My Favorites…

Christmas edition.

Y’all… I know I’m going overboard on the Christmas stuff but I just absolutely love this holiday so much and I’d totally be that crazy lady who leaves her Christmas tree up all year if I could get away with it. But, y’all, I can’t get away with it. I already start listening to the music in October each year and no I don’t subject it to those around me. I listen to regular music when I’m in the car with other people, etc. I just can’t get enough of everything surrounding this holiday.

So, today I’m going to list all my favorite versions of Christmas songs. As much as I like all the different groups and their different takes on the songs featured… these are my favorites.

  1. “Jingle Bells” and “Let It Snow” the Frank Sinatra versions of both are my favs. When he yells, “I DON’T CAHH” in “Let It Snow”? Classic.

    The only version of “Run Run Rudolph” I can stand is Jimmy Buffet’s.

    “In the Bleak Midwinter” – Paul Colman Trio, makes me cry.

    “Do You Hear What I Hear” – Johnny Mathis, he is one of the only singers who’s voice can carry this song. Its such a powerful song, and he has this HUGE, comforting voice. Bing Crosby’s is obviously great, but something about Johnny.

    “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” – Burl Ives. No need to explain this one.

    “When My Heart Finds Christmas” – Harry Connick Jr. I can’t listen to that song without crying.

    Oh my gahhhhh I could go on for daysssss…

    1. THIS is why I love you so much! I know that everyone reading this can totally tell that we are sisters… LOL. Great suggestions btw. I’m all about When My Heart Finds Christmas… SO GOOD. And yes, Frank is so good with just about any song… he always injects his own flair and it makes me laugh. I didn’t mention really any modern singers in this list because I could do a whole post on just contemporary Christian artists and their versions… Gloria by MercyMe is an absolute fav. So many good ones suggested, Ash, thanks for sharing!
