Christmas Songs

Post by kingoflove21vher » Wed Dec 18, 2013 6:59 pm

What is your favorite and/or least favorite Christmas songs everyone!?!?

Me? I am quite a fan of The First Noel and Auld Lang Syne (which isn't really a Christmas song but I've always seen it as one since I was a little girl and it was one of my favorite moments in my favorite Christmas movie It's A Wonderful Life.) My least favorites are the really commercialized ones, I even dislike Jingle Bells at times unless its played traditionally.

My favorite christmas album is A Merry Christmas from Frank Sinatra.
I love the song Mistletoe and Holly, lol. And jingle bells.

I love Santa Baby (the original one, not any of the remakes)
Bing Crosby.
Sigh.
Oldies.

I have a CD of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole Christmas songs and I love the one where whichever of them sings O Tannenbaum. When I was younger I LOVED Leroy the Redneck Reindeer. :D

I like pretty much any Christmas music, but I have 1 song I HATE:
1) So This is Christmas -- everyone I know says this song depresses them every year.

I like some traditional Christmas music.. like the stuff that gets played everywhere. Just simple old stuff... but I hate when it gets over done. (I think most people do)
I do really like TSO Christmas music. I love how they incorporate heavy guitars and drums into their stuff.

Merry Christmas Everybody- Slade.
Merry Christmas Everyone- Shakin' Stevens.
Fairytale in New York- The Pogues.
Stop the Cavalry- Jona Lewie.

I also love listening to all the old, classic Christmas songs too. I love Christmas and Christmas music so there isn't many songs that really annoy me. There is this one called 'Feliz Navidad', not sure who sings it but for some reason I hate it haha.

I have the Glee Christmas CDs playing on repeat all day from December 1 onwards.

My husband prefers Elvis Presley Blue Christmas, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. That's cool, I like them too.

I'm a huge Christmas music fan. I buy 1 or 2 new CDs every year. Have a huge collection.

Favourite song..hmmmm.....

Favourite Religious song is O Holy Night.

Non religious....White Christmas or Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire. Both completely inappropriate for Australia but I love them with a passion. There's nothing like singing about snow when it's stinking hot, you're sweating over the stove and you've never actually touched snow in your life.

Off topic but I think quite a bit of Northern Hemisphere-er's expectations of a kangaroo and quite a bit of Southern Hemisphere-er's expectations of snow are about the same. :lol:

Not as exciting as they seem to be. :D

Oooh no, I still stop and stand in wonder when I see ...erm.....flock, pride, group.....of kangaroos. They're amazing.

Snow, slush, slippery footpaths and freezing cold weather I can live without. My husband has the opportunity to work in London for a while and I still hesitate because of the weather. I love London like a second home.

But show me a koala or a kangaroo or the Sydney Harbour Bridge and I still shiver with excitement and pride to be Australian.

I've never seen snow fall from the sky, but fresh on the ground while I took trips to Canada, New York, & Northern Cali. Something I wish to experience one day.

We put the tree up and then jumped in the pool! Standard behaviour.

We went to Disney once for Christmas when I was a kid, we were in Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day, and I was amazed at how nice out it was. Then last year we went to Disney in February and it was a nice break from the cold. Where I am, we had a semi-white Christmas last year and a few years before that we got a lot of snow. But honestly I could do without a white Christmas lol. We just had it snow three times in a course of a week and it was crazy. Not all of it has melted yet, so it's icy and slushy. The night we got our tree it wasn't too bad out. As much as I complain about the cold though, I'd rather be freezing then sweating hot. I can easily get warm and get a nice cup of peppermint coco but it takes me awhile to cool off in the heat.

I want to experience a white Christmas just once. I think it would be beautiful. Mulled wine, sitting by a fire singing carols...it's very romantic.

I also like that the Northern Hemisphere has something exciting to look forward to in Winter. We don't. Winter is just winter. No Christmas, no snow, just bleak, grey, drizzly weather. Miserable.

Having said that, it is nice to sit outside for Christmas dinner. Kids are in the pool, adults are all drinking cold, white wine, no colds and coughs and flu, I would miss a Summer Christmas.

Our weather is the same goose; although significantly colder than the other seasons, I believe that has to do with living by the coast though.

The only songs I can stand are the non-traditional depressing ones like Happy Christmas (War is Over) and Do They Know It's Christmas.

I feel like I'm over Christmas, which is sad because I just started to get into it a few years ago. :( There hasn't been any holiday spirit around here at all this year.

Next year I hopefully will be living in a warm place where the temperature has never been below freezing. If I never see snow again in my life I will be absolutely fine with that.

Haha, I know this thread is old, but are you talking about hard candy Christmas sung by Dolly Parton? If so I love that song and made my mom play it so much that I broke the tape. She wouldn't buy me another one. She made some 'excuse' that they didn't sell it anymore.
