Steve's 25 Days of Christmas Music 2013

Steve's 25 Days of Christmas Music 2013

Returning for our 13th season, I'm excited to once again be sharing Steve's 25 Days of Christmas Music with you.

This year's theme is LIVE!

Our collection features live Christmas music performances from various artists, sourced from concerts, radio broadcasts, television specials, and other recordings. If the artist performed in front of an audience, we considered it for this lineup. Ranging in dates from 1941 through 2013, I think you'll discover an interesting array of "in the moment" experiences. This is an enjoyable mix of music!

For the first time, I'm offering this collection of 25 Days as a download with ALL THE SONGS right away. Yup, you read that correctly! Why?

  1. Equal Exposure – Based on data from previous years, a lot of listeners download music during the first couple weeks of December, but then don't bother with the rest of the month. Those songs in the December 15-25 range don't get as much exposure, which is unfortunate. By providing you with all the music at once, each of my hand-picked songs gets a chance at some listener love!
  2. Theme Experience – I attempted to group songs with similar styles and themes together in the playlist, so they have a natural flow like a live concert. Grab 'em all at once and see what I'm talking about!
  3. Sanity – It takes a lot of work to come up with a theme, find 25 songs, edit the music, write informational post, upload files, and coordinate all the moving pieces of Steve's 25 Days of Christmas Music each year. Last year, I promised myself a more relaxing December. Thus, using this "all at once" strategy, you still get the music you want, but I also get to enjoy one of my favorite times of the year

Visit the TannerWorld Junction discussion forums to download all the songs from this year's collection!

If you still prefer the "1 song per day" style of previous 25 Days events, you'll be happy to know that I've also posted each song individually, with a short description and download link. So if you'd like, just visit the link above every day from December 1-25 and download the corresponding song for the date.

Thanks for your interest in my 25 Days each year… I hope you enjoy this new LIVE! collection!
