Ten Things Tuesday- Christmas Songs

We all have our favorite Christmas songs.

I would bet you do, even if you don't celebrate Christmas for any reason.

I am not really religious and my family doesn't celebrate Christmas in that fashion.
It is a time to share love and that is pretty much where it ends for me.

I know all the religious carols from growing up going to church.
So, I like listening to all kinds of Christmas songs.

Today's Ten Things Tuesday is a list of some of my favorite songs this time of year.

So without further adieu and in no certain order...

1. Back Door Santa
    This is definitely not church music, but I like it. This is written and performed by Clarence Carter, though it has been redone by several artists over the years. If you get offended easily DO NOT click on the link.

2. Heavy Metal Christmas
     This is Twisted Sister performing it's version of the 12 Days of Christmas. I have the whole album.

3. Be Clause I Got High
     This is made by Bob Rivers Comedy Group. The things that won't get done if you are really doped up.

4. The Night Santa Went Crazy
     It's from Weird Al Yankovic. That gives you an idea what to expect.

5. Little Drummer Boy
     This is from Bob Seger. I have always loved this song. When I went to Sunday School and we'd have our Christmas concert, they'd always have one of the kids that played drums be the drummer boy. Even if the only drummer was not a boy.

6. Do They Know It's Christmas
     A group of artists known as Band Aid recorded this for African relief.

7. Christmas All Over Again
     Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers perform this.

8. Wonderful Christmastime
     This is from Paul McCartney and the Wings.

9. Happy Christmas
     This is John Lennon.

10. Santa Claus is Coming to Town
     This is the Bruce Springsteen version.


There are SO many songs to pick from. Do you have a favorite Christmas or holiday song?
Let me know!

Have a great Tuesday!

  1. I've been a fan of "O Come All Ye Faithful." But, I'm convinced the nuns changed it to "Adestes Fideles" so we wouldn't giggle at the song's title.

    1. Al, if you ever decide to convert, Protestants still call it "O Come All Ye Faithful".

  3. I've been meaning to listen to the Twisted Christmas - sounds amazing what I've heard of it so far. It's hard to imagine those guys singing carols!

    My current favorite is Merry Christmas from the Family by Montgomery Gentry.
