Christmas MP3 Madness, aka, free-and-legal falalalala-lalalala, Rosie Thomas to Mannheim Steamroller to Lady Gaga!

Amazon is flooding us with great free Christmas music, so rather than listing it all I'll just give you a few of my favorites and then let you take it from there. I'd recommend starting with downloads of:
Rosie Thomas with "Why Can't it Be Christmastime All Year",
Sixpence None the Richer with "Silent Night",
Leigh Nash with "Wishing for This",
Jars of Clay with "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen",
Frank Sinatra with "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear",
Mannheim Steamroller with "Pat A Pan",
Tori Amos with "Snow Angel",
Point of Grace with "Winter Wonderland", and
Lady Gaga with "Christmas Tree"
(Seeeeee I told you it was a flood of great music... or at least entertaining, in the case of the last track. ;P) From there, just scroll down a bit on whatever page you're on, until you see the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" box. Use the arrows to flip through and find a ton more free holiday downloads. Note that this is the box under "Customers Who Bought This Item's Album Also Bought," because those are full album referrals, and hence full cost too.

Also be sure to check out Amazon's 25 Days of Free page too, for a new Christmas MP3 daily.

Then snag an acappella track of Tonic Sol-Fa singing "On This Christmas Night", courtesy of Blue Bunny ice cream.

Courtesy of Blondie, we also have a great rocked-out (but not toooo rocked-out) version of "We Three Kings". If they're done just right, revamps of Christmas carols like this often turn into favorites for me.

For more of what 3hive calls "more or less Christmas music," check out their 3some: Xmas 2009 post for 11 really great, unique seasonal MP3s. These are Must Haves, I promise!! But if you're afraid of commitment when downloading artists you don't know, you can use their handy music player to stream the tracks before you download. And you will download, I'm pretty sure, when you hear how great they are. ;)

iTunes is worth checking out right now too! There's an upbeat, sprightly Christmas tune from none other than Bob Dylan, and an awesome (non-holiday) music video from Beck and Charlotte Gainsbourg, and the other weekly freebies are fairly decent as well.

Have fun, and happy holidays!
