“Deck the halls” didn’t make the list, but here’s a little breakdown of some of my favorite holiday/Christmas songs. A “Top 6”, if you will. These aren’t in any particular order. Oh, and I don’t really think you can go wrong with Andy Williams or
Charlie Brown Vince Guaraldi.
Here are a few “honorable mentions”. Even though it didn’t make the top of my list, I do enjoy Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You”. Her new song, “Oh, Santa”, may beat it simply because it’s more dance-able and it got Harrison shaking his groove thang. “Toy Jackpot” by Blackalicious has me pumped for Christmas, too. You can catch it on a Target commercial and download it for free here.
For the sake of putting it out there, there are a few that I do NOT like. I don’t know that there’s 5, but there are at least 4 I can think of. And they don’t get the holiday color treatment, either.
1.) Last Christmas – Wham! (or Glee cast for that matter. Sorry guys. Not this time.)
2.) Same Old Lang Syne – Dan Fogelberg
3.) Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer – Elmo & Patsy
4.) Mary Did You Know – Kenny Rogers and Wynonna (love the lyrics, not the actual song)
So, what about you? Do you like/
hate dislike the same songs? Are there “musts” on your Christmas playlist that aren’t on mine? Do you vehemently disagree with me on one/some/all of these? Oh, and I consider this separate from Christmas songs you hear at Church. I was going a different route with my list.
