Christmas Music (all genres)

What are your favourite Xmas songs/tunes/pieces of music? I want to make up a new Xmas CD for 2016 and need some ideas.

I like many kinds of music, from classical (Hely-Hutchinson's Christmas Symphony, traditional choir-sung carols), through jazz & show-tunes, to rock and pop, including the cheesy stuff!

There's probably an ancient thread about this somewhere already, but my search didn't find it.

At some point, someone will be "The only one I like is Fairytale of New York"

That's you that is.

What are people's more famous 'must-haves' and are there any less well known little gems out there?

RoscoePColtrane - 04 Dec 2015 12:15:16 (#4 of 213)

Wizzard is the only Christmas song you need.

At some point, someone will be "The only one I like is Fairytale of New York"

Then Tommy will turn up to stick up for early Cliff Richard and an obscure Nolan Sisters b-side

Hark the Herald Angels Sing by The Fall

TRaney - 04 Dec 2015 12:17:51 (#7 of 213)

I like the cheesy S&G version of Silent Night

#5 funny you should say that...

Nah, obscure ones worth trying out are;

  • Florin Street Band - My Favourite Time of Year


  • Blackmore's Night - Christmas Eve


  • Twisted Sister - Oh Come All Ye Faithful


For more traditional stuff, the Albion Christmas Band.

That one by that bloke who was in a band before.

fenderstrat - 04 Dec 2015 12:28:17 (#10 of 213)

Sounded a bit, you know.

TommyDGNR8 - 04 Dec 2015 12:29:39 (#11 of 213)

You mean Ronan Keating's Fairytale of New York, fender?

fenderstrat - 04 Dec 2015 12:30:10 (#12 of 213)

Heh!

No.

I tried to find a YouTube performance of In Dulci Jubilo but they're all way too slow.

It's the best known cure for the folk referenced in #1 above.

TRaney - 04 Dec 2015 12:32:11 (#16 of 213)

I have a big soft spot for When A Child Is Born

fenderstrat - 04 Dec 2015 12:32:12 (#17 of 213)

That's the one.

RosyLovelady - 04 Dec 2015 12:34:17 (#19 of 213)

Elizabeth Poston's Apple Tree carol is another right tear-jerker.

fenderstrat - 04 Dec 2015 12:34:25 (#20 of 213)

Christmas in Paradise. Genius.
