Holiday Playlist 2011

Holiday Playlist!

Apologies for the randomness of posting on the blog lately. December is a terrible month for consistent blogging, I will need to prepare for this next year.

Anyway, after a discussion on holiday tunes over the weekend, I wanted to share a post with some of my favorite holiday songs!

Wham, “Last Christmas”
The song is great, but closeted George Michael in this video is an 80s fashion extravaganza.

David Foster, “Carol of the Bells”
My parents had the CD with this version of “Carol of the Bells” and I just always really enjoyed it.

Mariah Carey, “All I Want For Christmas Is You”
Mariah Carey served up an instant Christmas classic in 1994 with this song that I think everyone loves now.

Andy Williams, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”
Another fabulous classic, if I were making a movie set during the holidays, it would definitely open with this version of the song.

Nat King Cole, “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting…)”
I think I never realized until now that most of the Christmas songs I like are mostly older than I am. Anyway, Nat King Cole kills it with a holiday classic.  My dad then changes the words to something much less appropriate, and my Christmas is perfect.

Bobby Helms, “Jingle Bell Rock”
This song is fun and everyone knows the words, which equals a big holiday win.

Elmo & Patsy, “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”
A hot mess of holiday tragedy, it still makes me laugh, but not nearly as much now as it did when I first remember hearing it.

Jose Feliciano, “Feliz Navidad”
“I WANNA WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS!” I looooove singing along with this song, so it has to be on the list.

Alright everyone, chime in and leave a comment. What are your favorite holiday tunes?
