If you have Pandora, look for Swingin’ Christmas. Big band, Sinatra and the like.

I always like Harry Connick Jr. But he’s one of my favorite crooners.

Also like the Andrews Sisters (trio). There is a good album with Bing Crosby.

And don’t forget the timeless Wham classic, Last Christmas*

HCJr is great, I'll definitely check out his Christmas stuff.

Wham is a good pick. Wake me up has always been a guilty pleasure. I'll save it for someday special.

That’s literally the only Wham song for Christmas and you will hear it in every f’in store at the mall...and on several commercials. That one was only out there to drive people on 11W crazy.

This year, to save all my tears...

Also, Big Bad Voodoo Daddies has a Christmas album that I enjoy. Great cover of Mr Heat Miser, and some other good tunes. Not every song is a smash, but I throw it in the rotation.

We're traveling this week and won't be back until after Thanksgiving. I packed a HCJ Christmas CD for the ride home. I love just about any song he sings!

What no gif to go with that barf? We could all use a little late-night stimuli.

Cute. Thanks. I'll also add "Dirty" by Christina to the Christmas playlist this year.

With your taste in music, I would go with Ella Fitzgerald and Michael Buble

Not one of my favorite acts, but the wife and daughter are big into Pentatonix. They play their Christmas album way too much for my liking.  Maybe it is up your alley.

HS
Urban Achiever's picture

Yes...thats one my wife plays often this time of year too. I try to tell myself I don't like it, but it is fun (oddly enough, our relationship with Nic Cage is very similar)

To me, even after all these years (decades), there's just no better compilation than the time life treasury of Christmas set.  Great songs by great artists, classics all of them.

I saw a Twisted Christmas on while channel surfing & thought it was going to be the funniest thing I had seen in a while.  I actually liked it.

Back in the '60's, this album came with several copies of the lyrics on loose-leaf. After Christmas dinner and presents, and a beverage or two for the adults, my whole family would sit in the living room, sharing the lyric sheets, and literally sing along with Mitch (and the Gang).

What we lacked in vocal talent, we made up for with enthusiasm and volume. Good times.

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

As easy as it is to recommend the standards (A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector is the best ever, full stop), one of my favorite Christmas records of late has been Over the Holidays and Under the Influence by Butch Walker. Dude basically got ripped with his bandmates and cut a Christmas record. It’s fucking magical.

If you don’t have this music, get it, and listen.  It’s just good jazz.

The Elvis Christmas Album is a family staple. One of our favorites.

Frank Sinatra Christmas album

One of my absolute favorites. Lincoln Brewster's "Miraculum." Very similar to some of Trans-Siberian's rocking stuff. This guy used to be the guitar player for Steve Perry. One of the best I've heard.

Yeah, he's a Christian performer and preacher.  I'm guessing he knows some of the TSO folks.  There's a ton of them.

I’m psycho about Christmas. If you have iHeartRadio you should look up big 106.5 it’s Dayton local radio, 24/7 Christmas music right now 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

If you are looking for funny Christmas songs I highly recommend the Dr. Demento Christmas Album. Complete with my favorite, "Santa Claus and His Old Lady" by Cheech & Chong :-P

If you’ve never heard this version of Little Drummer Boy, it’s incredible. And then you think that Bing Crosby invited David Bowie onto his Christmas show. Mind blown.

Phil Spector "A Christmas Gift for You". Brian Wilson thinks it's one of the greatest records ever.
