Modern Christmas #MusicMovesMe

It's the first Monday of December, and it's time for music!

Who are the Music Moves Me bloggers? We are bloggers who blog about music each Sunday or Monday and if you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only-meaning at least one music video, please!)   Our head hostess is Cathy from Curious as a Cathy,  and she is joined by the knowledgeable Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and (last but not least) me.

Why not join our music loving folks?  It's so easy. All you have to do is join the linky above with a music post that contains at least one music video (if no music video, the post may be removed, or may be labeled *NO MUSIC*) and you've just joined a group of cool music lovers.  Why not? 

Each month, we have a guest host.  For December, our honorary host is Santa Claus.  Santa wants us to post holiday music so we can all dance and have a good time.  (I don't think Santa will mind me, next week, posting Hanukkah themed songs for our singing and dancing enjoyment).

For today, I decided to post some modern songs about Christmas.  Some of these are covers of well loved songs which I am enjoying.

This first song is an instant earworm for me.  Since I can't get it out of my ear, I thought I would share it with you.   Here is Last Christmas - Wham!, from 1984.

Happy Xmas (War is Over) - this cover by Miley Cyrus, Mark Ronson ft. Sean Ono Lennon (John Lennon's son) is a worthy cover to this John Lennon/Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono band 1971 classic. 

José Feliciano and his classic Feliz Navidad, from 1970.

Lindsay Lohan's 2022 cover of Jingle Bell Rock has such a cute video.

The Offspring (The Offspring!) and their 2022 cover of Bells Will Be Ringing (Please Come Home for Christmas).

Finally, Meghen Trainor and Pentatonix with Kid on Christmas.  This 2022 release is so catchy, I will be surprised if it doesn't become a hit.

And that's a wrap! 

Join me again next week for more Music Moves Me.


  1. José Feliciano is legendary! The music is fantastic

  2. ...there are many who should never do Christmas music.

  3. Good morning, Alana! In recent years I've come to enjoy modern Christmas tunes more and more. Lindsey Lohan is someone I don't think about too much. It's nice when her songs put up. The Offsprings did a fabulous cover of "Bells Will Be Ringing" and I think you're right Pentatonix & Meghen Trainor's new Christmas song release probably will be a hit with its cherry upbeat vibe. It's great to boogie with you at the start of the day, my ear. Let the holiday music carry you through the week, my dear.

  4. Interesting choices today. I love pentatonix

  5. Miley Cyrus has always had a nice voice, and now that she's older she really sounds great. Nice picks!

  6. All favourites! Loved the Lindsay Lohan video! And that Pentatonix song is awesome!

  7. So, I remember Jose Feliciano's songs- since I saw him in person a few times. As a matter of fact, I recognized every one of these tunes except for the last via Ms. Trainor.
    But. except for Feliciano, I'm not sure I could have suggested any one of them without your prompt.
    Thanks for the memories.
