I’m not a big fan of Christmas music. It kind of puts me in a bad mood most of the time – maybe because they start playing it before Halloween. There’s just so many times I can hear Jingle Bell Rock before I want to shoot myself in the head – twice is about my limit. And don’t get me started on Little Drummer Boy – those “pa rompa bom boms” make me want to dig out my eardrums. But there are a few songs I like – mostly guilty pleasures, because most of them are of questionable origin. So I’ve decided to make my own playlist of Christmas songs, the ones I can listen to and enjoy.Wham!: Last Christmas. I can usually get away with this one, because everyone else likes it, too. Band Aid: Do They Know It’s Christmas. Cheesy, but again, most people like this song. New Kids On The Block: This Boy’s Letter to Santa Clause. Don’t laugh!! Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 (often misnamed “Carol of the Bells”) Santa Baby (I think Eartha Kitt’s version is the best) Mariah Carey: All I Want for Christmas is You. Possibly the sole Mariah song I like. Jimmy Buffet: Christmas in the Caribbean. Hm…palm trees or snow…tough decision…. Jose Feliciano: Feliz Navidad. Prospero ano y felizidad. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – not sure I have a favorite artist. Winter Wonderland – again, not sure I have a favorite artist.
