Christmas music 101

To say the advent of digital music has changed the way we buy and listen to albums is an understatement. (Do people even call them albums anymore?) We buy one song here, another song there… Who listens to an entire album from start to finish anymore?

Why does that matter? Because it means that some people do not know the correct way to listen to the all-time best Christmas music album of all time, Amy Grant’s first Christmas album. And that, my friends, is a real problem.

The album has three songs that, in order to be fully appreciated, should be listened to back-to-back. Start with Preist dem Koing, then move right into Emmanuel, and then to Little Town - tracks 3, 4, and 5, in order and without stopping. Do. Not. Stop. The. Songs. And you will have seven minutes of the most perfect Christmas music.

No need to thank me. Your enjoyment of the music will be thanks enough.
