It is that time of year when there is Christmas music filling the air everywhere. In a previous blog I told the story of the little girl who before Thanksgiving was in the Christmas spirt but she was confused on the words for Jingle Bells. She sang Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Jingle Bells over and over again, it was so cute but I bet Mom was ready to pull her hair own hair out.
I must admit I love Christmas music, well like it is probably more truthful. I do get a little tired of hearing the same songs over and over again but by different recording stars. Now before you start calling me a Scrooge here is what I mean. According to the music licensing company Music Reports, there ARE 137,315 recorded versions of “Silent Night”! Of course, “Silent Night” isn’t the only holiday song that’s been recorded to death.
Here are the Top 10 most-recorded holiday songs, according to Music Reports:
- “Silent Night”, recorded 137,315 times
