Great Christmas songs #4

Gotta have some Elvis! We have this cd and my girl always complains (whines, really) when we play it. Dad loves to annoy her by singing it loudly. He's got that deep voice and sounds pretty good. This year we played it and she finally admitted that "it's OK, it's just not my favorite."

Speaking of favorites, other than "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" these aren't really in order of preference. That's first mostly because until youtube came into my life, I rarely heard it. Even the oldies station doesn't play it much during the season. It's hard to choose a true favorite.

What's yours?

"Blue Christmas" is one of my favorites but I think "The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole is tops for me along with "O Holy Night" preferably sung by a soprano. I like a lot of Christmas songs, religious and secular. Too many to list here.

BTW - I go around singing "Blue Christmas" too and it irritates my daughter also.

Is there anything more American than Elvis at Christmas? I think that's right in there with baseball and apple pie.
