stole my idea for this week’s Five brought this up in a previous OT — favorite Christmas songs, secular & non-. I’m also thinking Christmas novelty songs and Christmas cartoon villains…Name your favorites!
5. Christmas covers (contemporary) : Eagles & Please Come Home for Christmas. I think of it as a less depressing version of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.
4. Christmas covers (classic) : Elvis & Blue Christmas. A sexy Yuletide? Only he could make it happen.
3. Christmas cartoon villain : The Grinch. Mostly because his hair grew an evil grin too, and that was frightening. But cool!
2. New (or recent) Christmas songs (tie): Elton John & Step into Christmas and George Michael’s Last Christmas. Just fun.
1. Radio Christmas (tie): (Named for that once-a-year tune that’s every fifth song on the playlist.) Jose Feliciano & Feliz Navidad and Boney M & Mary’s Boy Child. Utterly infectious, completely joyous, and must be sung at the top of one’s lungs.
