Jingle Bells
Carol of the Bells
Twist of the Magi
Brand New Year - SHeDAISY - Song Listings


and right now I'm listening to Jeff Foxworthy - White Trash Christmas (funny)

My favourite Christmas song is Stop the Calavry. But any Christmas song is great, because it gets me in the Christmassy mood!

Angels we have heard on high.
Do you hear what I hear.
Deck the halls.
Halleujah/ Alleuia from Handel's Messiah.
Rockin around the christmas tree
Jingle bell rock.
Jingelbells
Here comes Santa Claus.

Re: Favorite Christmas Song/Album

My favourite song is "Just Like Christmas" by Low. I can't stand all the cheesy/traditional stuff - mainly because it's been played to death longer than I've been alive.

Ooh, and "Christmas Song" by Dave Matthews Band. Great song that I can play badly on the guitar.

Re: Favorite Christmas Song/Album

I tend to get annoyed by hokey lyrics, but like Christmas music overall anyway, so I assembled my own personal album of instrumental versions of the "classic" carols (except one in Latin, which counts well enough because I can listen without being conscious of what they're saying) from a half-dozen different sources.

Re: Favorite Christmas Song/Album

I've been listening to Sarah McLachlan's Wintersun album, which is pretty good. I can't stand those awful Christmas pop compilations any more, though I liked some of the songs when they first came out.

Here's a few alternative Winter/Christmas songs:

Grey Eye Glances - Our Own Place And Time (A Christmas Song)
Grey Eye Glances - Snow
Kate Bush - December Will Be Magic Again
Loreena McKennitt - Seeds Of Love
Loreena McKennitt - Snow
Sarah Mclachlan - River
Vienna Teng - The Atheist Christmas Carol

Me, too. I also like John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" very much.

Re: Favorite Christmas Song/Album

I've always loved Wizzard's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day" - they used to put as much money and effort into each single as most other bands put into an album.

I don't know about best, but I can tell you the worst. "Wonderful Christmas Time" by the Beatles.

Ugh doesn't even begin to cover it.

Re: Favorite Christmas Song/Album

For me, it's not Christmas until I've heard Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody, Wizzard - I wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day, and The Pogues with Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York. Only after I've heard those three songs in a day is it officially Christmas!
