The Best Gift by Barbra Streisand. It always touches me and makes me cry. It came out the year my first child was born. We'd had great difficulty having children and Shawn - born December 5th - was our "best gift." He's 36 now and still one of my cherished Christmas gifts. His birth was certainly evidence of miracles of the season.

Great Choices everyone!!! I found a soulful CD the other day at WalMart and now kick myself for putting it back. I think I'll go see if I can find it tomorrow.

Mary did you know? I heard this song on the radio one day and it touched my heart.

Silent Night is the gold standard for me. Followed by the 50s version of The Little Drummer Boy (middie, I will have to look for the Seger version cuz I love his music)/

Sizz, I like the Mariah Carey version of "All I Want for Christmas is You"

Also am a sucker for all the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CDs.

At the moment I am listening to the Charlie Byrd (genius guitarist) Christmas album. The man's exquisite technique just gives me goose bumps.

So does Charlotte Church's Christmas offering.

Somebody at work gave me the new James Taylor Christmas CD - it's pretty nice in a James kind of way.

On a lower note, we also enjoy the Bob River's Twisted Christmas parodies - songs like "Walking Around in Women's Underwear" (Walking Around A Christmas Wonderland); "Didn't I Get This Last Year?" (Do You Hear What I Hear?)

The Carpenters' "Merry Christmas, Darling" is my most meaningful, melancholy song.

"Mary's Boychild" by Bony M gets me joyfully singing and dancing (well, DRIVE-dancing), whenever I hear it.
