Soundwaves: This week's music reviews

Want to know why "Jingle Bells" remains a biggie during the holidays? Catch the classic by Johnny Mercer with words you can understand, a big sense of fun and lots of bells. Twelve of these 13 tracks feature traditional favorites that are sure to start a party, even if you happen to be listening by yourself.

Elvis Presley lets us know that "Santa Claus is Back in Town" while Doris Day unleashes all of her considerable vocal charm for "Here Comes Santa Claus ("Right down Santa Claus Lane"). Russ Morgan & His Orchestra then steps up with a frisky "I Want You For Christmas."

Sinead O'Connor reminds us what Christmas is all about with her haunting rendition of "Silent Night." Peter Gabriel accompanies on keyboards. Beauty! These tunes are almost too familiar, but chances are you've never heard them so clearly, especially the older numbers. Each track sounds polished and fresh. A suite of original music from Christophe Beck, the 13th track, reminds us that this is a soundtrack. Right... Start it up again!
