NOTE: This post was originally published last year. Moving it it to the top because of the time of year.
The holiday season is the time of year when I would normally be talking about that “chill in the air.” However, with the reality of climate change,, that is not the case for many people. One thing that is consistent with this time of year are classic Christmas songs.
There are an abundance of wonderful Christmas songs. From the obscure to the over-played staples of popular culture, we all have our favorites. As I stared working on this post, I realized that narrowing my choice down to five songs would be a difficult task.
Here is my list (with one Bonus Track.) What are your favorites?
John Prine: Christmas in Prison
Jim White: Christmas Day
Bill Haley and the Comets: Jingle Bell Rock
Barking Dogs: Jingle Bells
Elvis Presley: Blue Christmas
Bonus Track below the fold
Bonus: Elvis Presley Santa Claus is Back in Town
