I have many favourites, particularly Oh Holy Night…but one not yet mentioned is

Come On Ring Those Bells - by Evie Tornquist


Oh Holy Night, Luciano Pavorratti
Someday at Christmas,Stevie Wonder
The Christmas Song, a Dave Matthews original you can find on YouTube, very cool song!
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Rolf the Dog, of The Muppets
The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth, Bing Crosby & David Bowie
Silent Night, Frank Sinatra

To name a few…:stuck_out_tongue:

Anything off of Josh Gorban’s Noel album, plus Believe and O Holy Night (although it’s impossible to actually find that one)
Anything off of Roch Voisine’s Christmas is Calling album
I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, John Mellencamp version
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Corey Hart version (a good Rockin’ Christmas song :thumbsup:)
Snoopy’s Christmas
Christmas Time, by Brian Adams
Run Run Rudolph, by Brian Adams (comparatively, the Chuck Berry original sounds … dated. IMO)
Feliz Navidad, by José Feliciano
Happy Christmas (War is Over), John Lennon
Wonderful Christmastime, Paul McCartney
Let it Snow, Michael Buble

A good spattering of the classics and the newer ones I find.

Oh Holy Night- John Berry
What A Wonderful Begining - Kenny Rogers
All I Want For Christmas Is You- Vince Vance And The Valiants.

Any of Josh Groban’s, especially “O Holy Night,” “Panis Angelicus,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” I also really like “Christmas Eve in Sarajevo” by TransSiberian Orchestra and “Mary, Did You Know?”

Right now there is an MP3 Christmas alblum on sale at with 99 songs for only $1.99. The music is very good and it is well worth the $2. You can sample the songs before you buy the alblum as well.

Great version, although personally I prefer Nat King Cole’s.

I can’t believe no one’s mentioned Bing’s (the original) version of White Christmas!

Also, another standard I love is Andy Williams’ It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Also the original version.

As for modernish ones, I love the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Canon, Wizards in Winter, and Sarajavo 12/24.
