Christmas Music Meme

So Morgen must have felt guilty for not tagging me for the Three meme and leaving me to be pathetic and self-tag; so he tagged me for this one.

Name your favorite Christmas Songs,
and tag some favorite Bloggers to Meme their favorites, too.

As I mentioned in the Three meme, my favorite Christmas album is John Denver & the Muppets: A Christmas Together. It is the absolute best! "The Christmas Wish," sung by Kermit the Frog, is great. The whole album is, really. We listened to it every Christmas when I was little. I had it on vinyl and now I buy it on cd for my nieces and all my friends with kids so they can grow up with it too.

I also love Amy Grant's three Christmas cds. She's got a new one out this year that's a "best of" compilation from the other three and it has most but not all of my favorites. My favorite song of hers is "Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song)."

I really like "Baby It's Cold Outside," and my favorite version is from the soundtrack to the movie "Elf." It's sung by Leon Redbone and Zooey Deschanel. I like "I've Got my Love to Keep Me Warm" by Dean Martin. I got a cd from Pier One maybe five years ago that has some great songs, "I'd like to Hitch a Ride with Santa Claus," "What are you Doing New Year's Eve," and "Winter Weather."

My newest favorite Christmas cd is Sarah McLachlan's Wintersong. I like the title track and "Song For A Winter's Night."

And I will tag Katie, Andria, and Neila.

That version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is my favorite, too! WRVR plays it quite a bit when they switch over to all Christmas music, so that's nice.

great meme!
I need to get the John Denver & the Muppets Christmas CD!
I love the Muppets Christmas Carol (... and no cheeses for us meeces!)

excellent choices!
glad I tagged ya

and that's so funny that you tagged Neila, because I was going to tag her, then typed your name instead!

I love Elf...of course I love anything with Will Ferrell, but that was one of his best. That is a good song too, itunes won't let me buy it, though, without buying the whole stinking album.

I will do this tomorrow...I am working on it.

Neila said...

Thanks for the tag! I will do this as my weekend meme. I don't know why I like to do memes on the weekend.

I love Wintersong, too, but I would love Sarah no matter what she sang!

I, too, love Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven." In fact, I've sung it at church on Christmas several times. I have, however, decided to stay away from it because the last time I sang it I got lost while singing it in front of 1100 people! My accompanist saved me there, but ironically, my girlfriend, who sang it the very next week, got lost in the very same spot! We have vowed to stay away from the song for now -- it's jinxed!

I'm on to Grant's "Christmas Hymn" now.
