I think everybody has their favourite Christmas song. Well…y’know…if they actually enjoy Christmas. If you’re Jewish or Muslim, maybe those songs aren’t your bag.
But for those of us who do celebrate the holidays, I’d like to think that we’ve got our own favourite holiday song. For me, there are just so many to choose from I can’t pick just one song.
I do remember, though, buying A Very Special Christmas as a teenager. This album was fantastic! There were classic songs by Bruce Springsteen, the Pointer Sisters, Whitney Houston, Madonna, U2, and Bryan Adams that are still played on the radio in regular holiday rotation today.
For me, though, the most memorable song on that album was by Run-DMC. I mean, who had ever thought you could create a rap-music Christmas song?
I remember that MTV used to be big on Christmas music, too. In fact, I remember videos for two of my favourite all-time Christmas songs were based on MTV holiday specials:
As time has gone on, my tastes have changed and varied. I’m a fan of Christmas music, unlike others in my family (ahem…Sunshine…cough). I’m pretty sure I’ll be sitting back relaxing all next week and enjoying the holidays, so until the next time we talk…have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, a Happy Kwanza, and a happy anything else that you may celebrate at this time of the year.
