I'm with you Les....great songs all!! My 3 favs...

1. White Christmas - Bing Crosby

2. The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole

3. Mele Kalikimaka - Chris Issak or Bette Midler (both recorded it)- I enclosed a link incase you haven't heard this one - very cute and charming Hawaiian Christmas song.
wooooooah, woah, woah. let's re-examine ourselves here.

Bing Crosby is THEE master behind THEE version of Mele Kalikimaka ...

just my humble opinion and all. (i do approve of your list though!!!)

and it is the gem of a song being played during national lampoon's christmas vacation when clark griswold is uh, fantasizing about his uh, new pool.

as far as my favorites? well, here's my top 15 of 2007, in order:

15. the waitresses - christmas wrapping
14. mariah carey - all i want for christmas is you
13. bruce springsteen - santa claus is comin' to town
12. ol' blue eyes - jingle bells
11. brenda lee - rockin' around the christmas tree
10. wham! - last christmas
9. bing crosby - mele kalikimaka
8. phantom planet - winter wonderland
7. run dmc - christmas in hollis
6. fall out boy (oh yes, i admit it) - yule shoot your eye out
5. bing crosby - white christmas
4. paul mccartney - simply having a wonderful christmastime
3. nat king cole - the christmas song
2. john lennon - happy christmas (war is over) ... i get chills when i hear this one start up
1. ray charles - that spirit of christmas


... so that's the top 15 of 2007 ... it varies every year, i promise you. with exception to the top three ... those are pretty permanent. :rolleyes:

honorable mentions: mighty mighty bosstones, rilo kiley, the dickies and trans-siberian orchestra (not so much the christmas eve/sarajevo one that i'm sure everyone's thinking of though).

god, i feel like i'm forgetting a big one... hmmm ... :confused:

"Skating" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, featured in the Charlie Brown Christmas cartoon. Awesome piano work.

Oh yeah..I also love the song "River" by Joni Mitchell (actually prefer the Indigo Girls version). Most people consider it a Christmas song..even though I think it's really just kind of wintery.

Being from Philly, there is only ONE christmas song, and that is "Christmas on the Block," by the late Alan Mann. The story behind the song is that there was a blind family that lived in Philly, and even though they couldn't see, they decorated their house with so many lights, that people would come from all over to see their display. Unfortunately, Alan Mann passed away in 1987, after jumping (or falling) out of a second story window in his house which was on fire. Here is the song...hope you enjoy it. It's the most requested X-mas song on WMMR, Philly's rock station. The video isn't great quality, but I'm really just posting it for the song.

Follow the signature link!

And even though it technically isn't a Christmas song I love The Ventures' cover of "Greensleeves."
