I LOVE American Idol. Something about watching these kids grow (or try to) their talent as well as their confidence in performing, makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. While I do not run out and buy their CD's, I do enjoy hearing their songs on the radio and often buy individual tracks on-line to listen to while I'm blogging or cooking dinner.
I also enjoy Holiday music, when it's appropriate. My favorite (well, not right now) radio station started playing Christmas music 24/7 the day after Halloween. What? That's a little early in my book so the station is banned from my listening. They were also playing all the "old" stuff, which made it even more annoying.
While searching for "new" holiday music, I came across Shop.com's Music Shop. You can purchase your favorite CD's at the best prices, as wel las listen to full tracks of newly released songs. I've been listening to Elliot Yamin's Warm Me Up, from his My Kind of Holiday CD all morning and am getting in the Holiday spirit. They also currently have tracks from George Strait, Josh Groban, Seal and many others. While their play list is small, they swap it up all the time to spotlight different artists and songs. I'll be checking back to see what songs I can add to my Holiday playlist. Check it out!
