One of my favorites has always been Harry Connick Jr's version of "Sleigh Ride". I seem to always sing it to my kids, even when it's not Christmas! laugh

My girls and I are really into Pentatonix and their versions of Christmas songs. Especially "Carol of the Bells", it's so good!

I think that kid was probably a scammer. The store in question was Jimmy Choo. I doubt his dying mother needed $1,200.00 shoes. laugh

Carol of the Bells -- seriously, one of the best songs ever. i could like workout to it. Any version is great, but especially Trans Siberian Orchestra, August Burns Red, and the one from the Home Alone Soundtrack. Actually the entire home alone soundtrack is pretty solid.

Darlene Love --Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) & Alone on Christmas.

All I want for Christmas is you -- except the Olivia Olson version from Love, Actually.

My favorite album is Sleddin' Hill by August Burns Red. They add a new song to the digital album every year. O Come O Come Emmanuel and Carol of the Bells are my favorites at the moment.

I have yet to find a version of Little Drummer Boy that I don't like.

Most every other Christmas music can disappear from the face of the earth and I wouldn't be upset.

I watched the video of Pentatonix singing "Mary, Did You Know?" and thought it was amazing. We just ordered their Christmas album and had it sent to my mother in law. Kinda hoping I get that for Christmas smile

My son bought me the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD the other day and I've been listening to that. Plus I just like some of the older songs done by artists like Bing Crosby

I like the acapella song that is being posted on FB by a young group that sings "Mary Did You Know"....

Looking for my sanity
Ok, a few more, totally random, but I love Christmas music:

Straight No Chaser - 12 Days of Christmas/Africa mix & Christmas Can Can
Blink 182 - Won't be home for Christmas
Alan Jackson - Let it be Christmas (note: I hate country music and I love this song)
John Denver - Aspenglow & O Holy Night
Barenaked Ladies - God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen

And of course: Dropkick Murphys - The Season's Upon Us

One of my favorite verses:

"My sisters are wackjobs, I wish I had none
Their husbands are losers and so are their sons
My nephew's a horrible wise little twit
He once gave me a nice gift wrapped box full of %^&*"

Agreed! Santa baby should be done by no one else. Way best Catwoman.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
but only by Judy Garland or James Taylor.
It's gotta be sad.

Mary Did You Know...the Pentatonix version in under the tree. My teen loves them.

"O Holy Night."

I does not matter who sings it. I cry every time. And when it is my daughter, I sob like a baby.

I cry almost every time my daughter sings, but that one's a sobber.

Thanks Robin, that is the best version, and the one I was thinking of, the Taylor Swift version is only OK

And yes she was the best Catwoman, and also mad crush for this 6 year old boy along with Jane Semore in BattleStar Galactica.

"Oh Holy Night" is good. It takes someone with good vocal range and control to sing it.

Y'all might not much appreciate the version of "Oh Holy Night" that appears on the Chieftains "Bells of Dublin" Christmas album. Can't remember the vocalist but it's pretty wretched. One wonders if his leg is being pulled or it is done as a mockery. Mars an otherwise enjoyable album.

"Mary's Boy Child"- The lyrics pretty much sum up Christmas theology for me. Love the Boney M version.
