All Hail Hall & Oates!

Yes, they are one of America’s musical treasures, and this holiday season it’s time to celebrate their classic Christmas album!

Hall and Oates Home For Christmas

“Home For Christmas”

“Home For Christmas” is Daryl Hall & John Oates’ first full length album of Christmas music. It was released in 2006, and it a beautiful collection of new and timeless Christmas music…

And speaking of classic holiday music, we must never forget this classic from Macy Grey…

Macy Grey??!?!?!?!?

Yes! Alex and I have enjoyed Macy’s classic holiday song for years! Her brilliant song “I Try” CLEARLY ends with a holiday greeting – and we can prove it! Just watch the music video and at precisely 3:11 into the song, you can clearly hear her shouting out “Santa Claus!”

Let me know if you also shout out “Santa Claus” along with Macy Grey on her legendary song…and if you are now in the holiday mood, then time to plug in your Christmas lights and get lit up yourself!

  1. I really enjoyed that selection …. I’d never heard Hall and Oates performing those songs so it was a real treat. The Macy Gray song is one of my all time favourites and yes, she does appear to be shouting Santa Claus at 3:11. As a point of interest the town featured in the slide show is Annecy which is a short drive from my home. If you have never visited it, you really should next time the two of you find yourselves in France. Pretty doesn’t cover it 😊

  2. Trust Hall and Oates to come up with the goods!
    Have a great time with Alex and your family, John.
    Best wishes as always from England, Pete.

  3. I usually listen to Holiday Jazz to relax me and get in the spirit of the season. But I do love Hall and Oates–love that t-shirt! Merry Christmas, John. 🙂
