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?
