Free Christmas Music from Amazon!

What's the only thing better than Christmas music? Free Christmas music! is playing Santa this year with a few Yuletide tracks that are completely free to download. I suggest you snap these up:

1. Angels We Have Heard on High by Brian Setzer Orchestra
Brian Setzer has two great Christmas albums and this track gives you a taste of the rock-a-billy big band style at which he excels.

2. Elf's Lament by Barenaked Ladies with Michael Buble
I don't care what anyone says: Old school BNL was pretty fantastic. Their Christmas album is kind of a letdown on the whole, but this track delivers and the unexpected pairing with Buble actually works.

3. Love Came Down at Christmas by Jars of Clay
This song is literally a classic--written in 1885 to the tune of a traditional Irish melody. You can hear a MIDI version of the original here.

4. We Three Kings by Dave Brubeck
A jazzy rendition from a talented musician.

Want more? Check out the Free Christmas Music Blog for more (legal) site suggestions. I also recommend trying your luck in the Hype Machine.

Know of any other places to get free Christmas tunes? Leave a comment! But don't recommend anything illegal. Santa's watching.
