    I was just sitting here thinking about Christmas songs and I was wondering what types of songs do others listen to?

    I am traditionalist and only listen to Nat King Cole. With the occasional Alvin and the Chipmunks and Rat Pack members.

    Do you listen to the more modern songs? Country? Do you love those kookie songs? Or are you a classical listener?

    That's a coincidence, I was just looking at my festive cds. :D

    I love Bing Crosby's, Sinatra's and Dean Martin's Christmas music. Also the real corny classics like Wizzard, Slade etc.

    And one of my favourite cds is - 'Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets!' If you haven't heard it, give them a listen. It really cheers you up.

    I listen to the classics. There are only a couple of modern/remake Christmas songs that I really like.

    I grew up on Bing Crosby Christmas album! I think mom still has it. We also had another album we put on while decorating the tree which was a mix of the older 'generation' singing the famous songs. That had Sinatra and the like.
    I do have to say now I'll listen to almost any holiday stuff. Just puts me in a good mood!

    That Mariah Carey sure made one catchy song hun? ;) I hear she has a new Holiday album coming out, she says it's better than the last one.

    I like most Christmas music, to include the classics, some more whimsical as Alvin and the Chipmunks, Grandma got run over by a Reindeer, etc.

    However, I also like some of the newer singers and country and western Christmas music. What I don't like, and this even includes current hit music, is for an artist to take an old song and totally destroy it with a remake. Oh and Barbra Streisand should NOT be singing Christmas music.

    I like the usual ones, but i hear them a few times and then i find myself a bit bored of them! I have a dolly parton christmas one which i love, reminds me of being at home - and I have a disney family christmas cd which both me and isabelle think is brilliant!

    There's just so much to choose from now. I just saw a cd that was Elvis singing Christmas songs, but he was also singing with a current performer. Kinda like what Natalie Cole did with her dad's song. Seems a little odd to me.
