Best Christmas Song

Recommended Posts

No-one else has said it, so this one's my favourite, perfect Christmas song and so much musical content

I also really like this cover, Turner really evokes the spirit of the lyrics

You are missing something.

Ignore the picture, the link is to Dio sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman.

 

 

 

Which is definitely a Christmas song.

You mean this. 

I didn't get this last post. I had Highway Star and War Pigs when i watched it.

Not heard Dio doing this and i'm a bit of a Dio fan too.

Liking it @mcdaddy

It's not a song (at least not yet, maybe I'll write it tomorrow)

Worst time of year. I can't wait to see the back of it! 

Then why comment

Because it's a public forum were the whole point of the site existing is for people to communicate. 

If people don't comment then the site ceases to exist. 

If you don't like tongue in cheek comments, then you're probably on the wrong forum.

Doesn't come across as tongue in cheek.

perhaps you are looking at the wrong threads

Yup. That's me. 

2000 plus posts and 11 days won. 

I'm a proper troll. 

I won't tie up the thread by commenting further. 

Good night!

My wife is a big Barry Manilow Fan - I have offered to pay for therapy.  I like the songs of Joni Mitchell.  Put the two together and add some festive tinsel and you get this;

@Graham’s Mariah recommendation reminded me of this one we used to do quite often in our Christmas service.  Great fun to play on bass, especially when it goes full on gospel after the false ending. 

We would often have the singer, Miquel Brown, guesting with us - she’s got an amazing gospel voice. That was a lot of fun!

Absolutely no doubt about the best Christmas song ever

but I also love Christmas At The Zoo (Flamin Lips) and Christmas Card From A Hooker In Mineappolis (Tom Waits)

I thought I had posted this before but it has not appeared.  The lyrics were written by stand-up comedian Mark Lowry with music by Buddy Greene.  It gets me every time.

Amazing the number of Xmas songs we've had over the years. Some real crackers i've never heard too.

This. I like the concept of anti-commercialism, and love the Prokofiev excerpt.

 

This is  the ONLY christmas pop song I still like .after so many years. I'm not the world's biggest classical fan by any stretch but the piece the excerpt is from  -Lt Kije - is a cracker.. but... this is numero uno for me
