    Favorite Christmas Song?

    Post  Paeter on December 5th 2017, 9:09 am

    Whether for nostalgic, melodic or lyrical reasons, what would you say your favorite Christmas song is?

    In recent years "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" has become more meaningful. I'm feeling more "world weary" than I used to and the words of this song speak to that for me.

    Melodically, I like the minor songs like O Come O Come Emmanuel, I Wonder As I Wander and What Child Is This.

    And don't know the name of the song, but in my house I enjoy singing the line "O by gosh, by golly, it's time for mistletoe and Holly..."

    LOL. I can see how those lyrics would have specialised meaning for you.

    For meaningful lyrical content, I would say "I Celebrate The Day" by Relient K


    For pure fun, I would say "Aussie Jingle Bells" by Bucko and Champs


    and for coolest ever modern interpretation of a classic, I say "O Holy Night by The Great Transparency"

    "O Come O Come Emmanuel" used to be my favorite, but once everyone around me started claiming it as theirs, I had to switch.

    "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" are currently duking it out for my favorite.

    But, Lo! A new contender has risen! Unfortunately, I can't find this version to download through any legal portals.

    For comedy, I love Relient K's "12 Days of Christmas" rendition and "Uncle John" by two guys named John.

    So many! The Relient K track Adam mentioned, and in fact that whole album.

    Many versions of the Big Star song Jesus Christ - my favourite is the definitive version by The Family Cat,
    but I can't find that one so I'll have to share Kristin Hersh for your enjoyment.


    But honestly, it's just not Christmas until you've seen this:
