• Christmas Music

    It's that time of year. Christmas is my wife's favorite holiday, so she has already started
    listening. If I listen, I always try to find the old standards and try to avoid a station that
    plays covers by artists that just like to ruin the song.

    I think that most current artists have a contract for a certain amount of albums, and at
    least one of them has to be Christmas songs. It's rare that their holiday album is a real
    winner.

    I don't mean to sound like a Grinch. I love Christmas and everything that goes with it.
    I am planning on hanging lights outside tomorrow. It's something I look forward to
    every year.

    I think anything by Johnny Mathis is a worthwhile listen. What artists do you enjoy?

    Mike,

    It's that time of year. Christmas is my wife's favorite holiday, so
    she has already started listening. If I listen, I always try to find
    the old standards and try to avoid a station that plays covers by
    artists that just like to ruin the song.

    Grandma got run over by that reindeer...so, you see the deer heads on
    the fireplace mantle. <G>

    I loved the way Boris Karloff did the song with the original Dr. Seuss
    deal. I didn't care for the movie with Jim Carey...although I did like
    him in "The Mask".

    I think anything by Johnny Mathis is a worthwhile listen. What artists
    do you enjoy?

    I agree with Christian Comedian Chondra Pierce. "If they play White
    Christmas once more, I'm going to slit my wrists". <G>

    Seriously, I prefer the songs with "the reason for the season". But, with
    all the commercialism over the last several years, I got burned out. I do
    not put up decorations of any sort, and don't do any music, go to any
    church cantatas, etc.

    I'm not like that female country star named Gretchen (I forget her last name), who has her Christmas lights up all year long...and she knows all
    the words to every Tanya Tucker, Charlie Daniels, and Ol' Bocephus (Hank Williams, Jr.) song.

    ... I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
