Jingle All the Ways 3.10 – Ten Hour Mix of Jingle Bells

Jingle All the Ways 3.10 - Ten Hours of Jingle Bells

I’ve posted several Jingle All The Ways mixes here at FaLaLaLaLa, but for my 10th Christmas season on the internet I thought I’d take it a bit further….

And so I created a 10 hour long Spotify mix of nothing but versions of Jingle Bells, 220 of them to be exact. There’s a bit of everything, so be prepared (though there’s no barking dogs or meowing cats or farting or Mannheim Steamroller…). This is not a random mix. Each version was selected by me. Some are played straight, some are out of left field.

Go on and listen. No, really, I dare you to. Can you get through all 10 hours…? Share it with your friends (or enemies) and see if they can do it.*

Not recommended for Grinches, Misers, or other Christmas hating beings.)

AiC 2013 – Dec. 14 – Bert Kaempfert and His Orchestra – The Little Drummer Boy

 

For the ADVENTure in Carols I like to throw on unfamiliar Christmas songs, but I think a Christmas music mix has to have some familiar songs to help you connect to the traditions inherent in the season. However, I do like to find versions of familiar songs that may not be ones you’ve heard.

I hope that this is one, The Little Drummer Boy by Bert Kaempfert and His Orchestra, from the 1963 album “Christmas Wonderland”.
