Last Week in Free MP3s 12-28

Although Christmas day has come and gone there is still time to download some of these free mp3 holiday songs.

“Christmas With a Monkey” – Various Artists from A Very Monkey Christmas

Despite the title and lyrics the melody is a sophisticated jazz-like multilayered tune. One wishes the words were not a part of the track.

“Joy to the World” – Lee Greenwood

Remember “God Bless the U.S.A.?” Every time you hear that song it brings on feelings of patriotism. Having said that, skip this rendition of “Joy to the World.” You have better covers of this tune already at your disposal.

“I Celebrate the Day” – Relient K

The uplifting lyrics do not match the morose melody that accompanies them. Are we celebrating the birth of Christ or are we in mourning for his being nailed to a cross? Relient K needs to make up their minds.

“It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” – MercyMe

MercyMe does a fine rendition of this seldom covered track. It has a rocking quality where you won’t be embarrassed to listen to this song in the middle of March.

“Toy Packaging” – Sara Groves

This song is for anyone who has been defeated in their ability to open a toy for a child on Christmas day. It seems that they make it extra difficult at this time of year. As Groves attempts to “extricate this robot man” from its package the listener is left with the feeling that they are not alone in their cursing ongoing battle. It’s a fun track that can be played on any holiday that offers presents for children.

“I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” – Casting Crowns

Amazing track. Casting Crowns covers this song with a harmonious children’s choir and a solid, melodic rock beat. Regardless of the time of year this tune should definitely be on your mp3 player.
