Good list.

I must be getting old. I really like the old standards. Give me Tony Bennett, Etta James, even Perry F'n Como singing a Christmas song. Big band as well.

I agree with you Silverado, last weekend I got really excited because I bought a Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra Christmas cd at Best Buy for $2.99. Unfortuanately the quality is not very good and there is a choir of some sort that drowns out their voices.

The best by far is Nat King Cole's A Christmas Song.

I think the best one is that one about Grandma and a reindeer... I think the reindeer runs over her or something like that...

"Santa's Super Sleigh" is the greatest Christmas song in the world.

I love Christmas music... I DLed a bunch last year and need to add to the collection now that it doesn;t take 45 min. to DL a song.

A lot of my faves have been mentioned, but I really like the traditional carols. I go with my grandma to her church's Candlelight service each Christmas Eve, and I really enjoy their selection. It always includes the mainstays: Silent Night, Away in a Manger, Joy to the World, etc...

But then there are some, like O Holy Night, that just sound better when a full choir perform them.

As far as secular carols go, The Christmas Song tops the list. I also like Sinatra's version of Let it Snow and Bing Crosby's White Christmas.

Still, I like some of the contemporary songs, too... Paul McCartney's Simply Having a Wonderful Chhristmas Time is greatness.

I will go with Adam Sandler's hannukah song and what eochs said...about not caring...or maybe its i have no clue about 90% of those songs yall listed
I do think for the next month there is a little overkill on all xmas music

on another note why the hell is it XMAS? Is christ substituted freely for an X?
Jesus X???

You know, I hate when people substitute "X" for Christ, because it seems, to me, to cheapen the entire reason for the holiday.

But then I read, maybe last year, that in the early days of Christianity, followers sometimes used an "X" in reference to Christ, in order to escape persecution. Now, I've never really checked into the validity of that, but I could see it making sense.

Still, it irks me to see "X-mas."

Ok, I heard another song today that is one of my favorites, but I don't know the name. I figured one of you would know.
It goes, "Although it's been said, many times, many ways, Merry Christmas..."
What is the name to that song?

Christmas Song, The (Chestnuts Roasting on An Open Fire)
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
We'll find it hard to sleep tonight
They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toy and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeers really know how to fly
And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to 92
Although it's been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

1. Santa Clause and His Old Lady ("Here comes Santa Cleese, the vato with the bony knees!") :lol:

2. McKenzie Brothers' 12 Days of Christmas (And a beer... in a tree!"

3. Frosty the Smowman

4. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

5. Any of Harry Connick, Jr.'s Christmas songs

By the way, do any of you remember the Christmas spoof that MAD-TV did several years back called "Raging Rudolph?" I taped it and that thing cracks me up every time I watch it.

"You call Yukon Corleone." :badgrin:
