Friday random ten: Yes, there are Christmas songs I like

Quite a few of them, really. Here are ten from my collection:

1. Another Christmas Song – Stephen Colbert
2. Blue Christmas – Asylum Street Spankers
3. Christmas Wrapping – The Waitresses
4. The Eleven Cats of Christmas – Trout Fishing In America
5. Fairytale of New York – The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl
6. Go Tell It On The Mountain – Christmas On The Border
7. Happy Christmas (War Is Over) – John Lennon & Yoko Ono
8. Linus and Lucy – Vince Guaraldi Trio
9. Mele Kalikimaka/Waters of Babylon – The Preistess and The Fool
10. Mr. Heatmiser – Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

“Go Tell It On The Mountain” is one of my favorite religious Christmas songs – it’s underrated and greatly underused. As for “Linus and Lucy”, it’s my considered opinion that it’s the best known jazz song in the world. Play just about any part of it to anyone, and they’ll know it. What are your favorites?

    I like Stevie Wonder’s Someday at Christmas, although it is a bit melancholy.
