Confession: I’m that person that drives by you in the middle of the day with music blaring, base pumping….in a minivan.
Yes, I am very cool.
I can’t help it – the louder it is the more it drowns out the children. I mean, loud music makes me happy.
So with that, how about some gift ideas for the music lovers in your life.
For Holiday Music Lovers:
Eleanor McCain – Holiday
Eleanor McCain is a Canadian singer with a lovely, angelic voice. Her latest album celebrates the holidays with 19 traditional songs, some up-tempo and some more intimate. This is a perfect cd for the season!
For Your Tween:
One Direction – Take Me Home
These boys are adorable and their songs are so fun and poppy and the kids love them. Their new cd, Take Me Home, is on my kids’ list this year.
For Your Best Girlfriend:
Mumford & Sons – Babel
I love Mumford & Sons – this cd is guaranteed to be a hit with anyone you gift it to, including your bestie.
For Classical Music Fans:
Jonathan & Charlotte – Together
If you have spent anytime online you will recognize Jonathan & Charlotte from their audition video from Britain’s Got Talent on YouTube (it received over 26 million hits). Although they came second, they got a recording contract with Simon Cowell and their new CD has been released. It is just fantastic!!
For Fifty Shades Fans:
Fifty Shades of Grey: The Classical Album
Did you read these books? I’m pretty sure everyone and their mother read these books. If you did, you may remember the many classical music references and if you thought, oh how I wish these were all compiled into a dvd for my listening pleasure, you have been heard!
For Those Who Like To Boogie
Kesha – Warrior, Rihanna – Unapologetic, Green Day – Tre!
To continue the holiday spirit of giving, I’m giving away FIVE copies of Eleanor McCain’s Holiday CDs!!
Eleanor McCain is “a classical crossover artist. My song choices draw from classical, celtic, folk, pop and jazz genres – My hope is that the experience is intimate, poignant and filled with an emotion that is genuine and wonderfully human.” Eleanor has four CDs available for purchase which you can find here, and right now, with every Eleanor McCain CD purchased online, Eleanor will donate 10% to Hospice Toronto.
