Ten AudioSparx Critics’ Picks for Great Holiday Songs Perfect for Film,
TV Specials, Corporate Promos and Christmas Commercials

What makes a great holiday song?  According to Wikipedia, while he was sitting poolside one night in 1940 Irving Berlin wrote a song he knew was good (he often wrote in the late night hours). The next day he got together with his secretary to dictate the words of his song. Before dictation, he said, "Grab your pen and take down this song. I just wrote the best song I've ever written — hell, I just wrote the best song that anybody's ever written!" The song was, of course, White Christmas, which became the best selling single ever written, plus he had Bing Crosby to sing it.

Andrew Gleibman (Israel)
Israeli musician and producer Andrew Gleibman composes exuberant, emotional, mystical, meditative and melodic combinations of ambient noise with classic piano, flute, strings, church bells, pizzicato strings and female voices. Some tracks exhibit super-virtuosic and humorous piano passages, while others are so tense and chilling they scream Psyco-Madness, Horror and Terror for scenes where everything comes unglued. Great underscore music for Sci-Fi, Freddy, Elm Street, Hitchcock, and more. Andrew's music abounds with surprise and originality.

David Hamilton (USA)
Acclaimed composer David S. Hamilton's compositions and orchestrations can be heard in a variety of motion pictures, television shows, musicals, and national advertisement campaigns. Mr. Hamilton received his Bachelor of Music in Composition for Film and Television with highest honors from Northwestern University and his Master of Music in Film Scoring from New York University.

Sesso and Sottoriva (Italy)
Sesso and Sottoriva are a couple of Italians on our site with laidback Acid Jazz and Latin dance music that will make your temperature rise even in the dead of winter. Check out "Favola Beat," a triumphant blast of cool sax and trumpet sounds, and other house music and ambient tracks. This is a hot duo with a hot vibe whose music will bring smiles to rich lifestyle promos, cruises, high fashion catwalk, adverts for BMWs and Lear Jets, or jammin' aerobics, sports and world news shows. Dramatic, driving, high energy beats for corporate branding and dynamic ad campaigns.

Tobias Gebb (USA)
Tobias Gebb is an award-winning composer from New York City. He won a 1996 Grammy competition with the collaborative group Skizm and as a result worked with legendary producer Phil Ramone. His music received "Honorable Mention" status at The Village Voice.

Manuka Dreams (New Zealand)
Welcome to the world of Manuka Dreams. Let yourself be allured in a world of digital synthesizer sounds and atmospheric arrangements and enjoy the atmosphere of repose and relaxation. Derive strength from the sound collages' profundity and endlessness and slip into soft sound worlds. Elegant tranquility, floating among twinkling stars, meditating in grassy fields, ambient fantasies, deep water scenes, peaceful galaxy explorations. With over 50 exquisite 20-minute tracks on line, each gentle, soft acoustic soundscape is superb for meditation, relaxation, and dreamy fantasies.

Tanis Leaves (USA)
Washington guitarist Tony N Tanis brings us some smokin' hot guitar tracks perfect for Reality TV or movie soundtracks and credits, and other media productions needing his action-packed, energizing music. His "Drama Buttons" builds tension, as does "Rock Climber," and would work well in action adventure films, endurance tests, and ad campaigns for manly fashions, beer, Adidas, Nike, Nascar, and more. Heavy bass and drum rhythms, loud distorted guitars, and a sprinkling of other elements combine to form the exemplary rock music offered by Tanis Leaves.

John Mamone (Canada)
John Mamone is an active musician and songwriter with more than 20 years experience, and is the bass player/lead singer for the Canadian rock band Volume Water. His music has been licenced by MTV for the television program "TWO A DAYS," and he has recorded with producer Jack Richardson (The Guess Who, Alice Cooper), and opened up for Big Sugar, and Pete Best, the original drummer for THE BEATLES. John has also performed live with members from the bands I Mother Earth and Finger Eleven at Volume Water shows.

La Laque (USA)
La Laque is a band that began in Brooklyn, New York, in the fall of 2003. The band creates a beautifully arranged wall of sound with tons of reverb and whispery, sexy French female vocals. Musical elements include screaming surf guitar, garage-style drums, sinewy bass, strings and organ to form a completely unique and beautiful texture that is different from other New York bands. In moments, the band can jump from raucous 60's garage to classy torch music to lush, dreamy indie rock. The melodies are catchy and addictive and the music is equal parts joyous and heartbreaking.
Light Box Therapy (USA)
John Telaak, based in Buffalo, NY, is the creative singer, songwriter and producer behind Light Box Therapy. A DJ through the 80's, John has been writing and recording on his own and with several bands including Sonorous, The Perfect Tragedy, and now Light Box Therapy. In 2006, John went into the studio with producer Armand John Petri (Goo Goo Dolls, 10,000 Maniacs, Sixpence None The Richer) to record the Sunshine Overload EP, with a few friends helping out and Armand on percussion and keyboards.
