Christmas Music

My Top Five Favorite Christmas Songs:

1. All I Want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey
I just found out she also co-wrote this song, although I have no idea what level of involvement that indicates. Does anyone else remember the video with her playing in the snow in a Santa suit/dress? I used to love that.

2. Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting
How can you not love this song? So cute. I always liked the line “My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious… Well maybe just a half a drink more,” for some unknown reason. I think it’s because I didn’t know what a maiden aunt was, but I thought it was funny to describe someone’s mind as vicious.

3. All That I Want – The Weepies
I first heard this song on a JCPenney Christmas commercial, then my cousin Jen put it on her annual Christmas mix CD. It’s fabulous.

4. I Saw Three Ships – Sting
Both songs 4 and 5 are a testament to the voices and musical abilities of their singers. I normally don’t like religious Christmas songs, but Sting really does a bang up job on this one.

5. I Pray on Christmas – Harry Connick, Jr.
Harry Connick, Jr. doesn’t have a bad Christmas song, if you ask me. The poor man was just born a few decades late. This is one of my faves, though. Really a cool doo-wop song.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

  1. Whoa, new blog look. I like the snow.

    I just had to take a moment to confess to the world (or the readers of this blog) that Mariah Carey “Merry Christmas” was the first CD I ever owned. I got a CD player from Christmas from Aunt and Uncle S + T along with that CD, and then you, Meg, and your mom and I went to Target and she bought me Boyz II Men “II”…yep, I am sweet. And I still have both.

    I find it interesting, TF, that this is the first time you’ve been compelled to comment. And that you feel so strongly about Mariah Carey.

    What can I say? After Glitter (, I think Mariah Carey should have been voted off. And yes, I did take the time to Google a trailer for Glitter. THATs how strongly I feel about MC making your list. :)
