Christmas Movie Soundtrack Playlist for Monday Melodies
We are so glad that you enjoyed our first Christmas music playlist, so we created another one for you. Today, we bring you Christmas music from several Christmas movie soundtracks including: Bad Santa, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Scrooged, Elf, Santa Clause 2, Christmas with the Kranks and more!
Did you know that many of the same, popular Christmas songs are played in different soundtracks? Or that non-Christmas carols and even rock music are sometimes used to accentuate different parts in the movie, like in Jack Frost? While researching the Christmas movies for this post, we even found that some soundtracks were either one hundred percent original (i.e. composed just for that movie), a mixture of new compositions and old, or just renditions of other classical pieces. You’ll hear a few classical pieces in this Christmas movie playlist from Tchaikovsky; his music has appeared in Bad Santa, Prancer Returns, Nutcracker and A Christmas Story. (And those were just the holiday films we were researching!
You’ll also notice that there are more than a few songs that are geared for kids. In this christmas soundtrack playlist, enjoy songs from The Muppet Christmas Carol and the John Denver and The Muppets: A Christmas Together holiday special, right along with A Charlie Brown Christmas and the ever-popular Polar Express, too.
Thanks for tuning in today for our Monday Melodies! Watch for a post listing several of the Christmas movies we have sheet music for later this week!
