My friend, Craig over at The Constant Complainer posed this question last week and complained about the song "The Christmas Shoes". We agreed that song makes us want to hang ourselves. So depressing. I thought this topic was just perfect for my Feedback Friday this week.
My least favorite Christmas song is anything sung by The Chipmunks. You know, Alvin, Simon, THEADORE! Unfortunately, these songs fall on my kids' favorite list. Go figure.
The thing about Christmas songs is that they make me cry when I try to sing along. (I share this strange quirk with Lori from What's After 29?). So, that is usually how I judge my fave. Crying? Check! Love it!
As a child, my favorite song was "Go Tell it on the Mountain" My mom had it on an old Christmas record sung by a Gospel choir,(it was pretty hilarious to see a 7 year old go all gospel, I'm sure). Here is a more mellow version sung here by Sweet Baby James:
My favorite traditional song is "Do You Hear What I Hear". Listen to the Carpenters (LOVE the Carpenters even in this crazy psychedelic video):
My favorite contemporary Christmas song is "Mary Did You Know". I swear this song makes me sob! I listen to the words and can't help but think of my three sons and all their potential. Here it is sung by the great Kenny Rogers:
So, tell me, what is your favorite and least favorite Christmas song???
