A Note on Holiday Music


     Christmas of 2014 has now come and gone, and tomorrow is New Year's Eve. Top Notch would like to take this moment and simply thank the business's which allowed me to DJ their corporate Christmas parties this holiday season. Immediately after Thanksgiving, the DJ business was truly swamped with holiday parties until the week of Christmas. Thank you all for allowing Top Notch the opportunity to provide entertainment at your events. One key element Top Notch strived for this year, was to avoid playing ONLY the classic Holiday songs at each event. Although I realize the famous holiday tunes sung by Bing Crosby, Burl Ives, Sinatra, etc. are expected during the holiday times, Top Notch has made it a point in recent years to include lively, upbeat, and enjoyable holiday themed songs in hopes that it will pick up party attendees spirits as well as boost the energy at each party/event. Since December 1, Top Notch has shared a song each day that I felt fits this description and that is played at most Top Notch holiday/Christmas events. All songs are posted in order as they were shared below as a recap. Additionally, all readers are more than welcome to gather any of the song selections listed for their personal music collection. Thanks again for an entertaining December guys as well as following Top Notch on facebook.
