Ten Christmas Songs


To get you into the holiday spirit, I want to share some of my favorite Christmas songs. I might be doing this again next week, and every Thursday through Christmas, because there are just so many good ones. And I’m having trouble coming up with Thursday Tens… But let’s begin:

  • The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) – Nat King Cole

  • It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year – Andy Williams

  • Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee

  • Jingle Bell Rock – Bobby Helms

  • Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer – Gene Autry

  • Feliz Navidad – José Feliciano

  • Frosty The Snowman: The cartoon version from 1953. Still my favorite version of the song.

  • Sleigh Ride – The Ventures: Sounds like a mash-up with “Walk, Don’t Run.”

  • I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus – The Ronettes

  • Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth – Bing Crosby and David Bowie: I used to think this was a bit strange, but they sound great together, and at least David didn’t show up as Ziggy Stardust…

And that is your Thursday Ten for December 4, 2014.

  1. Nat King Cole’s version of the Christmas Song is my favorite of all time. It’s not Christmas until I hear that song. My mother had the album, yes an actual round, vinyl album. We wore that thing out!


  2. These are some good ones. Some of them are on my holiday play list. Sleigh Ride is my favorite Christmas song, but I like that one with words. LOL. David Bowie and Bing Crosby. Quite an interesting duo. I was so surprised that it sounded so good. I’ve always loved them singing The Little Drummer Boy.
