Holiday Music revisited...for the non-haters

Most Christmas music does get old when I have to listen to it over and over in every store. However these songs never get old to me, I can listen to them over and over (ducking and hiding LOL) What are your favorites.

    I love lots of these! I swore I wouldn't post until after Thanksgiving about X-mas music. ;)

    For me the classic stuff that brings me back to being a kid is the Charlie Brown X-mas and Nat King Cole. I also like alot of jazz and 50's remakes.

    Here's a few I like that are more modern.

    Dido- Christmas Day

    Joni Mitchell- River

    The Waitresses- Christmas Wrapping

    Billy Squier- Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You

    U2- Baby Please Come Home

    Norah Jones- Peace

    I don't celebrate Christmas, but "This Christmas", sung by Donny Hathaway and I forget what choir sings "The Little Drummer Boy", but they both always bring tears to my eyes. That and any version of "A Christmas Carol" that comes on tv or in the movies. I just saw the latest CGI animated one in the movies with my kid, and it always makes me cry. I'm just a mushy softy, I guess. And I miss my grandma and mom.

    I love all Christmas music (except maybe the barking dog jingle bells song). Especially love the really religious ballad type songs like Ave Maria. Odd, since I'm an atheist, but I love churches too so I guess I'm just into religious stuff minus the actual religion. : )
    I also love any Xmas music sung in Italian.
    And any xmas song done by Trans Siberian Orchestra.

    I like the "A Very Special Christmas" CD that has Madonna singing Santa Baby, Whitney Houston singing "Do You Hear What I Hear?", Springsteen singing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", etc. I like that it's fun to listen to and some of the songs are so pretty. I can listen to that over and over. And I don't even celebrate Christmas. I know there have been other releases of "A Very Special Christmas" but I haven't heard them.

    One of my favorite renditons of "O Holy Night" is by the Christian group Point of Grace:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY_xKdI_beU

    Barenaked Ladies' "Jingle Bells" is guaranteed for a giggle:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvFURcDMXfk

    I also love all the old English carols, like Coventry Carol and Wessex Carol. They're so haunting and pretty. I also love Handel's Messiah. It makes me wish I were an opera singer.

    Charlie Brown Christmas CD is my all-time favorite. It's Christmasy but doesn't make me want to tear my ears off after 20 minutes. :) It's mostly jazz instrumental but has a few vocals by the "cartoon kids."

    Nat King Cole also is excellent. Love his voice!

    I haven't heard it, but Bela Fleck and the Flecktones' CD Jingle All the Way gets great reviews and won a Grammy this year. (I know some people sneer at Grammy awards -- too commercial, I guess -- but still ... it's not a bad thing to win a Grammy).

    OMG, how could I have forgotten this one??? "The Little Drummer" by Whiteheart (a Christian band in the vein of Stryper...they were popular in the late 80s/early 90s) It's hilariously awesome!! Seriously, skip to the last minute if you don't want to listen to the whole thing...the best part is the "me and my drum" at the end.
