A Very Jersey Christmas! – Spotify playlist

Jason Didner from the Jungle Gym Jam welcomes Santa to The Outlets at Bergen Town CenterAn article in the Asbury Park Press by the paper’s chief music critic Chris Jordan gave me a great idea. He listed New Jersey’s Top 10 Christmas Songs of All Time. Most of those tracks were unfamiliar to me, but I totally agreed with his #1 pick: “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band!

So I set out to create a Spotify playlist that contained as many of those listed songs as I could find in the catalog. Then I added my own entry, “Summertime Santa,” those of my fellow NJ children’s musicians, and some by the Garden State’s notable rockers – both household names and local heroes – and jazz artists.

Please leave a comment if there’s more NJ holiday music I should know about (in the Spotify library)!

Musically yours,

      Nice stuff Jack! I hear a little Sinatra influence over that smooth jazz backing–a combination I can’t recall having heard before. Added to the playlist! Please share with your fans!
