Christmas Music in the Music Collection

After a long semester and seemingly endless Finals Week you may want to kick back with some holiday music.  For compact discs to check out, go to CardCat's advanced search, select "Compact Discs, audio" as the format, and then type the holiday of your choice.  The Music Collection has over 250 CDs of Christmas music and several CDs of music for Hannukah and Solstice celebrations.

For something different, try out these non-traditional Christmas selections:
Christmas Comes Alive, by the Brian Setzer Orchestra
A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector
A Soulful Christmas, with classic R&B artists
The Temptations Christmas Card
This is Christmas, Luther Vandross
December, by the Moody Blues
A Smooth Jazz Christmas, by Dave Koz and friends
A Motown Christmas
Nuncrackers, the Nunsense Christmas Musical
Merry Texas Christmas, y'all, by Asleep at the Wheel
Christmas Island, by Jimmy Buffett
Merry Christmas, by Mariah Carey
Billboard Greatest Christmas Hits, 1955-1989
Dr. Demento Presents the Greatest Christmas Novelty CD of All-Time

If you are already out of town, you can use your Ball State username and password to listen to Naxos Music Library's Christmas music playlist, a selection of classic and classical Christmas favorites.  (Log-in with Ball State user ID and password required off-campus)
