Music is kinda my "thing." And I LOVE Christmas music. My favorite is "O Holy Night." I like a lot of different versions of this song, so I can't really point to a favorite artist; Christina Aguilera, Straight No Chaser, Josh Groban, and NSync (it's good-shut up!) all have good renditions.

Tell me yours! Extra points if you include a music video!

Bonus BONUS points if you show me more excellent renditions of my favorite song.

And, go!

Sweet Little Jesus Boy sung by Kenny Rogers.

My new favorite is My Soul Magnifies the Lord by Chris Tomlin.

And if ANYBODY mentions that Christmas Shoes song, I will send Grumpy Cat to pee in every pair of shoes they own.

Abby,

Have you seen the Carrie Underwood version of O Holy Night? Probably my favorite.

TCD- ::whispers:: I don't like South Park and never have...

HFSSC- Good choices! Sweet Little Jesus Boy is excellent. But you jumped the gun- Fun poll #3 was going to be "what is your LEAST favorite Christmas song!"

This is my all time favourite Christmas song.

I don't have a favorite, but Dominic the Donkey tends to get stuck in my head.

Bob Seger singing Little Drummer Boy with Trans Siberian Orchestra ... At the least, I get goosebumps, quite often, I cry. I don't know why but it just does.

I hate this song, but it does tend to get stuck in your head. Speaking of earworms...

Never heard this but Bob Seger is good. Extra points!

And I owe TCD bonus points even though I don't care for Cartman.

I went to a prestigious music college and every December we would have Readings and Carols in Princeton University Chapel. Here is a picture search:

https://www.google.com/search?q=princeton+university+chapel&client=safari&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=REufUtunKKazsQTi2oCIAw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAA&biw=320&bih=416

All the choirs performed and as a freshman you had to run back and forth from the choir loft to the front of the chapel to perform. To make all the movements seamless we would go under the chapel in the crypts. It is always an amazing night. The college I went to owns the largest range of handbells in the world. At the end of the concert the lights are turned off and the choirs all have candles. A star is projected on the stone ceiling and we sing Silent Night. When the sounds finally stops, a member of the bell choir stands in the middle of the aisle with a giant bell and slowly starts chiming. One after another around the whole chapel the bell choir starts ringing their bells and the giant stone cathedral is filled with bells ringing. We call it ringing in the season...ba dum. Then we all sing Joy To The World. My favorite song of the entire night is O Come O Come O Come Emmanuel. The ending is just big and amazing. I don't believe there is a recording from our concerts on YouTube and I'm trying to find at least a video of the arrangement. So for now here is a video of our school's song. We sing it at the end of every concert (except the Xmas one), at happy and sad times (on 9/11 the entire school gathered together while things were still happening and sang this together), and at graduation. This video was taken in Princeton University Chapel.

This sounds AMAZING. I want to sing here!

For many years, my daughter and I have had our annual cookie-making weekend to the lovely sound of Harry Connick. We never fail to join in when Harry sings, "A Happy Ho Ho Ho to you"!!!! Then we replay it at least six times that weekend. So just for sheer exuberance on our part, I'd have to say that's my favourite! Second would probably be Dean Martin and someone (there are several) singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside".

I thought you meant "songs"; I consider the religious tunes "hymns".

I second the Pentatonix Drummer Boy. Awesome.

TattooedChinaDoll, I watched the video and had serious flashbacks to performing in my own university's choir. Our performances were highlights of my university years. How wonderful that you have these memories.

Moo- I don't typically like this song. But that Pentatonix video was FANTASTIC! Good choice and Extra Points for you!

Lynn- good choices on the Harry Connick Jr, and the "Baby It's Cold Outside." I don't consider all religious songs hymns, but this is just semantics anyway. Hymns are songs too. Anyway, not trying to be rude, but it's just a difference of interpretation/perception.

I am also a lover of O Holy Night. I find it haunting and so gentle.
