    Name your favourite Christmas song!

    Well with this time of year comes the incessant playing of Christmas songs in the grocery stores, on the radio, and on TV. What's your favourite Christmas song?

    I like pretty much anything from the 70's and before, Sinatra, Elvis, Burle Ives, etc. the classics. But I have to say my favourite one of them all is "There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays" by Perry Como.

    Re: Name your favourite Christmas song!

    I don't much care for most of the Christmas music albums, but there is one that I absolutely love:



    A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Original Sound Track Recording Of The CBS Television Special

    The piano is my favorite instrument, and this soundtrack is cool, jazzy, melancholy, sweet, lovely, and altogether marvelous. My favorite cut is the instrumental version of Christmas Time is Here. It sounds like snow falling softly on a still winter night.

    NPR had an excellent story on the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas. The suits at CBS hated the special and the music, but I'll give them credit for airing it anyway. Of course, when it was a hit, they loved it.

    Otherwise, I prefer traditional Christmas carols. O Holy Night is glorious when sung well (awful when it's not), and another favorite is O Come, O Come, Emmanual. Somber, and yet hopeful.

    I forgot about that one, I have it tucked away somewhere, I agree it is great album, it makes great background music, and it works just fine to listen to as well.

    That's my favorite song too.

    I love setting in front of the fireplace with the Christmas tree lit, a glass of warm wine w/cinnamon stick and Gary Morris singing his Christmas songs from his amazing "Every Christmas" Album.

    "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas"


    I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
    Only a hippopotamus will do
    Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
    I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy



    I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
    I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
    He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
    Just bring him through the front door,
    that's the easy thing to do



    I can see me now on Christmas morning,
    creeping down the stairs
    Oh what joy and what surprise
    when I open up my eyes
    to see a hippo hero standing there



    I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
    Only a hippopotamus will do
    No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
    I only like hippopotamuses
    And hippopotamuses like me too



    Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
    Teacher says a hippo is a vegeterian



    There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
    I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage



    I can see me now on Christmas morning,
    creeping down the stairs
    Oh what joy and what surprise
    when I open up my eyes
    to see a hippo hero standing there



    I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
    Only a hippopotamus will do
    No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
    I only like hippopotamuseses
    And hippopotamuses like me too!

    I used to really like the "Carol of the Bells", but now I think of paper hats and fries everytime I hear it.

    Damn you internet!

    Karen Carpenter sang some lovely Christmas songs.

    I don't like the dumb Christmas songs like the Chipmunks or those stupid singing cats and dogs. They are demeaning to the spirit of Christmas.

    O Holy Night is my favorite, especially when sung by Josh Groban or Andrea Bocelli (or similar).

    Nat King Cole's Christmas album is a timeless classic. My favorite Christmas song is probably The Christmas Song.

    Karen Carpenter could do 2Pac and sound like an angel.

    I hate how the radios play these holiday songs 24/7. Makes me queasy.
