Feliz Navidad

Redd said...

O Holy Night- gets my vote!

FSP said...

Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You

LottaColada said...

I'm a sucker for Mariah Carey's
"All I Want For Christmas Is You"

Lindsey said...

@FSP - ditto. Makes me dance in my car!

Jeneral said...

Otis Redding's version of White Christmas. I like the sad ones.

*karen* said...

Favorite song to sing aloud to is "Let it Snow." Favorite song to hear someone else sing is probably "O Holy Night."

camembert said...

Merry Christmas Darling by the Carpenters.

LottaColada said...

I also really enjoy "Charlie Brown Christmas" by Vince Guaraldi. It brings me back to my childhood!

nichole said...

@camembert - that one is mine as well.

VIPblonde said...

4-way tie, depending on my mood:

NSYNC - "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"
Jose Feliciano - "Feliz Navidad"
Mariah Carey - "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
Percy Faith - "We Need a Little Christmas"

I like my Christmas songs upbeat :)

Last Christmas by WHAM

Karma Chameleon said...

1.Mariah Carey: All I want for Xmas is Yuuuuuuu!
2. Nat King Cole: Merry Christmas to you.
3. Sleigh Ride
I love all the Xmas songs and sing them all through the season to the point of other people around me ask me to give it a rest. I'm one of those annoyingly happy perky positive people. Most of the time. " Our cheeks are niiice and ROsy and COMfy cozy are weeeeeee! We're snuggled UP TOgether like TWO birds of a feather are weeeee!" Probably not the right lyrics, but that makes it more fun anyways.

Last Christmas by Wham and What
Child Is This
Oh and the theme from Christmas Vacation for fun!

PuggleWug said...

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear. We used to watch Little Women (the old one) around Christmas time. They sang the song in it. I made a point to learn it as a kid.

Dashing through the snow. I am I hope it snows here soon!!

rhinovodka said...

"Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"

raven said...

Carol of the Bells

Roman Holiday said...

Domenic the italian Xmas Donkey :)

Amber said...

Tom Waits - "Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis"

shakey said...

Traditional - O Holy Night.

Contemporary - hard to pick just one, so I'll offer up 2000 Miles by The Pretenders and I Believe in Christmas by Greg Lake. (Or is it, I Believe in Father Christmas?)

jadedlove said...

Silver Bells by Bing Crosby

MacAttack said...

Fairytale of New York - The Pogues

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

I can tell you my least favorite--the new rendition of "baby it's cold outside" by Colbie Caillat and Gavin Degraw. Their voices don't mesh well...kinda like nails on a chalkboard. Unfortunately, it appears they're knocking boots, so we'll have to endure more of this in the future.

ABlake said...

Tie:
John Berry's version of O Holy Night
Whitney Houston's Do you hear what I hear

SusanB said...

I love Carol of the Bells too. While I enjoy the contemporary Christmas music (White Christmas, Let it Snow, All I need for Christmas is You) I really love the old carols like Joy to the World, O Little Town of Bethlehem, etc. Brings back my childhood, especially being in Christmas pageants in Catholic school. Good times.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

And is it just me, or is Gavin DeGraw really skeezy? He comes across so fake and disingenuous to me. Can't believe she dumped her boyfriend for him. But I digress... ;)

Tru Leigh said...

I'm partial to "Merry Christmas, Darling" by the Carpenters.

Susan said...

The entire Elvis Presley Christmas album.

And O Holy Night.

I am also in love with Silent Night because my son wants me to sing it to him virtually every night when he goes to sleep. It's our lullaby.

Maja. With a J. said...

"Last Christmas" by Wham! *L* Must be with the video though, it is deliciously cheesy and awesome. I am a lifelong choir geek and a general holiday enthusiast, so I kind of love all Christmas songs. And also, Adam Sandler's Hannukah song. I am an equal opportunity nerd.

fancyscreenname said...

This Christmas ....Donny Hathaway

Hazeldazel said...

Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses!!!!!

