ITunes is giving a way a CD sampler of 20 ‘holiday’ songs absolutely free. I resisted Amazon’s offer of 99 tracks for $5, but this one I had to go for. Obviously, when someone else is choosing the tracks, there will be winners and losers. In the latter category I’d put Rascal Flatts singing “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen”. But Sarah Mclachlan’s rendition of “Silent Night” is a very beautiful thing and, we might add, worth more than the price of the collection! And Weezer doing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, well, you have to hear it. There is some good and interesting stuff here. Christmas music stuff.
UPDATE: Okay, so now I’ve heard the whole thing, there may be no more than two or three you will listen to a second time, but hey, it’s free!
