Holiday Music

  1. There's a current thread re favorite Christmas movies. I'd like to ask what's your favorite Christmas song.

    I like 'Baby, please come home for Christmas'. Sung in the 1960s by Darlene Love of the Phil Spector girl groups. Not too long ago re-recorded by Celine or Mariah. It's just a powerful song, musically and sentiment.

    I've posted this other years. My favorite Christmas song.
    Raised Catholic I loved attending Protestant churches with friends for the lively music.

    I got to be a part of a random act of culture when they started singing Christmas Hymns out of nowhere in the DFW area at a mall. I had to go dry up in a bathroom. That was Awesome. My favorite is "Oh Come Emmanuel."

    Bing Crosby & David Bowie - The Little Drummer Boy / Peace On Earth - YouTube David Bowie and Bing Crosby Peace On Earth/The Little Drummer Boy......I have been a big Bowie fan since I was a teen and I remember watching this show in awe.The intergenerational aspect of the two of them together was cutting edge at that time.It was a really odd pairing but they killed it.It still gives me chills and makes me tear up.The show aired back before VCR's.I remember waiting for the song to play over the radio station for hours so I could record it on my cassette deck.I'm glad to have it on a compilation CD now and can play it any time I like.Things were so different then,you had to WATCH commercials on tv and there were only three local radio stations that played rock.Our first TV remote control was on a cord and turned the TV on,cycled through the 8 channels we received and then turned it off....Sheesh,How did I get so old? The last time I saw Bowie in concert he looked so fine but he forgot lyrics a few times,he even made a joke about it....

    I'm sorry, but anyone who listens to those non stop christmas music radio stations for two months is clearly at least a little psychotic.

    I am an atheist, but, love the holiday and most of the songs. All kinds of holiday songs, one that i love, is some (not all versions) but most versions of "The Carol of The Bells". Lots of songs i love, "I'll Be Home for Christmas"
    and so many others! I LOVE MUSIC! and i love the holiday!! a lot!!

    HERE IS ONE OF MY 'NEWER' FAVORITE HOLIDAY SONGS, for past several years now,
    this one is especially for atheists, skeptics, nonbelievers, non-traditionalists, ppl who celebrate "FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US" etc: (great lyrics, very sentimental, about how for some ppl, the holiday is about family)

    (give it a minute, to get past his appearance, he really IS a very neat person)

    edit, oh, one more song, i always play, while waiting for the family 'roamer' to arrive home, is Kenny Loggins "CELEBRATE ME HOME"...

    but i like all the traditional old time songs, too, and love my James Brown christmas CD, too.
