With all that has been said on another thread about Christmas music on the radio starting way too early this year, What Christmas music do we enjoy hearing?

 

Probably my favorite so far is "O Holy Night" sung by Josh Groban.

Good choice! Stevie Nicks' Silent Night has to be up there and I enjoy any Christmas music by Phil Spector's girl groups.

An interesting song is Silent Night/7 O'Clock News done by Simon and Garfunkel. One of the Christian Brothers played it in one of my classes though I don't remember which one.

Picking just one is hard ...  I'll go with

"The Little Drummer Boy" - Bing Crosby & David Bowie version

A few years back there was a show called "A Claymation Christmas". My favorite part was the rendition of "We Three Kings", by three claymation camels.
However, my personal and longtime favorite song/hymn is, "Angels We Have Heard On High".

On Christmas Eve at my parish (O.L.P.H.) the Choir will be singing "Angels We Have Heard On High" before Mass. Listening to the bass voices really makes the song.

I like "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)" by The Ramones, "I Believe in Father Christmas" by Greg Lake and "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues.
I love anything on Dr. Demento's Christmas CD's...a holiday tradition at our house.
On the traditional music front I love playing any of the various Celtic Christmas CD's around the holidays...I think I have 4 of them.

After years of buying various Christmas Collection Albums, I got smart.  I asked my daughter to download and burn my 12 favorites.  Now, feeling much like Clark Griswald, I own The Ultimate O'Connor Christmas Music CD.

You may want to make a similar disc.  Here's my lineup:

 

Happy Christmas (War is Over)     John Lennon & Yoko

White Christmas                          Bing Crosby

Peace on Earth/Drummer Boy       Bing & David Bowie

Have Yourself a Merry Little           Frank Sinatra

    Christmas

Holly Jolly Christmas                    Burl Ives

Frosty the Snowman                    The Ronettes

Home for the Holidays                  Perry Como

I Saw Mommy Kisssing Santa       Jimmy Boyd

     Claus

Rockin'Around the Christmas Tree Brenda Lee

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like    Perry Como

      Christmas

Do You Hear What I Hear?            Bing Crosby

Jingle Bell Rock                           Bobby Helmes

 

All time favorite:  Christmas at St. Teresa's featuring MC's

own Kevin Faughey and Russell Kacin, (dec.), both '66. 

 

Anyone have a copy they could duplicate?

 

Be good,

FXOC '66

Hi Frank....... I might have a copy somewhere.. I will dig through my record collection ( yes, records- not CD's...lol) and see if I can find it... You know, even though we made that album for Christmas 1961, I  still play a tape recording of it at least once during the holidays... It takes me right back to the days when life was so much more simpler and we seemed to have so much to look forward to... I think Bill Curatolo, Garry McAuliffe, Sal Bagliere, and several others of MC'66 are on the record as well... Happy Thanksgiving!....KJF'66.

Last year on one of his "standards albums " Rod Stewart did a version of "it's cold outside" with Dolly Parton that was pretty good. I hate to admit it but Madonna's version of Santa Baby is pretty good also. Brother Michael played Simon and Garfunkels Silent Night / 7 o'clock news in my frosh religion class. My all time Holiday favorite is still Ave Maria by Perry Como . I think he sang it every year at the end of his Kraft Music hall Christmas show !!!!!!!
