My Favorite Christmas Songs

Was switching Christmas CDs in the minivan during a traffic jam on Tuesday and it started me thinking about my favorite Christmas songs. Here are the ones that come to the forefront:

Ave Maria by Luciano Pavarotti

There is almost a tie between The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole and The Christmas Song by Mel Torme. I still lean toward Nat King Cole.

Any classical version of Greensleeves

White Christmas by Bing Crosby

O Holy Night. This version by Josh Groban is a nice one.

More contemporary favorites:

Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) by u2

Christmas in Hollis by Run DMC

Santa Claus is Back in Town by Elvis Presley and Blue Christmas by Elvis. I loved my Elvis Christmas cassette tape. (boy, that dates me, doesn't it?)

Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses

Merry Effing Christmas by Mr. Garrison (I'm sorry, you had to expect something obviously not family friendly from me)

A tribute to Tony Romo - his little wench singing Let it Snow. I prefer Harry Connick Jr.'s and Ottmar Liebert's versions, but she is pretty. I joked that Jessica willed Romo to fail on Sunday, so someone else could 'go down' for a change. :) Sorry. Bad pun.

    I echo the Nat King Cole, Pavarotti, U2, Waitresses, Elvis and Run DMC. Some other great Christmas songs you need are George Winston's piano instrumental version of "Carol of the Bells"; the Cocteau Twins covers of "Winter Wonderland" and "Frosty the Snow Man"; Burl Ives "Holly Jolly Christmas".

    Also...I love the version of "Blue Christmas" done in the Porky Pig voice...hysterical!

    I'm kind of partial to the more recent Mr. Hankey. Where God tells Mary:

    "You can suck all the d!@# that you want to and still be a virgiiiiiiinnn...."

    And of course there's Adam Sandler's classic for Hanukkah.
