2010: The Year of the Christmas Song!

Posted by Todd

I'm intrigued by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I love their gritty, unconventional renditions of Christmas song medleys.  And though  they try to "bust out" of the Christmas Band label, it doesn't appear to be working. Bummer for them, but that makes me interested to make some of my own arrangements of Christmas songs and "contemporize" them.

As I ramp up on my guitar practice and poise my pen to make a new arrangement of O Come All Ye Faithful, it causes me pause and ask, "Which Christmas song are you interested in hearing in a more contemporary fashion?"

Or, "What's your favorite Christmas song of all time?" Please post your comments! I can't wait to hear what you have to say.
