Christmas Songs, the Best & the Worst

December 7, 2009

I love the Christmas season. Above all, I love the focus on Jesus. I also love the decorations. I love the lights. I enjoy the fact that several radio stations play Christmas music all month long. But, tuning in to these stations, there are some songs I’ve come to despise! They drive me nuts! Here are my current “Top 5” lists.  The five songs that make me cringe and turn the station.  And the five songs (among many more) that bring nostalgia and/or stir my heart with worship.

The Worst:
5. Feliz Navidad, Jose Feliciano
4. Little Saint Nick, The Beach Boys
3. Merry Christmas Baby, The Beach Boys
2. Last Christmas, Wham!
1. Wonderful Christmastime, Paul McCartney

My Favorites:
5. White Christmas, Irving Berlin
4. Carol of the Bells, Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych
3. O Holy Night, Adolphe Adam
2. Mary Did You Know?, Mark Lowry
1. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Charles Wesley

Ok, there’s my best and worst list. Any objections?  Any additions?  How about yours?
