Weather you’re having a a gathering or simply want a soundtrack for your family’s celebrations, streaming Christmas carols and holiday music will add just the right touch.  Of course you can build your own play list of MP3s, or let the few songs of a CD loop or you can try the following:

  1. Visit http://www.last.fm/listen/globaltags/christmas to start popular holiday music playing live.
  2. Use a male-to-male stereo cable, like this one (can also purchase at Radio Shack or Office Max), to connect the audio out from your laptop to your home entertainment system or stereo.
  3. Ensure your laptop won’t go to sleep, turn it up and enjoy!

You could also use the stereo cable above with a MP3 player, or iPod (adapter may be required) to play music through a larger stereo.

Another site to stream holiday music is http://www.accuradio.com/holidays/ – You have a bit more control over your play list, but they have a small credits section between each song.

Instantly listen to music online:
This is just the neatest site!  www.deezer.com has got to be the easiest way to immediately start listening to any song.  Visit the site, type in the name of your artist or song and BAM it starts playing. Fast, easy, and free. If you want, there are options to legally download the song on the spot.
For example: http://www.deezer.com/track/167510

www.last.fm is another online resource for listening to music online.

Find your music online:
Ever hear a song on the radio you just wish you knew the name or artist? Here’s what I do: www.google.com. Type in: +lyrics <all the lyrics you heard>.

For example: +lyrics said it’s too late  … will quickly find One Republic’s – Apologize.http://tinyurl.com/6rre24
(The + in front of a word in a Google search makes that word a REQUIRED part of the search.)
