Hi all

Just want to find out which is your favourite Christmas song of all time?

Mine has to be I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake, closely followed by I Heard the Bells on Christmas day by John Gorka and Breath of Heaven by Melisa Manchester.

Sugden A21L amp, Naim CD5XS CDP, Chord Cobra3 i.c. and ProAc Studio 130 speakers.

There are probably three for me: traditional choices would be Silent Night and Once in Royal David's City, while contemporary would The Waitresses' "Christmas Rapping". Not a duffer in sight!

Perhaps it can't compete with the classics but check this out - cheesy seasonal fun for a local charity "Hallam FM Cash for Kids appeal"

Let it Snow

this isn't spam - some mates of mine created this round at my house, the video is down my local pub etc. I'm even on the backing vocals at the end!


You can't be too serious...

chebby:

"Once in Royal David's City" as sung every year at the beginning of the 'Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols' from Kings college on Christmas Eve.

And "For Unto us a Child is Born" from 'The Messiah' (every Christmas morning before everyone else gets up.)

Pure class Chebby!

In terms of traditional tunes, I love "In the bleak mid winter" and "Gabriel's Message"

Even though i don't celebrate Christmas(Saturnalia) myself i can't deny a penchant for a good seasonal tune.

My preferences are:

The Pogues & Kirsty McColl(the late & great) - Fairytale of New York.

Jona Lewie - Stop the Cavalry.

Regards.

BABUR.

Phil Spector's Christmas Album is a fave in our household. He may be a bad wig wearing murderer, but he sure can mix a wonderful winterland wall of sound !
