    They opened for Buster Pointdexter/David Johansen at a college concert I attended. They perkily took the stage and shouted "We're the Roche Sisters from Upstate NY!" The NYC crowd shouted: "Go back!" roflol

    In retrospect, I thought they were better than the lead act. He was just starting to play with his new persona and it was pretty lame.

    James Taylor's "At Christmas" - a nice, mellow Christmas album with lovely musical arrangements.

    If you are a Broadway music fan, Linda Eder's Christmas Stays the Same is amazing.

    Plus it's very cheap on Amazon!

    If you want something fun and offbeat, download Cyndi Lauper's "Christmas Conga" from her "Merry Christmas, Have a Nice Life" album. It brings a huge smile to my face every time I hear it.

    If you are strictly a conventionalist, Christmas with Julie Andrews and Andre Previn is quite nice.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I can't help it... I still love Once Upon a Christmas by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. My mom played it all the time when I was a kid and listening to it brings back wonderful memories.

    Oooh, thank you! I used to have this CD, but it got damaged and I never got around to replacing it.

    Off to download!

    Vanessa Williams had a Christmas special in 1996. Fell in love with her Christmas album after that.

    A few of my favorite songs:

    Hark The Herald Angels Sing - Vanessa Williams

    Angels We Have Heard On High - Vanessa Williams

    Baby It's Cold Outside - Vanessa Williams & Bobby Caldwell

    Do You Hear What I Hear - Vanessa Williams

    You've got to hand it to his marketing people - they stuff they put his name on is exactly what his teen and pre-teen audience will buy, and likely a lot of his older fans too. Opi actually put out a nail polish collection with his name on it, which I thought was a brilliant idea that I'm guessing did very well for all concerned.

    My cousin who's a jazz singer in Canada recorded a nice Christmas song a few years ago.

    Scroll down to "Christmas Dog". It's a free download btw.

    Three songs I absolutely won't listen to - I change the radio station when they come on - Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (can't stand her voice), and Jingle Bell Rock (just so tired of it)

    Music I like - the traditional carols, Mannheim Steamroller, Transiberian Orchestra, Jethro Tull's "Christmas Song," Handels "Hallelujah" chorus (the whole "Messiah" for that matter), Emerson, Lake, & Palmer's "I Believe in Father Christmas."

    Christmas in Hollis - Run DMC. It was a free download from Freegal, a legal download service from my library.

    The Lovehammers have a Christmas song, the name of which is escaping me (Merry Merry Christmas? Could it be that simple?), that's pretty

    I picked this up last year and love it but then I'm a geek: http://www.museummusic.com/dinosaurholidaytrack.html
    Do note the artists on the recording. They didn't skimp!

    And since I didn't want to start a new thread, here's another music video to go with Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZqz94ODz18

    My all-time favourite. (Didn't we have this conversation last year? LOL)

    Other favourites have already been mentioned (Muppets, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah M., Barenaked Ladies, James Taylor, Michael Bublé, Bruce Cockburn), but here are a few more I love:

    ~ Colin James & the Little Big Band Christmas (I loves me some swingin' Christmas!)

    ~ The Chieftains - The Bells of Dublin (lots of celtic style traditional tunes, and lots of guest artists -- all great but my fave is the one with Jackson Browne, "The Rebel Jesus")

    ~ Diana Krall - Christmas Songs (some with just her trio, some with a full orchestra; I adore her version of "Christmas Time Is Here")

    ~ Holly Cole - Baby, It's Cold Outside (another jazz great, her "Sleigh Ride" is amazing and very differnent)

    ~ Oscar Peterson - Christmas (sometimes it's nice to have just instrumental, and Oscar is the best)

    ~ Aimee Mann - One More Drifter in the Snow (nice folky style, as you'd expect from her)

    ~ The Good Lovelies - Under the Mistletoe (sort of Andrews Sisters meet Django with a bit of klezmer and a touch of folk-country)

    ~ Chris Isaak - Christmas (It's Chris Isaak. 'nuff said.)

    My Christmas music is on cassette tapes (How often do you get to listen to it?). I like "Christmas Time with the Judds" (easy to sing along to), Johnny Mathis, and the Temptation "Give Love at Christmas" (lots of harmonies). I especially like the Tempts "Little Drummer Boy", Johnny's "Do You Hear What I Hear?", and the Judd's "What Child is This?".

    I like modern stuff but don't buy it.

    Please, this post should have a Not Safe for Work warning on it
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    The two I've been listening to all month are Josh Groban's Noel, and the new CD reissue of Ed Ames's two Christmas albums -- http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Ames...3833981&sr=8-1 -- glorious music!!
