My Own Christmas from the Heart Playlist


First, thanks, Valbraz, for giving me the idea to rearrange the order of the songs on Christmas from the Heart.  I highlighted the songs in my video, “Pat-a-Pan,” “Riu Riu Chiu,” “What Child is This,” and “Joy to the Word,” as the opening tracks, then reassembled the other songs.  It sounds heavenly (JMHO and all that).  Just thought to share since I did the same thing with David’s debut album.  Here is the new order on my playlist:

1. Pat-a-Pan

2. Riu Riu Chiu

3. What Child is This

4. Joy to the World

5. O Holy Night

6. Ave Maria

7. I’ll Be Home for Christmas

8. Silent Night

9. Angels We Have Heard on High

10. The First Noel

11.  Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

12. O Come All Ye Faithful

13. Melodies of Christmas

What this new ordering does is give David’s most original songs a chance to shine and, hence, set the tone for the rest of the album.  Also, I tried to break up the church-heavy carols and intersperse them with the more personal carols.  Honestly, this playlist and the original both work wonders, and Melodies of Christmas sounds like the kind of song that needs to close the album, hence why it’s the last song on both my playlists.

Anyway, the new playlist is worth a listen. 🙂
