Christmas music you love

Thought it might be good to have a counter to the music you hate thread.

Two of my favorite Xmas tunes are a couple of the lesser-known or played tracks;



what are your favorite song or even better, forgotten favorites?

Re: Christmas music you love

I'm a big fan of the vintage crooners singing Christmas songs - Andy Williams, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Johnny Mathis, etc. It's a Marshmallow World by Dean Martin is one of my favorite songs, much less Christmas songs.

"We Three Kings" by The Odds. This one is a bit obscure, but always one of my favorite Christmas songs. Has a "Mary Jane's Last Dance" vibe to it...

Re: Christmas music you love

Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses
Vince Guaraldi/Charlie Brown Christmas is a masterpiece

I've always had a soft spot for The Carpenter's Christmas album
Usually the Barenaked Ladies album is fun, but I tried listening yesterday and it was a bit too melancholy for me this year. Too many bad things in my personal life.

I'm always down for the Nutcracker and of course Vivaldi's Winter.

If you don't have JD McPherson's "Socks", you don't have the best Christmas album (of all original songs) in years!

Re: Christmas music you love

I quit the XMas music thing the moment Dec 25th passed, but this damn song is still stuck in my head. (In a good way, FWIW)
