I have a few favorites. "Little Drummer Boy" being a main one.
Also "Merry Xmas, Everybody" by Slade.

I like diversity with my Christmas music. :)

    Little Drummer Boy for me as well for the classics. Wizards of Winter and Christmas Eve/Sarajevo by the Trans Siberian Orchestra for the modern songs.

    I do love "Do You Hear What I Hear?" it is really lovely

    And another old classic that is so gorgeous is "O Holy Night". The chorus gives me shivers when sung by a great singer, just so moving and beautiful.

    I honestly don't know "Last Christmas", @SharkBait. Who wrote it or sang it?
    (Just reminds me of the current Dr. Who episode with the same title; I really enjoy it!)

    Fairytale of New York.

    Everything else comes second.

    I don't know that song either. Care to elaborate for me? :)

    :) I am a world away removed, you know.
    OK, I will head to YouTube soon.

    Got it. So, I only remember this one vaguely, I suppose I remember the chorus the most.
    There are, I am sorry to say, plenty of great Christmas songs heard in the UK that I am still mostly unaware of.

    There are so many that I enjoy, but "Last Christmas" by Wham really does it for me.

    Ah, that was Wham! I'll look that one up, too. :)

    It's a very, I guess, kinda sad song, but it's so fun to sing along to.

    Poignant can be very meaningful at Christmastime.
  • Gosh. Too many to name, really. But I especially like O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Do You Hear What I Hear, It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Carol of the Bells, We Three Kings of Orient Are and Christmas Time Is Here.

    Great call. The lyrics are slightly daft, but the song brings out my inner Yuletide Bond, even in the middle of June.

    What Child Is This/Greensleeves. Not a big fan of most Christmas music, but I do really enjoy the classics being sung by Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis.

    Yes, this is brilliant. I love the whole album and start playing it as soon as December rolls round.

    It's maybe not a proper Christmas song, but Simon & Garfunkel's 7 O'Clock News/Silent Night is powerful stuff.

    Agreed @Agent_99 it's a very powerful song.

    As do I. People think I'm insane, but I dig Dylan so much and it's so different it's a holiday must.

    Happy Xmas (War is Over) is my all-time favorite Christmas song and the Beatles Christmas fan club disc compilation also gets a lot of spins.

    Christmas music isn't what it once was. Growing up in the 60s and 70s, the Christmas pop song was as traditional as Christmas Turkey and cranberry sauce. Back then I especially liked Elton John's: Step into Christmas; Wizzard's: I Wish it Could Be Christmas Every Day. And hey, let's not forget Shakin Steven's classic early 80's No.1 hit, Merry Christmas Everyone, which was surprisingly good for a Crimbo song.

    Seems like a good time for a bump.

    Lots of great choices here -- and of course, Happy XMas/War is Over is a big part of my own personal repertoire this time of year -- but in the modern spirit of the season, here's Father Christmas by the Kinks.
