Favorite Christmas Tunes

I don't care what some grinches say about Christmas tunes but I love them and they make Christmas so special. Every single store front out there is broadcasting the music and I can't get enough.

So here are my favourites in no particular order.

1) Jingle Bell Rock: One of the holiday songs that ROCK sung by Billy Idol. See Dave? He's family friendly too.

2)Jingle Bells: It's not Christmas without this classic, I chose a jazzy version by Diana Krall who happens to be Canadian.

3)I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas: Don't ask me why but I love it and I think it's cute. Apparently there's a story behind it, check it out

4)The Christmas Song - Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire: sung by Nat King Cole

5) Deck the halls: sung By twisted sister. A rock version.

6)Let it snow: by Michael Bublé. He has the most amazing voice and he's good looking AND he's funny! Ahhh, I love Bublé .

Here's an interview with hot! And funny AND he's another Canadian.

7) ROCKIN' AROUND : By Brenda Lee Another rokin' song Thanks to Moi for reminding me of another favorite.

8) Feliz Navidad ~ Merry Christmas : No Christmas party is complete without it.

What's your favorite Xmas song?

7aki, too funny that you are introducing me to to US/Canadian Christmas music. I'm am flipping that Twisted Sister does that one! (Not to mention current work culture, etc. with those co-workers of yours)

I'll return the favor. I am enjoying Jordanian protege Zaid Salfity's Christmas CD, produced by Shireen Abu Khader. :)

For the most part, I like the old hymns of two or three centuries ago, done with an orchestra and huge choir. Or rockin versions.

In my car, I am listening to Michael W. Smith's "Christmastime", especially the medley of Away in a Manger/Child in a Manger.

Have a great weekend!
