Padre Steve’s Rockin’ Christmas: Music for Anyone to Get into the Spirit of the Season

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,
Today was my last day at work before a five day break, at least one day of which was granted by President Obama, blessed be his name. But anyway… music is a special part of Christmas for me and not all of it is about sacred Christian music. I like rock, pop, soul, blues, jazz and even country music with a Christmas or holiday theme. I hope that all the links still work on this post, but if enough of them do you should be able to enjoy a bit of a rocking’ Christmas Eve tomorrow. But that being said I have been really busy doing a lot of editing and work on my Gettysburg text which will continue throughout the weekend as I rework yet another chapter. Expect that I will post a couple of sections of new material for my first chapter dealing with the beginnings of Women’s rights and women in the military as well as developments in naval technology that still influence us today.
Peace and Happy Festivus,
Padre Steve+

One genre where Christmas music has found a home for the last 60 years or so has been Rock and Roll. I think a great bridge between the more traditional and the contemporary is the duet of Little Drummer Boy between Bing Crosby and David Bowie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiXjbI3kRus

Of course this is in no way an exhaustive list of these songs, just some plucked from memory that I could find music videos of and which I might not have already done on past years articles. I think that some of these are on multiple posts but still, they struck me tonight.

I usually listen to 60s, 70s or 80‘s music whenever I drive…
