Music Monday: Christmas Time is Here

As the song says, "It's that time of year, when the world falls in love, everyone song you hear seems to say, Merry Christmas may your new year's dreams come true..."
And it is! I love this song...and there are a few other slightly not too traditional songs that I love that only get played this time of year...
Here is my list of fun Christmas tunes...
1. The Chairman of the Board would like to serenade you this Christmas. Frank Sinatra's rendition of the "Christmas Waltz" is one of my favorite Christmas songs ever. His voice is of my other favorite voices, Johnny Mathis.


Amy Grant's "Grown Up Christmas List" is such a pretty song. I turn up the radio every time it comes on. It's a nice reminder that the holiday season is about the well being of others and spending it among the people who love you.


Who doesn't like to belt out along with George Michael on this 80's classic of a Christmas Tune? Wham's "Last Christmas" is a staple at our holiday gatherings. It's hands down one of my favorites!


Last but most certainly not least is Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" . I like to refer to this as to when "Mimi had a voice"...doesn't her voice sound a little wispy and airy these days compared to her Tony Matola days? Anyhow--- I love this song! It's fun and lively...just a great hit!

So there you have it. Some of my favorite (and poppier) Christmas songs. I hope you are in a good Christmas mood and enjoy this (as Frank would say) "most wonderful time of the year". Any favorites on your list?


  1. That mariah song makes me scream from the mountain tops/sing loudly in my car.

  2. I love anything Sinatra and the new Michael Buble Christmas cd is wonderful. Thanks for visiting our dessert buffet at Hampton Hostess!!

  3. I love Santa Claus is coming to town by The Four Seasons

  4. It's not the holidays if I don't hear those last two songs!
