There is a radio station in our city that plays endless Christmas music from November through January. It drives me nuts that they don’t wait until after Thanksgiving. I never met a Christmas song I didn’t like. I just like them after I’ve had my turkey and eaten it too.
Now though? All bets are off. I’ve got that sucker blasting Little Drummer Boy until the Davester can’t take it anymore.
The only thing I can’t listen to is the songs with the military “merry Christmas to everyone at home” dubbed over the top. I was cooking dinner the other night and I started sobbing until Dave switched it. I mean, our military members give up so much and all of those sweet wishes for friends and family back home, it really hits you what they are sacrificing.
It turns me into an ugly crier.
On to my favorites!
Wham!’s Last Christmas: Pretty much the cheesiest, most ridiculous, totally 80s song ever written and I know every single word.
The Waitresses’ Christmas Wrapping: The second most cheesy, pop song that makes you want to dance around in your kitchen when no one is looking.
The Chipmunk’s Christmas Song: Um. Yes. And it makes me want to sing at the top of my lungs, “Me? I want a Hula Hoooooop!” Also a favorite of Finnegan and Tate and almost everyone under ten.
Un Flambeau Jeanette Isabelle: This is an old French carol that I fell in love with in high school. The English translation version isn’t half as pretty.
Josh Groban’s version of Oh, Holy Night: Chills every time.
I could go on like this for ages. There are so many to choose from, it’s hard to pick!
Tell me your favorite!
