Amy Grant - Breath of Heaven

As Christmas Day gets closer, I like to bust out the deep cuts. The closer the 25th gets, I still listen to all of the "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" and the "All I Want For Christmas is You" -type, lighthearted songs, but I also add into the rotation the more serious songs. This is the time when the "Grownup Christmas Lists," the "Christmas Shoes," and the "O Holy Nights" start making their way into my iTunes playlists. Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven" feels like Christmas for its subject matter and its inherent Christmasy vibe. Also for me personally, this song feels like Christmas because it reminds me of all those holiday seasons riding in my mom's Geo Prizm listening to it over and over and over because it was the only cassette tape that she owned. Ahhh Christmas in the 90s. *Looks off into the distance and silently reminisces*
