Album Review: Holiday Wishes by Idina Menzel

It's November which means holiday albums are coming out from many artists. Idina Menzel is a Broadway star. You might know her from Rent or Wicked. And unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard her voice many times singing "Let it Go" from Frozen.

I first heard about Holiday Wishes when the music video (embedded below) for Baby It's Cold Outside went viral because of the cute kids. The album version of the song is not as modified as the video version but the song still sounds amazing.

Many of the classics on Menzel's album have a jazz edge to them. It's nice because while they're the same old songs we hear every year, they have a fresh sound. My favorite classic on the album is Menzel's version of All I Want For Christmas Is You. I also like that she included When You Wish Upon A Star which isn't normally considered a holiday tune.

There is one original song, December Prayer, on the album. It's a very simple song with minimal instrumental sounds behind. I could clearly hear piano, harp, and oboe before more instruments filled the chords and bass. The lyrics are touching and while I don't see it reaching the "classic" level of other holiday music, I think it's a wonderful song that will touch everyone's heart.
Hear the song within the silence,
See the beauty when there's nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence that hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence a December Prayer,
A December Prayer. (Source: Metro Lyrics)

Black Friday is Coming Soon

This repost is about Black Friday.

If you are a saver like me, then you know the best day of the year is almost here. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is coming. This means a few things including great deals and large crowds. As I find good deals, I'll be posting them here. I will only be posting deals that have been officially released by the stores. In the mean time, check out some of my favorite sites for annual ad leaks. Remember that these leaks are not 100% correct which is why I do not share the deals until I know they are true.

Another thing to consider is that many stores will be opening on Thanksgiving this year. I will not be shopping on Thanksgiving but if I see good deals, I will post about them. Enjoy!
