Debating Christmas songs

The great Christmas song debate started today. Do you love traditional Christmas songs or contemporary Christmas music?

I personally love the older, more traditional songs. I also think it matters who sings these songs as I love: “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” by Johnny Cash and “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby.

Other favorites are:

“Silent Night” by Johnny Cash.

“Away in The Manger” by Gene Autry.

“Christmas” (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love

“O Little Town Of Bethlehem.”

“O Holy Night” by Nat King Cole.

“Fairytale of New York” by the Pogues with Kristy MacColl.

“What Child Is This” by Johnny Mathis.

“Little Drummer Boy” by Johnny Cash.

“The Gifts They Gave” by Johnny Cash.

“Do You Hear What I Hear” by Martina McBride.

“Grown-Up Christmas List” by Amy Grant.

“Carol Of The Bells” by Mannheim Steamroller.

“Jingle Bell Rock” by Brenda Lee.

“Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer” by Burl Ives.

“Frosty The Snowman” by Jimmy Durante.

“Baby it’s Cold Outside” by Rosemary Clooney and Bing Crosby.

“The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole.

“Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley.

“Let It Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow” by Dean Martin.

“Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt.

I am sure I may be missing a few other great Christmas songs and as so many artists have covered all of these amazing songs that I will leave it with you to choose who your favorite renditions are sung by because each era has their favorites.

What are yours?

Maybe “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” by Elmo & Patsy?
