Top 11 Songs To Get You In the Spirit of Christmas.

I had the great fortune to win tickets to see Mannheim Steamroller last night thanks to the Oregon Symphony. Sitting in the front row, hearing their versions of music for Christmas, I got to thinking; I love Christmas music. I also love various versions of some of the more traditional. Here are the top 11 songs that always help me get into the Christmas Spirit.

#11: Silent Night: Celtic Woman

#10: Do You Hear What I Hear: Carrie Underwood

#9: Little Drummer Boy: Vienna Boys Choir

#8: Silver Bells: Mannheim Steamroller

#7: Blue Christmas: Elvis Presley

#6: Santa Baby: Madonna

#5: All I Want For Christmas is You: Michael Bublé

#4: Joy To The World: Mormon Tabernacle Choir

#3: Handel – Messiah – Hallelujah Chorus: Johann Strauss Orchestra and the Harlem Gospel Choir

#2: God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman/ We Three Kings: Barenaked Ladies & Sarah Mclachlan

      A splendid song, yes. But, since it was released in the summer, it didn’t make the selection committee’s deadline. 🙂
