Favorite holiday songs!

Recommended Posts

The older I get, the less I enjoy Christmas... except for the music! (And mom's bourbon eggnog.) Last year I couldn't rest until I had Lou Rawls' version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Here are some more of my favorites:


Feliz Navidad - Jose Feliciano

Christmas Wrapping - the Waitresses

'Zat You, Santa Claus? - Louis Armstrong

2,000 Miles - Pretenders


What songs get you in the holiday spirit? Post here!

Bing Crosby & David Bowie - Little Drummer Boy


And of course old favorites from: Gene Autry, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, The Ronettes, Elvis...

Santa's Beard-They Might Be Giants

No Christmas While I am Talking-Walkmen


These are the only Christmas related songs I can stand now. Reason being my office is playing non-stop christmas music from Nov 15-Dec31st with the same 20 or so songs repeating. Crazy thing is I don't work in retail I work in an office building so there is no excuse! Someone save me! :ohwell


Sorry to not have the spirit for holiday music!

For serious Christmas music, nothing beats the Vince Guaraldi Trio's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" - great childhood memories.

There were two of these going, so this is the merged version. :wave


And I could listen to a whole CD of just different versions of Silver Bells (cheesy, I know!) and Baby It's Cold Outside.


This thread was the first one. That is why I posted in this thread.


I have the R.E.M. fanclub single from 1993. Silver Bells is on the A-side.
