Tig Tunes with Michael Bublé

About a month ago, I had the pleasure of having dinner with a group of friends (courtesy of the planning prowess of my sweet Jess & her hubby Ben), where I met their longtime pal, Michael Bublé. This proud papa, husband to the lovely Luisana Lopilato, and certifiably delightful guy, makes for one hell of a dinner companion. But there’s this other thing about him that is perhaps worth mentioning. Oh right. He sings.

Courtesy of this charismatic crooner, here’s a holiday playlist he put together for you of his favorite yuletide jams. In other words, pretend it’s 1993 and Bublé made you a mixtape. Mic drop.

  1. “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by Bing Crosby
  2. My favorite holiday tune of all time. Written when a world was at war and families didn’t know if they’d see their loved ones again. A truly sentimental holiday classic.

  3. “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” by Darlene Love
  4. Christmas began when Darlene Love sang this on Letterman. A rocking Christmas classic

  5. “Jingle Bells” by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters
  6. Nothing like Bing and the Andrews Sisters swinging on this star of a song.

  7. “Blue Christmas” by Elvis
  8. ELVIS…Do I need to say more ?

  9. “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby
  10. Written in Los Angeles , not only a great holiday song but a wonderfully written tune. Great lyrics wrapped in an even better melody equals timeless.

  11. “Cold December Night” by Michael Bublé
  12. I wrote it. Sorry. Had to add one of my own. Please download it 200 thousand times.
