Tis the Season for Music Specials

Tis the season for music and your favorite TV networks have plenty of it for everyone.

There are tributes to singers young and old, new music and oldies, cheerful and melancholy. There are plenty of carols for those feeling the Christmas spirit and even something for the grinches to shake their heads at.

AMC remembers British sensation John Lennon with a live concert, titled Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert airing Sunday at 9 p.m ET.

Performers Aloe Blacc, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Brandon Flowers, Peter Frampton, Juanes, Pat Monahan, Tom Morello, the Roots, Steven Tyler and others will breathe new life into some Lennon’s best songs.

If you want to hear something new, tune in Monday at 10p.m. ET for Adele Live in New York.  Taped at Radio City Music Hall last month, the music powerhouse sings hits from albums 19, 21,  and 25. Yes, Adele will sing her amazing new single “hello.”

Thankfully what you won’t hear is any trace of the 2011 surgery Adele had on her vocal cords. Those who witnessed the November concert said her voice showed no signs of impairment. Translation:  you will be blown away by this performance.

In the mood for Christmas music?

Then you should have tuned into Michael Buble’s Christmas in Hollywood Thursday night. The handsome jazz crooner sings your holiday classics  and some new favorites with Celine Dion,  Tori Kelly,  and Sharon jones and the Dap-Kings.

Missed it? Watch the whole thing HERE.

Grumps, we haven’t forgotten about you. A Very Murray Christmas – Bill Murray’s holiday special featured on Netflix – is perfect for the cynic who loves to complain about Black Friday commercialization, Christmas music in October and Yule Tide Cheer on Steroids.

The Sofia Coppola-directed program centers around a failed TV special. There is plenty of crap singing and silly characters to snark at. Plus Murray along with guests Maya Rudolph and Chris Rock provide plenty of funny moments.  Best of all, it’s short.

Watch with a drink in your hand.
