I always wonder how many of these are actually real.....
This poignant song by Mark Knopfler stirs the Christmas spirit in me:
Charles Brown singing " Merry Christmas Baby" c'mon how great is this song?
Harry Simone Chorale "Little Drummer Boy"
George Frederic Handel's "Messiah"
Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Bing, Carpenters, and so many others...
I look forward to “Jul med Hep Stars” all year!
Even though I've always been a Beatles fanatic, I prefer Hilary Duff's 2003 cover. She and her producers turn it into Hollywood pop-punk, but I think it works. For me, anyway.
I'm not sure there's any one song or album I HAVE to hear every year but I usually end up digging out this chestnut from Utterly Utterly Live sometime around Christmastime:
Nana - Old Toy Trains
It isn't Christmas until I hear Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys, on the radio preferably although anywhere I encounter it outside my own stereo system is fine.
Keef's - Run Rudolph Run
Charles Brown's 'Please Come Home For Christmas' (no Eagles, please).
It is just not Christmas without this classic Living Stereo album from 1959 by the highly underrated John Klein. I had a small hand in getting this released and remastered for CD by Real Gone Music, along with Mr. Klein's splendid follow-up holiday album from 1964. I also wrote the liner notes for this one of a kind album that features almost 1500 bronze caste bells and a stellar Billy May inspired orchestra.
...Mark E. Smith
The Fall - Xmas with Simon
...Ron "Pigpen" McKernan
The Grateful Dead - "Run Rudolph Run"
Kenny G Miracles
The Absolute King of all Xmas music...
Sufjan Stevens!!! Both Box Sets!!
And my fave holiday song ever- "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" by John Lennon!!!
...Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings
This has been one of my favorites for a long time.This would be playing when my daughter was much younger,as we decorated the tree each year.
