What would the holidays be without our beloved Christmas music lineup? I'm old school - I prefer the ones sang by the artists that I grew up with, with some exceptions.
I detest the Stevie Nick's version of Silent Night. In fact, she could promise me a silent night by not singing that song at all.
I always get so sad when I hear Karen Carpenters, Merry Christmas Darling. Am I sad because she is now dead? Suffered for years with anorexia nervosa? Or that it brings up an old love? She really did have a beautiful voice.
I just read where Mariah Carey's, All I Want For Christmas Is You, just hit the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10 for First Time. Ever. Times are changing. My sons had it BAD for her when they were young. I enjoy the song and sing it every time I hear it.
My all-time favorite is the Nat King Cole version of Oh Holy Night. If I wasn't already a Christian, I would convert. That song, the way he sang it, brings me to my knees and gives me chills.
