OK

Little St Nick - The Beach Boys (I saw a heading somewhere: "Little St Nick Surpasses Stairway to Heaven As Most Annoying Overplayed Song. I'm still fond of it)

Full Measure - Lovin' Spoonful (what Christmas is all about)

The full measure of your giving

You don't yet understand

A cupful of living

That you hold in your hand

The full weight of your loving

Makes me lighter than air

The tax I'm receiving

Now I know that it never was there

It started off just stickin' around

To get that wonderful feeling from you

Now there's finally someone telling me

I can really give too

I know you know the feeling

That getting something for nothing is wrong

Getting love is so easy

Giving love takes so long

I've heard them say it at Christmas

Now I can say it to you

The feeling of giving

Is as good as I'm getting from you

It's as good as I'm getting from you

Thank you Farin, I will! :) I like my Christmas traditional. No veering of in odd directions. So, I will be pretty boring here. The two top commercial Christmas Songs, but still, my favorites.

White Christmas ~ Bing Crosby

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer ~ Gene Autry

White Christmas--The Drifters

Only because it's the favorite Christmas song of a sportswriter for a local newspaper, who never gets to hear it on the radio around Christmas time! Every year he always complains about this!

Blue Christmas--Elvis Presley

If God Would Send His Angels - U2

They released this song as a Christmas single. I know there aren't too many fans here, but give it a listen if you can :)

This isn't the video for it... it's some Final Fantasy thing. The actual video wasn't loading, but pay attention to the song!

Nobody else here baby

No one here to blame

No one to point the finger

It's just you and me and the rain

(This verse not on the City of Angels soundtrack.)

Nobody made you do it

No one put words in your mouth

Nobody here taking orders

When love took a train heading south

It's the blind leading the blond

It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

Hey if God will send his angels

And if God will send a sign

And if God will send his angels

Would everything be alright?

God has got his phone off the hook, babe

Would he even pick up if he could

It's been a while since we saw that child

Hanging 'round this neighbourhood

You see his mother dealing in a doorway

See Father Christmas with a begging bowl

And Jesus sister's eyes are a blister

The High Street never looked so low

It's the blind leading the blond

It's the cops collecting for the cons

So where is the hope and where is the faith

And the love...what's that you say to me

Does love...light up your Christmas Tree

The next minute you're blowing a fuse

And the cartoon network turns into the news

If God will send his angels

And if God will send a sign

Well if God will send his angels...

Where do we go?

Where do we go?

Jesus never let me down

You know Jesus used to show me the score

Then they put Jesus in show business

Now it's hard to get in the door, angel

It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

But I guess it was something to go on

If God will send his angels

Sure could use them here right now

Well if God would send his angels

(And I might not want my life)

(I want my lover feel my soul) / So where do we go?

(And I want my love and I)

(And I want to feel alone) / So where do we go?

How?

(Sing my song)

(Sing my song)

(Sing my song)

(Sing my song)

and

Do they know it's Christmastime - Band-Aid

Someone had to do it ;)

The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yule-tide carols being sung by a choir

And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey

and some mistletoe

Help to make the season bright

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way

He's loaded lots of toys

and goodies on his sleigh

And every mother's child is gonna spy

To see if reindeer

really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety-two

Although it's been said

many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you.

Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms
