    Christmas Music

    Tis the season to dig out those cds. I was wondering what everyone's favorite Christmas music is. I love Christmas music, but I'm rather picky and only like to listen to "my" Christmas songs. Some that I like are...

    Everything by Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. I love their music, and the Christmas songs are wonderful.

    O Holy Night and Carol of the Bells by John Williams. These are from the Home Alone soundtrack and are my favorite versions of each song. They're classic and beautiful.

    Christmas Time is Here by A Fine Frenzy. The singing is so soft and pretty.

    Carol of the Bells by The Bird and the Bee. A version that's definitely not everyone's taste, but I like how different it is.

    Baby it's Cold Outside by Chris Colfer and Darren Criss. A new favorite from the Glee soundtrack.

    What are your favorites?

    CD wise, the Glee Christmas album and Sarah McLachlan's Wintersong get a lot of play on my iTunes.

    My favorite Christmas songs:
    Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
    Welcome Christmas
    Carol of the Bells

    I like several versions, so I didn't include a specific artist

    Hallelujah Chorus!

    The Nutcracker. Bing Crosby songs. Pretty much any non-contemporary Christmas song is all good in my book. I'm not really into the shoes and hippos songs.

    There is one contemporary song I really like that is set to a non-traditional piece (I think). It sounds like a choir of altos/sopranos and they sing the words "Merry Christmas" a lot. Anyone have any idea what that one is?

    Oh, whoops. I thought I checked to make sure there weren't similar threads, but I missed that one. Sorry for the duplicate.

    I'm a huge fan of Ella Fitzgerald and other Jazz xmas music.

    My Favorite CD's are:

    Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas - Jingle Bells and What are you doing New Year's Eve

    Brian Setzer - Boogie Woogie Christmas -Love it!! Rockabilly and Big Band rolled into one. His version of the Nutcracker Suite.
    This is festive stuff. Boogie Woogie Santa Great Version of Jingle Bells

    But I love the Soulful Christmas songs from the Temptations, James Brown, The Platters and Stevie Wonder. I grew with those.

    Can't leave out Luther Vandross, Harry Connick Jr. and Barbra Streisand.

    Amazon is offering a bunch of free holiday music dowloads:

    I really like White Winter Hymnal by the Fleet Foxes. (Their entire CD is wonderful, though not holiday music. It's got that snowy day mood.)
