What are You Listening to This Holiday Season?

Let's face it: everybody has their choice of Christmas music during this time of the year.

For my godmother, for example, it has always been her collection of Jose Mari Chan christmas songs. For my friend Elle, it has always been the soundtrack of Nightmare Before Christmas. For my older sister, it has always been whatever-the-heck-she-feels-like-listening-to. Rebellion runs in the family.

For me, however, it has always been Michael Buble.

Okay, maybe not always, seeing as he hasn't been around for forever (plus, I used to have a thing for Josh Groban during the holidays!). But, for the past couple of years, all I can remember about the holiday season is lying on the floor and listening to this sexy crooner sing me to heaven:


Unfortunately, as much as I love Michael Buble, I don't actually have his "Christmas" album yet. So, when I found out that Warner Music Philippines was releasing a repackaged version of it before the holidays, I freaked!

The repackaged album has been out since November 25 and I can't wait to get my hands on it. In case you haven't heard any of Michael Buble's Christmas songs yet, he sings It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, White Christmas, and All I Want for Christmas is You, among others.

He also sings my favorite Christmas song of all time: Santa Baby. <3

Michael Buble's Christmas album isn't the only CD I can't wait to get my hands on this Christmas, though. "Unorthodox Jukebox" by Bruno Mars will be out on December 11:


I don't know about you, but I was a huge fan of his first album, "Doo-Wops and Hooligans". In fact, it was the soundtrack of my 2010/2011 Bangkok visit, so I cannot wait to find out whether I will fall in love with the new album the way I did with the previous one.

Here's a preview of it, Bruno Mars' official video for "Locked Out of Heaven":

The best part is that you can get a whole set of freebies, including a fedora hat, a Bruno Mars CD single and button pins if you buy the album at Astroplus from December 11 to December 15! Awesomesauce!

What do you think? Will this new album live up to the old Bruno Mars' album?

Also, what albums are you looking forward to buying or listening to this holiday season? :) Do share! I'm always up for discovering new music!

Both of the aforementioned albums will be distributed by Warner Music Philippines and will be available at all Astroplus branches.

  1. I grew up listening to Jose Mari Chan's, the Jackson 5's and the Chipmunks' Christmas albums. So they're still my Christmas music of choice. =)
