santahat Best Christmas Songs

Okay...this might be tough...but what are your five favorite Christmas songs (by this I mean song and artist, to narrow down which version). It's hard to narrow my favorites down, and it actually changes from year to year. However, these are probably my five favorite right now:

"Away in a Manger"-Third Day
"Hurry Home For Christmas"-Steve and Eydie
"Marshmallow World"-Dean Martin
"All I Want For Christmas is You"-Vince Vance and the Valiants
"I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day"-Mercy Me
"It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas"-Bing Crosby

I cheated...that's six! I can't narrow it down to five! There are so many right now that I want to add to the list. This year I discovered (thanks to someone's post here on the forums) "Christmas Auld Lang Syne" by Bobby Darin that is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Alright...done rambling...what are some of your standards?

Man, I can't believe I forgot Christmas Time is Here...a great song! All your picks were great. I'm a fan of Holly Jolly Christmas too. It was very sad to hear about Andy Williams passing away. His "Happy Holidays" is one of my all time favorites. Great list and thanks for the response!

I don't know The Friendly Beasts...but I just looked it up and read that it's been around for a long time. Guess I've missed it some how. I'll have to listen to it. I really like Garth's version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen."
Great list! Thanks for sharing!
