Re: One of my favorite Christmas songs

@KittySoftPaws, I love Mannheim Steamroller! I have several of their CDs and play them every year. Their music never gets old. Neither does Elvis. Christmas was his favorite time of the year.

Re: One of my favorite Christmas songs

I like the Andy Williams Christmas album from the 1960s.  He had a very different verision of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"  It was something like "four colored lights, three boughs of holly, two candy candy canes and a song for the Christmas tree". It went all the way to twelve like the original but with different lyrics.

I like to listen to Mannheim Steamroller, Elvis, The Brian Setzer Orchestra. He's the singer from Stray Cats.

Re: One of my favorite Christmas songs

I love so many Christmas songs, from those of the 50s and 60s I grew up with to some of the newer renditions. I have to hear Elvis' "Blue Christmas" to start out; it immediately brings tears because I always miss my mother so much at this, her favorite time of year. After I hear it the first time in the season, I'm ready to hear the rest. As someone mentioned, Eartha Kitts' "Santa Baby" is the best, all the others grate on me. I like Robert Downey Jr's "The River", not really a Christmas tune but guess since it mentions Christmas, it becomes one. I love his voice. I always sprinkle in some bluegrass, Cajun, and old classical tunes. I look forward to Black Friday because that's generally when I decorate my home and start playing my Christmas playlist!

 

I liked Billy Squier a lot but never knew of this song; will surely check it out. Thanks for the suggestion!

@ECBG Heres the thing about Dean Martin: That glass was iced tea or gingerale. It was all a prop.

The cigarettes: I am old enough to remember people having cigarette boxes on the coffee table. That was long before we knew about the dangers. Watch the film "The Insider" w/Russell Crow. 

 And in those days a carton of cigarettes would be a great gift for some one that did a favor for you.

We have so many favs in our house. One of which is (I know I am misspelling) Mele Kalikemaka by Bing Crosby.
