    I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas. I love the music and festivities and the egg nog, don't care too much for the family shit.

    My favorite songs are:

    Happy X-Mass- John Lennon

    Please Come Home For Christmas-The Eagles

    Blue Christmas-Elvis Presley

    I like all of the traditional songs, especialy when the members of the rat pack sing them.

    I like Elvis' take on traditionals too. Bing Crosby's take also.

    I haven't heard Bob Seger's version of Little Drummer Boy for years, and forgot what a brilliant version it is. Thanks for posting it, RJ!

    Kestra, it's brilliant to see you posting again, but I'm afraid I flat-out refused to listen to your recommendation. I love Christmas kitch, but I have my limits. :lol: ;)

    I recently purchased Annie Lennox's new Christmas album, and highly recommend it. However, Loreena McKennitt does my favourite version of this song:

    Classic FM has now started adding seasonal tunes into their rotation and the little tune below came up on the drive home today and made me feel really quite festive! :)

    ^^ Two of the classic stations on my car's presets have been all-Christmas since at least a week before Thanksgiving. I'm long sick of this stuff already. :rommie:

    Ok, let's leave orchestral behind, and let Mannheim Steamroller do their thing with Mendelssohn instead... (plus, with this vid, you can watch a pretty good Audiosurf player do his thing too...)
