  • Favorite Christmas/holiday music.

    It's been awhile since I've bought or found a really good holiday recording.

    What are your favorites and what media are they on? What is on everyone's must have list?

    The Reign of Kindo
    Dave Barnes
    Sister Hazel
    Relient K

    Those are some of my favorites. Of course, I'm not into a lot of the music that guys reference on here, so these artists may not be your style either. I like 'em though!

        Well I love Sinatra's Christmas songs, but I think Trans-Siberian Orchestra takes the cake in the awesome Christmas music category.

                  I have a bunch of holiday CD's, the wife only allows me to play Christmas music between Thanksgiving and New Years

                  Last year, after the holidays, I started putting together a Grooveshark playlist, need to get back on it and finish it. Got distracted by all the other "great music" threads.

                  Here is one: http://grooveshark.com/playlist/Xmas...call-to-action

                  And another: http://grooveshark.com/playlist/Xmas...call-to-action

                  Enjoy!

                    John Fahey's acoustic guitar instrumental Christmas album
                    and the Merry Axemas all guitarists compilation which is really good . The version of O Little Town Of Bethlehem by Robin Trower really shines .
                    The only clinker is the track by Ted Nugent , rest are excellent .
                    +1 on the Vince Guaraldi Charlie Brown Christmas album

                      The track Carolina Christmas is a fun one to listen to when downing some nog.

                        Unless you absolutely hate Bluegrass, and even if you do, this is a nice little gem. Full digital recording (in Jackson Hole I believe).

                            A little rough at times, but at least it comes from the heart. ;)

                            I really like Rockapella's Christmas CD. The covers are really good, and the originals are exceptional! (Those who like to audition their speakers with a capella music might want to check this out as well)

                            Also, Merry Axemas is a good disc.
                            Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                              The Christmas Song - Raveonettes

                              From "Christmas With The Kranks" - 2004
                              Tim Allen - Jamie Lee Curtis

                              Fairly funny - but very cool sub effect when all the Xmas lights blow out the neighborhood's power.
