  • Christmas songs

    My kids have been learning Christmas carols at school and I'm under pressure to put together a CD of Xmas songs for the coming fortnight.
    My immediate reaction is always to simply reach for this . . .



    But I figure there must be plenty of other Xmas-related goodness out there.
    I'm very very partial to this particular take on SILENT NIGHT:



    But will gladly take any other suggestions on the theme.
    To infinity - and beyond!

      I love Basement 5 - Last White Christmas

      Spirit Duplicator—collectable, charming, affordable... and also socially networked on FB / Twitter / Instagram.

              This is my favourite Christmas song. Godawful video but it seems to be the only one on youtube
              "You don't want to kill the cash donkey"

                      I like to pull out the Arthur Lyman christmas album, Mele Kalikimaka. Lots of standards on there.



                      Also the Beach Boys Christmas album.

                            Kurtis Blow's Christmas Rapping (on moogaloo's list above) is terrific. He's a master of rubbish rhyming couplets, "and the girls got some presents too, a new TV and a STERIOO" class.

                              He was roly, he was poly, and I said, "Holy moly!
                              You got a lot of whiskers on your chinny chin chin"
                              He allowed he was proud of the hairy little crowd
                              On the point of his jaw where the skin should've been


                              Rubbish? That´s one of the best lyrics rap has ever produced.
