Christmas Carols

Monday, December 12, 2011

Just about everyone has their list of favorites, so here’s my top 10 list:
10. Here Comes Santa Claus
9. Little Drummer Boy (Bing Crosby and David Bowie)
8. Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (Bruce Springsteen version)
7. I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas
6. I’ll Be Home for Christmas
5. O Come All Ye Faithful
4. Joy to the World
3. Silent Night
2. O Holy Night
1. Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Over-rated are:
In Excelsis Deo
The First Noel
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Deck the Halls
We Wish You a Merry Christmas
Jingle Bells

Do you share my opinion or have I ticked you off with my over-rated list ?

I should add Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas from the Family". About the dysfunctional family who mixes the egg nog with margaritas and bloody marys. Not exactly the "reason for the season", but pretty humorous.
