As I’ve written in past years, I’m a big fan of holiday music. This past weekend I loaded my Zune and iPod Nano up with my collection of 640+ holiday songs.
And I’m an even bigger fan of free holiday music. I’ve downloaded the music listed below and haven’t had time yet to listen to it but many of the songs are traditional songs by new artists, so you’ve really got nothing to lose. I’m always looking for a new non-traditional favorite to enjoy.
- Amazon is featuring their 25 Days of Free Holiday Songs which kicked off yesterday with 5 songs, including Silent Night by Erasure and Fool’s Holiday by All Time Low. Amazon releases 5 new songs every 5 days.
- Paste Magazine has their annual holiday sampler which you can download for free, but in the spirit of the season you may want to leave a “tip” which will be donated to Charity Water. This collection features songs by Sufjan Stevens, David Mayfield Parade and The Last Parade.
- Joe Bonamassa is offering up his the new Christmas Date Blues on his website.
- Sleeping at Last has their Christmas Collection 2013 album on Noisetrade. Again, tips are encouraged but not required.
Do you know of other holiday music that’s free or inexpensive?
