Sick of “Jingle Bells”? In the mood for some new holiday tunes? Check these out:

Marah “New York is a Christmas Kind of Town” takes all the joy and happiness of the holidays and wraps it up in three snappy, bouncy minutes.

Jody Watley The “Looking for a New Love” singer has recorded a luscious new version of the classic “Christmas Time Is Here.” (It automatically plays when you go to her site.)

A Rubber Band Christmas Yep, all the songs are played on rubber bands. I’m addicted to “Deck the Halls with Rubber” since it reminds me of the Fat Albert theme song.

Gayla Peevey “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,” while actually released in 1953, reminds us of what Christmas is about: asking for things we’ll never actually get. Bah!
