Mine? "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee! Runners up would be anything from the classic Jackson Five Christmas Album which I've played obsessively since I was nine.

I may be the minority in this but I play Christmas songs on the oldies stations like a yuletide idiot and sink into a depression the day after Christmas when the stations resume their regular format. I live for Alvin and the Chipmunks, Nat King Cole, Elvis, The Ronnettes, Run-DMC, Jerry Lee Lewis, Adam Sandler, etc singing about chestnuts, tin soldiers, mistletoe and grandmas being run over by reindeer.

Post your fave song!!

Hey Sandie,

Mele Kalikimaka is a very cute song.:) I think I may have heard it in a movie, but I do like it.
I adore Bette Midler and love all that she does, except I hate the song " Wind beneath my wings":D

Hi Les,

I know I'm suppose to post my favorite Christmas song. But I can't think of any.:doh: But I can tell you about one I hate. Nick and Jessica's "Baby It's Cold Outside" Jessica's voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me.:eek:

O Holy Night ~ Michael Crawford
Yes, you spelled his name correctly. I really enjoy his version that he sings with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It's on the Trans-Siberian Orchestra "The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve" DVD. Excellent!

O Holy Night performed by Wayne Bergeron is amazing.
O Holy Night tends to be my favorite Christmas song. I also enjoy Cartman's (South Park) version.

But I think Christmas Eve / Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans-Siberian Orchestra is my all time favorite Christmas song.

Hey Sandie,

Please tell me you're joking right...? RIGHT?


Also, I'm partial to:

Happy Christmas (War is Over) - Uhh.. John Lennon
Carol of the Bells - No Idea
and my dad always used to play that snoopy vs. red baron song every single year, ha. - ya got me?!


But please, anything, ANYTHING BUT Paul McCartney's Christmas song. Oh dear god! Simply having a wonderful Christmas time my ass! Anyone who's written a good Christmas song please step forward. Woooah, not so fast there Paul. (Gee, can you tell how much I don't like this song?)

I don't have just one favorite song, but many.

I do really adore the songs from Vince Guaraldi's soundtrack to the 1965 special A Charlie Brown Christmas. Christmas really is just not the same without them. The child in me also loves Burl Ives' Christmas songs.

Anything Christmas by Nat King Cole's mellow, honeyed voice.

The Rat Pack Christmas album is another must-play.

"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas," by The Drifters almost always makes me smile. There's more, but I'm too tired to think of them. :)
