Your fave Christmas tunes?

I just thought of Q as I was putting up our chirstmas tree last night..

I always adored Nutcracker suite (thus came the inspiration for my christmas avatar... ), Tchaikovsky is one of my favourite composers.
I also love "O holy night", such a beautiful melody...
from more recent stuff, I like Bryan Adams's "Something about Christmas time".... ah, and "Grandma got run over by the reindeer"!!

Oh Holy Night, What Child Is This, and Michael W. Smith's Angels We Have Heard On High.

The little girls made up a "Christmas Carol" (sung to the tune of Deck the Halls)

I'm a big Tchaikovsky fan. The Nutcracker Suite was the very first CD I ever bought. Did you know that he composed the music to the choreography? Normally, the music is composed first, then the dancing is done, but this ballet was done backwards. Oddly enough, Tchaikovsky himself didn't like The Nutcracker Suite, although that is what he is most known for.

I've got a lot of traditional Christmas music on my pc. I also have a taste for the hilarious. Songs like Walking 'Round in Women's Underwear (about a couple cross-dressers), The Twelve Pains of Christmas, etc. Back when I lived in Tulsa, one of the local DJ's had someone record Blue Christmas as Porky Pig. It was hilarious!

My faves are:
"White Christmas"
"I'll Be Home For Christmas"
"The Christmas Song"
"Marshmallow World"

Christmas song artists:
The Carpenters
Nat King Cole
Frank Sinatra

Anything from Nat King Cole (good call Z!) I love the old school tunes from Nat, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Burl Ives, etc. Reminds of Christmas at my grandparent's house. For some reason, O Holy Night gets me the most.
