Of all the versions of all the Christmas songs you have heard in your entire lifetime, what one single version of what particular Christmas song is your all-time favorite?
Stated differently, if you could only listen to one, lone Christmas song for the entire season, what one would it be?
My choice would be Perry Como's "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", the one with the jingling sleigh bells in the background. That one just says Christmas to me.

This is really a tough one...I guess if I have to pick one song, it'd be "The Christmas Song", you know...chestnuts roasting on an open fire...I have no idea which of the many versions of this fine song would be my all time favorite...But I do love this song...Being a traditionalist, I'd say that Nat King Cole's is my favorite but there are so many that I enjoy almost as much, it's tough to say that only one is my favorite...
Nothing is more important than the soundtrack!!!
Everytime this question comes up I'm always at a loss to choose only one!
For the last three or four (five?) years, since my discovery, I've had a particular fondness for "Little Cajun Drummer Boy" by Evan Johns & His H-Bombs. Everything in this instrumental mix just reaches out a grabs me, from the first guitar lick to the triangle! I have to make myself not end every Christmas CD/show that I do with it!
Another close second is an original tune by The Twang called "Eggnog". Save for the word eggnog, this one's an instrumental as well.
The traditional stuff I leave to the bland, stale & always unimaginative "holiday radio stations." Nothing wrong with the classics, mind you, but why would one only scratch the surface when there is so much great Christmas music down below?
I love them all....but my all time favorite was a song that played only on our local hometown radio station. It was called Elfie the Littlest Elf. I miss hearing that song and have tried tracking it down with no luck. My parents use to call me Elfie. I am so short I could be a elf! LOL! I sang along with the radio everytime it came on...with a very load and proud voice. hehe
