Frankie Goes To Hollywood - The Power of Love
Really liked this when it came out in the 80's and it has remained a favourite Christmas song to this day.
(The video I wanted to post had been disabled ;(
And of course - The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York...
One of my favorite songs of Christmas is by Kathy Mattea. It's a wonderful song that tells of the birth of Jesus.(For some reason, I couldn't copy and paste the embedded code, but here is the link) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4wTf7fOK9s
Christmas is my second favorite holiday second to Halloween. There's something wonderful about the sights and smells and colors of Christmastime. Although it's become too commercial of a holiday I will always treasure it for the memories I made as a child when my dad would go...
Mine has to be 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' - I just absolutely love that song and I remember how we used to just randomly add stuff in during the gaps like 'Cupid eats bananas' and ' Santa plays monopoly'. It's quite funny and it usual extends the song a good 10 minutes...
I actually have a Frank Sinatra's Christmas album that I absolutely adore.
It's really difficult to pick just one song, but if I had to, I guess It would be Silent Night.
I know, It's kinda traditional, and old... But... anyway...
B aby it's cold outside
I really can't stay - Baby it's cold outside
I've got to go away - Baby it's cold outside
This evening has been - Been hoping that you'd drop in
So very nice - I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice
My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, what...
She did a hauntingly beautiful version of this song.
I just heard it for the first time in years earlier on tonight.
I miss hearing it.
Otherwise, I'm not much of a fan of Christmas Carols.
Little Drummer Boy ranks second.
I used to dance to that one a lot when I was a...
Old native song that my mom used to sing when I was a little kid...it's hauntingly beautiful. I should try to find the lyrics and then update this.
Ok, I found them...must have been pretty young the last time I heard it, now it makes me sad the way we treated the Native...
I have so many Christmas songs that I love to hear around this time of year; here are some I do listen too:
Any from Elvis Presely
"All I want for Christmas is you" from Mariah Carey
"Frosty the snowman"
"It's the most...
The Pogues and Kirsty McColl in 'Fairy Tale Of New York'
Kirsty McColl had the most beautiful voice......her tragic and early death was such a sad loss.....:(
A beautiful lady with an amazing talent.
RIP Kirsty McColl.....
Blues Traveler always seems to know how I feel. This song is no exception, a song sung from the point of view of someone that can't quite get into the Christmas spirit but really wants to. Maybe its because I'm getting older but holidays don't feel as magical and fun to me as the...
Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite
Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
by Brenda Lee - I sing it throughout the holiday season. The chorus is:
Rockin' around the Christmas tree,
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily in the new old-fashioned way.
You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let's be jolly...
I rarely hear something so beautiful and moving and technically except standards. I simply want to say to you this realization exceeds all the universal humanitarian messages. In it / " Stand by me "/, nothing comparable! There are only persons of obscure repute overflowing...
A friend of mine called one of my favorite Christmas songs the scary one! I guess because it sounds scary! LOL! (It is actually the Ukrainian Christmas Carol.)
Other favorites include: Angels from the Realms of Glory, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, Joy to the World, O...
Probably my all time favourite - When Santa got stuck up the chimney. You just can't get tired of it!! Today me and a friend sang it over and over again 5 times! Then another 5 times. Our throats hurt after that :) You can't hear it and not smile though!
When Santa got stuck up...
That's a hard one...I have a lot of "favorites". "O Holy Night" tops it I guess... but then there's
"What Child Is This?" "Silver Bells" "White Christmas" "There's a New Kid in Town" "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" ...just to name a few. They all having meaning in my life...
I loveee Nat King Cole. His voice is so beautiful and sounds like a dream- I could listen to him sing about taking the garbage out and be in awe.
So Oh Holy Night by Nat King Cole is hands down my all time favorite. Every time I hear Oh Holy Night done by...
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn...
Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire , Jack Frost Nipping at Your Nose... Has always been my favorite Christmas song. It means the best season of the year is here!
Joy to the World - by the Edwin Hawkin Singers or Whitney Houston is next.
Peace and Love to you.
The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole is my absolute favorite Christmas Song.Every time I hear "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire" I just want to reach out and grab my sweetie and kiss her. To me it is one of the most romantic songs ever.
I love it so much that I had it sung at my wedding.
Of the Father's love begotten,
Ere the worlds began to be,
He is Alpha and Omega,
He the source, the ending He,
Of the things that are, that have been,
There are so very many Christmas songs to choose from. However, the song that popped right in to my mind when I read the title of this group was Silent Night. Yes I do believe that is my favorite Christmas song. Now I do not even have to think about my favorite Easter song...
My most favorite Christmas song is Carol of the Bells, last year I had an awesome version of it by a band on my MySpace profile. I wish I could remember it, it was so cool. Anyway, I like most versions of this song.
I love the song from Jhon Lennon...I think it's called "So this is Christmas" or something like that.
I remember when I was in primary school I had to sing it with my class...and it makes me feel a kid again!
