Fav.
the Drummer-Boy (any version)
Charlie Brown Christmas (yay! Chrystal!)

Least fav.
None. Like 'em all.

I like Feliz Navidad. I especially like it when my son sings the song. All nice and Christmassy for the Spanish parts...then a deep breath...and he belts out I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas at the top of his voice...I join him after I stop laughing.

Drives my wife bonkers, 'though...
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

Yeah, I have already played the Charlie Brown Christmas CD about 317 times since Thanksgiving! I love that album!

I'm really a big fan of the various Christmas cartoon songs, like "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and the Cold Miser/Heat Miser song. Yes, I even love the Chipmunk song!

I really hate all those horrible 80's Christmas songs that came out by the then-current one-hit wonders. Except Sting's "Gabriel's Message" and Tracy Chapman's "O Holy Night". Those rocked. But the Eurythmic's "Winter Wonderland"? BAH HUMBUG!

The christmas rap song was by the "waitresses" and the lead singer sadly passed away a few years back. I thnk it was cancer.

My favorite christmas song has always been "father christmas" by the kinks, which while sounding cynical if you follow the words, is actually a song about how everyone should have a merry christmas regardless of theri station in life.


And try not to forget those who have less.

That's a good one too, it's just not one of my faves.

Sorry to hear about the lead singer of the Waitresses, as you posted that, I could hear her voice and realized it was here.

Least Favorite:

Any version of "Do You Hear What I Hear" - whiniest smarmfest I've ever endured.
And (sure to get complaints on this one):
John and Yoko's "So This is Christmas" - Yoko's screeching "Meeeery, Meeeery Kreezzzmazzzz" belongs in a Hammer film, not in a Christmas playlist.


I manage to shut out Yoko's voice in that song. I actually like it to a degree.

I like the sentiment of "Do You Hear What I Hear" but you know a song is bad when you find yourself answering the song. i.e. When the get to the line; "A child, a child, shivers in the cold. Let us bring him silver and gold." My first thought is; 'Wouldn't a blanket be a little more appropriate?'

And another fave, Bing Crosby and David Bowie doing the duet. "Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth"

Doug and Vinny, I don't think I have ever seen your avatars back to back before. You guys look like brothers!

Least favorite Christmas song: Paul McCartney's "Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas time."

Favorite Christmas Song: Darlene Love's "All Alone on Christmas." You can't go wrong with a saxaphone durring the Christmas season. Smile


So, unlike me, you LIKE the depressing stuff at Christmas yes?

It made me cry. I do not like to cry when I am listening to music. I do not listen to LITE 105 at Christmas because I never know when that #$%@ song is going to come on!

For those of you who don't like the Chipmunks, you'd get a kick out of the song, or partial song, I heard on the radio this morning...."Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire."

Only 317 times? I got ya beat on that....I even listen to that BEFORE Christmas...but then again, people do call me obsessed with the Peanuts Gang...

Margarette (who is wearing her Snoopy Christmas sweater, and wearing Snoopy socks to keep her tootsies warm, and looking at her Snoopy watch to see that it's time to go home!

Mandrake-

Have you seen the Christmas shoes movie? I know it's a sad song and that's not the reason I like it. Sometimes, I need to be reminded of how short life on earth really is and to slow down and re-evaluate the truly important things in my life.

An obscure, but personal favorite:

The Jolliest Fat Man

It was Christmas Eve night at the poorhouse
And all of the paupers were there
I stepped in because it was snowing
And snow always screws up my hair

~By the pot-bellied stove, sat a pot-bellied man
~He spoke with some lumps in his throat
~His story was sad and his diction was bad
~And here is the song that he wrote:

I once was the jolliest fat man
With roses in all of my cheeks
I'd load up my sleigh every Christmas
And go on a drunk for two weeks

~My friends say they saw me on rooftops
~And sliding down chimneys at dawn
~With my reindeer in hand, I would glide 'cross the land
~And wake up on somebody's lawn

One morning my wife left this message:
"Each Christmas I've spent by myself
I'm sick of your stupid traditions
So I've run off to Spain with 'a' elf"

~Just then the old man started dying
~He screamed, "May the Lord take my soul!"
~We went through his wallet to see who he was
~His address read simply:
"North Pole"

~~So, the next time you go by the poorhouse
~~If, by the poorhouse, you go
~~Just take off your hat, to a dead guy who's fat
~~And whisper a silent "Ho-Ho"

Weird Christmas songs bring out the best in me, like I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas, I'm Gettin Nuttin For Christmas and Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.

I try to evaluate things in life. I realize the point the *** song is making. I don't want my heart ripped out by a Christmas song! Let me know if there's something wrong with that!

I think http://www.whjy.com runs a feed of their broadcast. In the morning (6-10) the local "shock jocks" Paul and Al will have a playoff of the "worst" Christmas songs ever. Hippopotamus and Nuttin were on there along with Ru Paul's "All I Want For Christmas Is Some Liposuction" and another artist's "There's Somethin' In The Chimmny, And I Don' Know What It Is" and others. There also a CD of Dr. Demento's favorite Christmas songs that you might enjoy.

My favortie is "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues

My least favorite is "When a child is born" by Johnny Mathis... very cheesy indeed Smile

Anyway, I'm wishing all of my friends over the pond a "Merry Christmas" and a Peaceful New Year.

All the best.

Oh yeah, Scott. I forgot about "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas." I love that one!

And Larry Norman has one I like called "It's Christmas Time":

Santa Claus is coming and the kids are getting greedy
They know what's in the stores ´cause they seen it on the TV

and

It used to be the birthday of The Man who saved our necks
Now it stands for Santa Claus, they spell it with an "X"!
