Music Monday: Hanson Snowed In

While the other reviews for this month are more recent Christmas releases – this is what I have to consider a “classic” release – Hanson’s Christmas CD released “waaay” back in 1998.



Merry Christmas Baby
What Christmas Means to Me
Little Saint Nick
At Christmas
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Christmas Time
Everybody Knows the Claus

 Snowed In is a classic for me.  In fact, a few years back a few friends and I decided to make it a tradition to listen to it at midnight after Halloween.  (It helped that at the time we were leaving a Hanson Halloween concert in Oklahoma and figured it would be appropriate to listen to on the way home)  To me, this album and the songs will never get old – even if Hanson’s voices have changed and it can be a bit painful to listen to at times. (Sorry Zac.)  The CD has 3 original songs – At Christmas, Christmas Time and Everybody Knows the Claus. And while every year I hold out that they will release a new Christmas CD (they’ve released a couple Christmas songs over the past few years and are doing a Christmas streaming special this year so we may be getting another track or two, I hope) I don’t think that Snowed In will never make its way out of rotation.  (And don’t tell my iPod but I also get a kick out of it when it’s the middle of summer and it plays like 3 or 4 tracks from this CD in a row when I’m heading home from a road trip!)