RIP, Patty Donahue

What song is she talking about? The punky one that goes...

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year.
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year.
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year.

That one. You now have the song in your head all day. You're welcome.

Judy Garland "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".

The entire Bing Crosby "White Chritmas" album is, to me, what the holidays sound like.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

And Brenda Lee Christmas songs.

Ms Cool said...

Profetissan said...

Fairytale of New York, without a doubt!

justducky said...

This Christmas by Donny Hathaway is my all time favorite.

europium said...

"Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney and Wings and "The Wassailing Song" by Blur are my favorites. They remind me of Christmas in the UK.

Also love "Merry Xmas Everybody" and "Christmas Wrapping!"

CraftyGirl said...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Beach Boys "Little Saint Nick!"

I still have my Mom's old Christmas records and bring them out every year. My favorite one is an all-orchestral one (Andre Kostelantz(sp?).

And the Vince Guaraldi "Charlie Brown Christmas" is timeless...it's usually on repeat.

lalaland said...

im a sucker for britney's "my only wish this year" and mariah's "all i want for christmas"

i also love "christmas shoes" even though it makes my cry every single time!

"this christmas" really gets me in the holiday mood too =)

lalaland said...

CraftyGirl said...

Oh, and "Run, Run Rudolph" by Chuck Berry

auntliddy said...

"Good king wencelaus". Yeah i know. Nobody ever heard iof it but i love it.

Sunny said...

Feed the Wold, Last Christmas (Wham), O Holy Night, Santa Baby (Eartha) and It's Cold Outside. I could listen to those on loop (said the person who worked in retail and thought I'd hate Christmas music 4EVAH)

BestWesties said...

My all time fave is "Do They Know It's Christmas" by Band Aid. Cheesy but I love it.

lazyday603 said...

Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses. They knew what boys liked.

lazyday603 said...

Oh yeah, Fairytale of New York by the Pogues. Dark but funny. "You scumbag you maggot.." not your usual Christmas song lyrics.

"I could have been someone!"
"Well so could anyone."

Terri said...

New Life and Attitude said...

I am so glad you love it too!!! I was thinking I was the only one.

Sarah said...

The whole New Kids on the Block Christmas album OBVIOUSLY.

Also, Mariah, the Phil Spector album, Fairytale of New York, Hark! The Herald Angel, Once in Royal David's City, O Little Town of Bethlehem. I also really like Lindsay Lohan's version of Jingle Bell Rock (I know, I know).

Sarah said...

Oh yes, my Dad had a turntable version of The Christmas Polka, which I love. Can't find it on CD or download though.

lakeuniongirl said...

Any christmas-y song being sung by Nat King Cole or Bing.

Mango said...

Carol of the Bells

Me said...

Kenny Rogers and Wynonna Judd - Mary, did you know?
I heard it last year for the first time, and as corny as it sounds, the lyrics made me think of what a beautiful story the birth of Christ is. I’m not religious at all, so that was kind of a "moment" for me. Doesn't need to be a true story to be enjoyed. It's just beautiful.

yodelay said...

Last Christmas is definitely my favorite. If you've ever worked retail during Chriatmas, you learn a lot of pop golden fried cheese Xmas tunes, but that obe I can listen to all year round!

Merlin D. Bear said...

Seriously? It's a tossup between "I Saw Daddy Kissing Santa Claus" and Gilda Radner's "I want an Alligator for Christmas".

Em Dahling said...

I want to thank everyone for this fabulous holiday playlist!

Im surprised no one mentioned Burl Ives!

Amy in MI said...

Christmas Will Be Just Another Lonely Day - Brenda Lee

Christmas By The Phone - Good Charlotte

Comma Chaser said...

Tossup between Elvis' version of "Another Blue Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland" as sung by Johnny Mathis. Reminds me of the rare moments when my family got along in the 1970s.

Donny Hathaway - This Christmas
Aslin Debison - The Gift
Skydiggers - Good King Wenceslas
Mediaeval Baebes - Coventry Carol
