Mannheim Steamroller - Deck The Halls (the "Axel F" of Christmas songs)
Robert Earl King:
I get chills (the good kind) everytime I hear "Do You Hear What I Hear?" by Whitney Houston.
My favorite is "Ave Maria," Schubert or Gounod's. It sends chills down my spine and hairs stand on my neck.
(I like it in Hebrew.)
Oh, it's more like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNuYlz...
The Jewish prayer Mi Chamocha?
Never mind, I can't find it on the internet. D=
I love that "michamocha..." song, too. It's easy to play on the guitar.
Rebecca, I love "Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel" and I also loved, as a child, singing "Ding Dong Merrily on High" - especially the melismatic Gloria, Hosanna in Excelsis bit.
While we are on the topic of favorites, let me just give a "shout out" to my all time favorite Christmas song, "Oh come, oh come Emmanuel." I love that song! I don't like it when females sing it, or when it is accompanied by instruments. I love songs that haunt me - not that tickle my emotions, re: "Christmas Shoes."
In that case, Thewaywardwind, Burl Ives owns all songs Christmas, especially "Frosty the Snowman." ::heart melts::
AllisonMiles...different strokes for different folks. "Little Drummer Boy" is my all-time favorite Christmas song. My least liked is the dogs barking "Jingle Bells" closely followed by "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" and "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth." I didn't know Madonna had recorded "Santa Baby." That should be a crime. Eartha Kitt OWNS that song. Nobody can sing that like she can.
I am outraged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Christmas Shoes by Newsong is one of the most amazing songs ever written. If that song doesn't touch your heart, then you don't have one. And as a matter of fact, my mom and I sing "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas" to each other all the time. It's an incredibly cute song. I don't see how anyone could not like that song.
That stupid Alvin and the Chipmunks xmas song - the one with the "hula hoop" line or whatever.
On the other hand here's a couple of Christmas tunes I have a fond spot for - not sure if they ever made it over here, though:
Jona Lewie - Stop the Cavalry (1980) - http://youtu.be/5hVEdE0O5tA
and the timeless
Slade - Merry Christmas Everybody (1973) - http://youtu.be/H6YbLZf8i5I
Agree with Rebecca, not The King's finest moment.
I don't want to be an iconoclast, but I can't stand the way Elvis starts the song "Blue Christmas."
Go listen to it and see what I mean!
I always wondered band Aid's "Do they know it's Christmas time?" if the musical artists were simply being mean sods. However, I did enjoy their follow up song: "What is it about using a calender and remembering overly commercialized holidays you just don't understand???"
I think my least favorite is The Little Drummer Boy. All those "pa-rum-pum-pum-pums" are just there to fill up space.
