If you could only listen to one artist sing Christmas music from now on, who would it be?

Id pick Perry Como......every time.

They are excellent! Definitely in the running for my top favorite, but there are too many to just pick one

The only two albums I own are Josh Groban and Michael Buble - but I super love Bing Crosby as well.

Michael Buble's Christmas album is Perfection.

I own a lot of Christmas Music and compiled a 2 CD set of my favorites, from performers "signature" Christmas songs. Such as...
White Christmas - Bing
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Frank
The Christmas Song -Nat King Cole
A Marshmallow World - Dean
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Andy
and so on...

We had an instrumental one made in the 1960's that we loved. Record got worn out decades ago, and I have no idea who made it. But I keep listening to Pandora hoping I will find the name of the album. It was CHRISTMAS JOY, but then were at least 100 others too.

Do you remember any of the songs on the album? The Ventures had a Christmas Album titled Christmas Joy (and included that track) back in the 60's... btw, Welcome to the bers. 75 and counting... :carols:

Sure, the songs were the common Classic, Hark The Herald, Santa Claus is Coming to town, Silent Night, God Rest Yea Merry Gentleman, Silent Night, Sleigh Ride, I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, and a few more...all was instrumental 100%, two sided full LP. Songs were the most Common One sung in Churches at Christmas, except no singing.

Well, I know that the Ventures had a couple of Christmas albums with classics carols recorded (the were an all instrumental group), but I'm not sure if either included all those particular songs. Try iTunes for Christmas Joy and see what pops up. And... good hunting. :carols:

I appreciate that, I didn't think of that. I always think of ITUNES as new hits. Great idea.

No problem. I did get the new Herb Alpert Christmas album last year. It was good to hear that famous trumpet once again... :xmascandycane:

I'd have to agree with Steph- too many good ones to just pick one. Each artist has their own feel- warm and cozy, nostalgic, jubilant, fun...something for every mood. :santa-smiley: I looked to see if I had more of one particular artist in my play list, but I don't. There are a few albums that I can listen to straight through, though- Gene Autry, the Rudolph soundtrack and Johnny Mathis'- all 3 bring back lots of childhood memories.

I have listened to many of the songs, i.e. White Christmas, done by several different artists, but if I had to pick one to do that song, it has to be Bing. Though there are many great singers, I will have to admit that when I hear certain songs, one singer will always come to mind... for instance
The Christmas Song - Nat King Col
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Andy Williams
I'll Be Home for Christmas - Frank Sinatra
A Tennessee Christmas - Alabama
and so many others. Again not to knock any others who do these, but I do have my favs... :xmaseyeroll:

I like Neil Diamond. I even like George Strait. I've heard Alan Jackson sing too! Country Christmas sounds nice!

None of it is bad. I've even included a bit of Jazz Instrumental Christmas music... :elf1:

How about Acapella groups? I like Pentatonics Christmas arrangements.

Bing Crosby!

There's an interesting Bing Crosby & Michael Buble video of White Christmas. Look up YouTube in case you haven't seen it yet. Brilliant use of technology.

I saw an album that has Elvis doing duets with many of today's artists. It was really something to listen to... Merry Christmas!! :presents3:
