Christmas Eve #MusicMovesMe

Welcome! It's Monday and time for another episode of Music Moves Me.  And it's also Christmas Eve, so of course this post will be all Christmas music.

Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are bloggers (and perhaps also musical elves) who blog about music each Monday and if you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only on this music train, please!)   First, there is XmasDolly,   Her co-conductors are:  Callie of JAmerican Spice,  and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥   Also, co-conducting  is  Cathy from Curious as a Cathy .  And finally, there's me. 

To set the mood, a clip of a childhood memory from my growing up in New York City in the 50's and 60's:  the WPIX YuleLog. (and no, you don't have to listen to all two hours).  On Christmas Eve, WPIX (then an independent station on channel 11) would preempt programming and bring you a clip of a log burning at the Mayor's residence (Gracie Mansion) with Christmas carols playing in the background. Enjoy!

I love a group called Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and would like to bring you some of their music for this Christmas Eve.

The Lost Christmas Eve, from the album (their fourth) of the same name.

Christmas Eve/Sarajevo, the song that introduced me to this group.

And finally, first, a warning that if you suffer from seizures, you might not want to watch this next video. 

Although it doesn't mention Christmas Eve, this song has been used so many times by people who set their house Christmas decorations to music, that I couldn't resist one of those videos.

My final selection is  "What Child is This", possibly my favorite of all their songs.  The power of this song is amazing.

To all my Christian readers, may you all have the happiest of Christmases, one full of happiness - and music.


  1. Saw them a Nassau Coliseum a few Christmases ago. Love their music.

  2. You might not be Christian, but there's a whole side to Christmas that's all about music, laughter and food. May you enjoy that tomorrow!

  3. Beautiful songs. Thanks for sharing them. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  5. Alana,

    I'm late!!! Gee, I"m SO sorry, dear friend! How was your Christmas? I hope it was the best one yet. Trans-Siberian Orchestra adds spice to the dance floor this holiday season. They put a lot of fun into Christmas with their rock covers of the classics. The year is rapidly winding down. Thank you for sharing 2018 with me. I pray God bestows good blessings on you and yours this day and throughout the coming New Year, my friend.

  6. Thanks for reminding me I hadn't visited my 4M music friends. TW grew up with that PIX Yule Log. It would be on as she opened her presents. Hope your Christmas was merry and bright.
