My Favorites

Last week, one of my favorites blogged about her take on the 5 worse Christmas songs - ever. I never commented because I couldn't get past some of the over-the-top comments her readers made on the topic.

Also, because I was already working on this post, and I giggled - because a few of my favorites were on her worst list. Ah well - if we all agreed, life would be boring, right?

I really only have one song I don't like - Twelve Days of Christmas. Although, I did find a version that makes me giggle. So, I'm listing a few of my favorites instead. I needed more than five because...well...I just couldn't choose.

Believe - Josh Groban

Yule That's Cool - Bette Midler

Where Are You Christmas - Faith Hill

Santa on the Rooftop - Trisha Yearwood (w/Rosie O'Donnell)

Christmas Shoes - Alabama

Santa Claus (I Still Believe) - Alabama

Grownup Christmas List - About a million different artists

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer - Elmo & Patsy

Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey - Lou Monte

I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas - Gayla Peevey

Sleigh Ride - About a million different artists

What are some of yours?


  1. Well let's just knock off all my favorite Trans-Siberian songs in one shot here:
    First Snow
    Old city Bar
    Christmas Eve in Sarajevo 12/24
    An Angel Came Down
    An Angel Returned
    Christmas Jam
    Christmas Nights in Blue

    A Mad Russian's Christmas
    Good King Joy
    Promises to Keep
    Faith Noel
    Wizards In Winter
    Queen Of The Winter Night

    I'll stop there. That's not even half of their fact, that's probably not even half my favorites.

    Bing Crosby - Who DOESN'T like this guy?!
    Little Drummer Boy (w/ David Bowie)
    Silver Bells
    White Christmas
    Here Comes Santa Claus
    It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

    Anyone like a natural harmony? Then Hanson will definitely do it for you. Off their album "Snowed In":
    White Christmas
    Christmas Time
    Silent Night Medley
    At Christmas
    Christmas Baby Please Come Home

    JOSH GROBAN. Singing songs the way Christmas songs SHOULD be sung!
    Little Drummer Boy - this is the most EPIC version of this song I have ever heard.
    Ave Maria
    What Child is This

    More traditionally:

    Have A Holly Jolly Christmas - Burl Ives
    Baby It's Cold Outside - Rod Stewart/Dolly Parton version ONLY please =)
    Rockin Around The Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee
    Sleigh Ride - Jack Jones

    Deck The Halls/Carol of the Bells - Mannheim Steamroller

    Anything covered by the Glenn Miller Orchestra...

    Eh. I'll stop there. As you can tell, I like Christmas a little bit.

  2. It's possible you and I were separated at birth.

    Let me get this straight...there is a Rod Stewart/Dolly Parton version of Baby It's Cold Outside?!?

    Have you ever heard Dolly's version of Jingle Bells?

  3. I have heard it! Although I have never looked into her music for a Christmas album, which I should do (since I own probably everything else on the planet).

    I was trying to hold back on that list. I actually deleted songs prior to posting. Doesn't show, really XD
