Before I head out for the holidays, I wanted to recommend two holiday tunes for the season.
The first is Katy Perry's "Cozy Little Christmas," which she released as an Amazon Original. The kitschy, sweet tune has a pleasing melody and catchy hook. It's the kind of song Perry has mastered--a mix kooky humor and romance--and a return to form for the pop diva. "Cozy" makes you want her to record an entire holiday record. After a decade in the business, it's the perfect time for her to consider such a project. Check the song out on Amazon.
I'm also infatuated with the Jolly Remix of Leann Rimes' "Joy" medley, most notably featuring her take on "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." The tune is the perfect mix of holiday cheese and hopefulness. In fact, "Joy" is the ideal title for the track because it is downright joyful. I recommend her entire 2018 holiday record. Don't be discouraged that it's a soundtrack for Rimes' Hallmark holiday film, It's Christmas, Eve; the album is a fun and consistent set of holiday tunes.
In the spirit of the season, I wish you happy holidays, dear reader. May you find lots of warmth, joy, and peace. See you in the new year.
