Christmas Music

  My apologies for those of you here that don't celebrate this holiday

As I said here before I'm no longer a practicing Christian, but for a lot of reasons that aren't important to talk about now I still really enjoy listening to spiritual, traditional, and secular pop Christmas music this time of year. There's something nostagically peaceful, for lack of a better term, to having the tree up, a fire going, and Christmas music on in the background.
I enjoy all types of holiday tunes, but tend to like the classical songs the most...like Nutcracker, Messiah, Oh Holy Night, and Oh, Come, Oh, Come, Emmanuel to name a few.

What are your favorites?

  Pavarotti's version of Oh Holy Night and Mannheim Steamroller's version of Silent Night (Stille Nacht) are two of my many favorites.

  I like nothing about Christmas, save the Muppet's Christmas Carol.
"Light the lamp, not the rat! Light the lamp, not the rat!"

  Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas sung by Judy Garland; that song gets me everytime, as does the musical which i LOVE.

seriously.

maybe it's just a Canadian thing, I have no idea,

but every christmas as far back as I can remember (I've already downloaded it for this year), I've listened to Raffi to count down to Christmas.

  It's my Christmas Tradition to watch Scrooged with my mom. Favorite line is "did you try staples!?" (in reference to getting antlers on some mice)

But oddly enough, my favorite Christmas Song is What are You Doing New Years Eve.

You had better mean the Ella Fitzgerald tune. The Harry Connick Jr. cover makes my head hurt.


But yeah - that's a good one :)

A bit cheesy? Maybe...but I find the juxtaposition of Bowie and Crosby together strangely fascinating. I also happen to remember seeing this on tv when it was first sung, so it's a bit of a nostalgic trip down memory lane for me too.
