i was at a work Christmas party last night and ended up having an hour long discussion about our favorite Christmas Songs! Everyone had a different opinion. it was very interesting as everyone had a favorite AND had a reason why! :singing:

I think mine is 'A Fairy Tale of New York' by the Pogues. I kind of like the fact that its not a completely glamorized portrayal of Christmas.

I love so many, but my very favourite is White Christmas. Many versions will do, but the Bing Crosby of course will always be 'it'.

I also love:
I'll Be Home For Christmas
Winter Wonderland
All I Want For Christmas Is You
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

And just so many more...

10-08-2012, 06:33 AM
so, so many. here are just a short list:

O Holy Night
All My Heart
Whence Comes this Lovely Fragrance?
O Come O Come Emanuel
Carol of the Bells
People Look East

of course, all the well known ones like "Silent Night", "the First Nowell" etc.... and many others

10-11-2012, 03:33 PM
Impossible...but it would likely be an Andy Williams song though.

King Rick

I have way too many favourites, but one I always seem to play over and over without ever getting sick of is "I Believe in Father Christmas" by Greg Lake.

11-19-2012, 07:44 PM
For me, it's either The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping or The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York. Love them both! :)

11-19-2012, 10:19 PM
I've never heard "Fairytale of New York." I've heard this is better known in the UK than in the US. guess a listen on youtube is in order

11-19-2012, 10:23 PM
I think mine has to be White Christmas sung by Bing Crosby.

11-22-2012, 12:08 PM
white christmas is my favorite song

11-24-2012, 07:22 PM
I am sure that I have said it enough on here but, in my humble opinion, Andrea Bocelli has the single best Christmas Album that I have ever heard. That being said, my favorite of his (and all around favorite) is "Adeste Fideles" (Oh come all ye Faithful) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ7cWPejR0Y). A close second would be "What Child is this" w/ Mary J Blige (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-GX0eWXjq8)

Oh my goodness, I forgot to mention 'I Believe in Father Christmas' by Greg Lake. An incredible song, one I never fail to listen to every year. :)

11-25-2012, 10:54 AM
I love all christmas song!
But my favourite is: Train - Shake Up Christmas

11-25-2012, 09:13 PM
My favorite song would have to be Little Toy Trains by Glenn Campbell. I'm not a big country fan but, that song brings back so many memories of my mom and my childhood during Christmas.

I love Silent Night, to me it embodies everything that reminds me of Christmas.

Classic Christmas

Picking a favorite Christmas song is like picking a favorite child...can't do it, so I won't even try :)

However, there are some that really stand out for me...

Silent Night
O Holy Night
The Holly and the Ivy
The Christmas Waltz
The Nutcracker (in its entirety)
Ding Dong Merrily on High

Jona Lewie - Stop The Calvary
Chris Se Burgh - Spaceman Came Travelling
The pogues - Fairytale of Newyork
Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas
Band Aid - Do they know it's Christmas
Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
Cliff Richard - Mistletoe and Wine
Dean Martin - Let it Snow
John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War is Over)
Boney M - Mary's Boy Child
Michael Buble - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Mud - Lonely This Christmas
Pat Boone - Winter Wonderland
Brenda Lee- Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
Slade - Merry Christmas
Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews - Baby it's cold outside
Eartha Kitt - Santa Baby
Colbie Caillat - Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Wizzard - I wish it could be Christmas every day
Jackson 5 - Santa Claus is Coming to Town

But my favorite carols are all my old Sunday School ones :love: :

Once in Royal David's City
Away in a manger
Silent Night
O Little Town of Bethlehem

Merry Christmas Darling

I find it very difficult to choose. Maybe Silent Night. But I also love Come, O Come, Emmanuel and What Child is This? My darling's favorite, for sure, was O Holy Night.
