My Top 25 Christmas Songs of All Time–What are yours?

Dec 2, 2009 by

As you might think, I'm big into Christmas.  Always have been.  Part of Christmas to me also is the music that goes along with it.  I can honestly tell you that in the past 30-some-odd years, I've never put up the Christmas tree without playing Christmas Is… by The Percy Faith Orchestra.  I play the whole album and regard it as one of my favorites of all time.  1085261

So in my iTunes Playlists for Christmas, here are my top 25.  I encourage you to try each of them out if you don't already have them.  Which of the 25 is my absolute favorite?  Hm.  I really have no idea.  They're all pretty darned good.

1)  White Christmas, Bing Crosby

2) Do They Know It's Christmas, Band Aid

3)  We Need A Little Christmas, The Percy Faith Orchestra

4)  Sleigh Ride, KT Tunstall

5)  Winter Wonderland, Johnny Mathis

6)  Christmas in Dixie, Alabama

7) Blue Christmas, Cheryl Crowe

8) The Little Drummer Boy, The Harry Simeone Chroale

9) Happy Christmas, War Is Over, John Lennon

10)  All I Want For Christmas Is You, Mariah Carey

11)  Linus & Lucy, Vince Guaraldi Trio

12) Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reigndeer, Burl Ives

13)  Frosty The Snowman, Jimmy Durante

14)  You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch, The MGM Studio Orchestra

15) Merry Christmas Darling, The Carpenters

16)  His Yoke Is Easy, The Royal Philharmonic & Royal Choral Society

17) Wonderful Christmastime, Paul McCartney

18)  Christmas Is … The Percy Faith Orchestra

19)  Home For The Holidays, Perry Como

20)  All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth, The Chipmunks

21)  Maybe Next Year (X-Mas Song), Meiko

22) Baby It's Cold Outside, Tom Jones & Cerys Matthews

23) Tinsel Town, SHeDAISY

24)  Christmas Is Just Around The Corner, Barry Manilow

25)  The Chanukah Song, Adam Sandler

Again, the order of the songs is debatable.  But to me, any Christmas song playlist has to have these 25 in it to have the best of mixes.  Enjoy.
