Favorite Christmas song?

Do you have one?

My favorite is "Carol Of The Bells," either sung acapella by a large choir, or the Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra versions.

2. O Holy Night

I'm not religious in the least, but the emotion in that carol, especially the (almost never recorded second verse) gets me every time.

5. I like Dan Hicks' cover of Carol of the Bells. Nothing says Christmas better than scat and yodeling





And speaking of Dan Hicks, I enjoy this song for all it's Christmas irreverence.

But I particularly like "Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire", and "Who Put The Stump?"

"Linus and Lucy," by Vince Guaraldi

"Father Christmas," by the Kinks is great.

24. Check out Chanticleer's version, on their "Sing We Christmas" album.

Devastatingly beautiful. Very old Christmas hymn.
