What is Your Favorite Christmas Song?

Are you the type of person who actually LOVES Christmas songs? I am, and find it really keeps my spirits lifted during the holiday season. I enjoy playing it throughout our home and when in the car (to the dismay of my husband) and adore Christmas music of all genres; traditional carols and standards, spirituals, and most especially, pop and rock and roll Christmas songs.  My list is quickly growing too long as I write this–The Pretender’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” U2′s “Baby Please Come Home,” Brenda Lee’s “I’m Gonna Lasso Santa Claus,” Eartha Kit’s “Santa Baby,” and a new favorite, Michael Buble’s version of “All I Want for Christmas is You,” to name only a very few. If you have a favorite Christmas song, or two, or three, or more, I would love to know yours.

Here’s of one of my all time favorites to keep your spirits up and to get you through the holiday madness, “Christmas All Over Again,” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I think you’ll enjoy the funny and sweet lyrics.

Well, it’s Christmas time again

Decorations are all hung by the fire

Everybody’s singin’, all the bells are ringing out

And it’s Christmas all over again, yeah, again

Long distance relatives

Haven’t seen ‘em in a long, long time

Yeah, I kind of missed ‘em, I just don’t wanna kiss ‘em, no

It’s Christmas all over again, yeah, again

And all over town, little kids gonna get down

And Christmas is a rockin’ time, put your body next to mine

Underneath the mistletoe we go, we go

Everybody’s singin’, all the bells are ringin’ out

It’s Christmas all over again, yeah, again

And right down our block, little kids start to rock

And Christmas is a rockin’ time, put your body next to mine

Underneath the mistletoe we go, we go

Merry Christmas time come and find you happy

And there by your fire, I hope you have a good one

I hope momma gets her shoppin’ done

And it’s a Christmas all over again

Baby, it’s Christmas all over again

And it’s Christmas all over again

Now let’s see, I want a new Rickenbacker guitar

Two Fender bassmans

Chuck Berry songbooks, xylophone
