The Seven Lives of May Levesque: A Holiday Playlist

I love listening to music while writing. On that note, I love listening to music – period! I have digital music, CDs, and even a record player with new and old records from days gone by. I appreciate the crisp quality of digital and CD, but also love the crackle and static sounds that emanate from a record.

Right now, the big hot ticket item in my house is Christmas music.

Below is the playlist to accompany The Seven Lives of May Levesque, a Christmas romance and faerie tale:

  1. Carol of the Bells/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Joshua Messick
  2. Greensleeves – James Galway
  3. Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas – The Boston Pops Orchestra
  4. A Christmas Festival – Leonard Slatkin
  5. The Bells of Christmas – Loreena McKennitt
  6. Comfort and Joy – Michael Convertino
  7. I Saw Three Ships – Blackmore’s Night
  8. The Bells of Dublin/Christmas Eve – The Chieftains
  9. Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) – Darlene Love
  10. Carol of the Bells – Nox Arcana
  11. Good King Wenceslas – Mormon Tabernacle Choir
  12. Caroling, Caroling – Nat King Cole
  13. Lord of the Dance/Simple Gifts – Blackmore’s Night
  14. The Wren in the Furze – Kevin Conneff and The Chieftains
  15. Magic and Moonlight – Nox Arcana
  16. Main Title from Home Alone – John Williams
  17. We Wish you the Merriest – Frank Sinatra
  18. Happy Holidays – Bing Crosby
  19. I Saw Three Ships a Sailing – The Chieftains

You can hear a lot of these songs by listening to the Celtic Christmas Radio station or the Traditional Christmas Radio station – both on Pandora.

Side note: Do I celebrate Christmas? Yes! But I also believe it should be called Yule (Winter Solstice) due to its pagan roots. I love learning about other traditions around this time of year. Whether it be Kwanza, Chanukah, Rohatsu (Bodhi Day), Posadas Navidenas, or any other celebration of a special event around the shortest day of the year, I’m appreciative of it and what it brings to cultures around the world.
