and Holly Conlan. It's like a Grey's Anatomy OST, only with songs about winter. Unfortunately, the album also features a version of "White Christmas", moaned by Katy Perry. Just go ahead and skip that track or delete it from your iPod. Otherwise, it's a very wintery album. Makes me want to drink a cup of hot cocoa.

Someone kindly posted the ablum on imeem, so you'll find a nice little sampler below.

Maybe it's because Katy Perry started out in the biz' as a Christian singer that her music is so objectionable to you, annalog... strangely enough, it only seems to encourage one of my other friends who finds her irresistable.

I don't judge singers on their religious affiliations. I only judge singers on their voice. Okay, okay. Also, their hair, abs, and clothes. And, the people they date. But, I swear, not religion. I actually like Katy Perry's most recent single, but I am just not feeling her version of "White Christmas", even if she recorded it for charity.
