I’m not much of a music person.
I own a total of two CDs. I rarely listen to either.
I don’t own an iPod or any other MP3 player. If I did, I’d fill it with books on tape (or books on MP3), not music.
But our kids love music. (They get it from Marathon Girl.) Lately I call home to chat with Marathon Girl from work I hear Christmas music from the radio in the background and hear the excited laughs of my kids as they dance to it.
So while doing some Christmas shopping for Marathon Girl the other night I decided to swing by the music section and see if I could find a CD that had a good compilation of holiday music by various artists that the kids could dance to.
Much to my surprise, there wants’ a single compilation CD to be found. There were lots of holiday CDs by every musician under the sun. But no compliations.
I guess the easiest way to do it would be to find the songs on iTunes or Amazon, buy them, then burn them to CD. But since my musical knowledge is limited, I’d have no idea which songs are good and bad and I don’t have time to figure it out.
In the meantime, my kids don’t seem to mind listening to the radio and the one Christmas CD we have though I think Marathon Girl would appreciate something new. If anyone has any suggestions, give me a shout out below. There’s still six shopping days ‘till Christmas.
