I really do love this time of year.
I just this weekend turned my kitchen radio from MyTalk107.1 to Kool108 so I could listen to Christmas music and it seems like every other song has me saying in my head “This! This is my favorite!”. I figured it was time to make a list so I could compare next year.
As it turns out, I’m pretty old school in my Christmas music!
In no particular order because I really can’t choose a favorite:
The Christmas Song– Nat King Cole (And really, anything by Nat King Cole. Ever.)
Do They Know it’s Christmas?– Band Aid (Bono. What else can I say?)
The Little Drummer Boy-Harry Simeone Chorale (Judah and I sing this at night before bed.)
All I Want for Christmas is You– Mariah Carey (The fact that this is in what might be my favorite Christmas movie ever is just the icing on the cake.)
God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen/ We Three Kings– Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan (Two favorites singing two favorite? Yes, Please!)
Fairytale of New York– The Pogues (Mists my eyes up every single time I hear it.)
Do you Hear What I Hear?– Bing Crosby (A Classic.)
Carol of the Bells– St. Olaf Choir (The Lutherans really churn out some phenomenal choirs.)
Merry Christmas, Darling– Karen Carpenter (Christmasing with you…)
(There’s no Place Like) Home for the Holidays– Perry Como (I know this is more Thanksgiving, but I like it. Makes me think of station wagons loaded to the gills, skidding down icy roads to Grandma’s house.)
So, I guess that is my top 15!
What are your favorite Christmas songs?
