Nat King Cole´s "The Christmas Song".....that song is just so beautifull....I can´t even describe how I feel hearing hearing it....it makes me feel so warm and happy....just by listening to it....The person who wrote deserves a Grammy and Pulitzer...lol
While it's not my one favorite Christmas song of all time, I still think that Judy Garland's version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" tops all other recorded versions. Too many artists try to take the aching sadness out of the song and I think that ruins it. Maybe that's because so few singers today can sing and emote the way Judy did.
That's the song, and the version of it, that I listen to when I spend a Christmas missing someone terribly. Sometimes at Christmas you just have to cry.
I don't think I could pick one. Maybe I could narrow it down to 10. "Mary Did You Know" is a very pretty and rather haunting tune however it always makes me think that the person who wrote the lyrics missed a lot of Sunday school. As I recall, (Luke1:30-33) the angel told Mary.
"Christmas stays if we don't forget its meaning"
