Neither really. I like traditional tinsel tunes and I love to hear the latest Christmas releases to see what grabs me. My favorite type of Christmas music, however, is the forgotten gems and obscure tunes, new and old, that fall through the cracks.
No holiday has inspired such a wide variety of musical offerings as Christmas! To limit oneself to the top one hundred or so seasonal songs by a only a handful of artists is just plain wrong! My musical goal in life is to hear every Christmas song ever recorded! I’ll pass along the better(?) ones to you on MCR.
I love my traditional holiday tunes but every now and then a current one comes on and I can't help but tap my feet. Ex: All I want for Christmas by Mariah Carey, many have done this song but her's remains my favorite.
