Christmas Music Monday: Christmas Movie Soundtracks

Mondays are not always given credit for being particularly enjoyable, but Music Mondays are fabulous!  Today, I’ll be showcasing some splendiferous selections guaranteed to give you a taste of that ol’ Christmas Spirit!!

These Music Monday choices are all about Christmas Movie Soundtracks.  And surprisingly, there are quite a few to choose from.  This is just a small sample of my favorites.  As usual, please remember:  That One Mom is an Amazon Affiliate and clicking on any of these links will take you to their website.  Any purchases via Amazon Affiliate links provide commission to us at no additional cost to you.


White Christmas:  Sadly they didn’t make a soundtrack album to the “White Christmas” movie, so what you get is a compilation of a couple of different albums.  Of course, as long as you’ve got Bing singing White Christmas, you have all you need!


Home Alone (The First One):  Although mostly instrumental, this soundtrack does have a few vocal pieces.  “Somewhere In My Memory” alone makes it worth having!


Elf:  This whole entire soundtrack is wonderful in my opinion–even if it’s not all Christmas.  Leon Redbone and Zooey Deschanel do the absolute best rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” nobody yet has beat Eartha Kitt’s version of “Santa Baby,” and “Nothing From Nothing” by Billy Preston always makes me want to boogie!


How The Grinch Stole Christmas:  There are actually a lot of artists on the Grinch Soundtrack that I just never expected–people like Ben Folds, BareNaked Ladies, and Busta Rhymes to name a few.  Of course, Faith Hill’s “Where Are You Christmas?” reminds us not to forget our inner child and who doesn’t love to sing about that “foul one, Mr. Grinch”?!?

 

Wish List:  

Angels Sing:  Music From The Motion Picture:  There is such a huge variety of music on this soundtrack.  It’s a little disappointing that Harry Connick, Jr. only has one song on the whole album, but he has a bunch of his own, so I guess it’s not necessary.  I do so love the Trishas though.  And Lyle Lovett ain’t half bad!

 

The Muppets Christmas Carol Soundtrack:  I know, I know.  They are muppets.  But they are THE Muppets.  Enough said!

 

Now it’s your turn.  What are your favorite Christmas movie soundtracks?
