Merry Christmas

 There are songs we all think about as Christmas nears. White Christmas, The Christmas song, Jingle Bells, and so many others. I listen to them all because I love Christmas music. At the same time I have favorites and often the artists who sing them. Still I have some favorites for you. See which ones you like.

O Holy Night by the Vienna Boys Choir

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by either Bruce Springsteen or Michael Jackson

Merry Bloody XMas by The Irish Rovers

Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano

Yellin' At The Christmas Tree by Billy Idol

Santa Baby (both 1 and 2) by Eartha Kitt

Happy Christmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon

Blue Christmas by both Elvis and Porky Pig

Santa Claus Is Watching You by Ray Stevens

Snoopy's Christmas by the Royal Guardsmen

Mrs Fogarty's Christmas Cake by The Irish Rovers

The Night Santa Went Crazy by Weird Al Yankovic

There's Something Stuck Up In The Chimney by Bob Rivers

Santa's Comin' In A Whirlybird by Gene Autry

Bad Little Boy by Ray Stevens

That is enough I suppose. Each of these songs should be available on YouTube if you wish to hear them.
