-Bob Marley, "Trenchtown Rock"
Since this is the last Monday before many of our holiday festivities begin, this will be my last Christmas contribution to Monday's Music Moves Me over at Christmas Dolly's.

Now, I give you my favorite Christmas song ever......
Yep! I love Elvis's sultry voice and twangy guitar on this one. And who doesn't love Elvis?
Last week, I did a bunch of different versions of "Run Run Rudolph" and I promise I won't do that this week! But I'd be remiss if I didn't include Georgia rockers Collective Soul's rendition of this song, too.
You see, sometime in the late 90s I signed up for Columbia House (anyone remember THAT?) and I often forgot to send the cards back to decline that month's featured CD. This meant that I ended up with a lot of accidental additions to my music collection because I was also bad at not returning the packages before my kids, young boys at the time, would excitedly open them! One of those CDs was You Sleigh Me, which featured Collective Soul's cover of my favorite Christmas song ever. It is quite the departure from the sound of Elvis and many others who've recorded/performed this.
And as a non-Christmas-related bonus, here's "Trenchtown Rock" from Bob Marley, the song and artist referenced earlier in this post:
Have yourself a great week, and a Merry Little Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or whichever other holiday you may celebrate if this is your last trip here before the holidays. And if you don't celebrate a holiday this time of year, I wish you the best and hope you get to spend precious time iwth your family and/or friends.
