This is such a nice song by Roger Miller and the video is also beautiful. Great Christmas song and video. Roger Miller was such a nice person.

I will start the new Christmas Season off with the last song from the previous season. :)

Love the oldies too, even ones like Let It Snow when it's summer here in the Southern Hemisphere at Christmastime  :D

 

This is one of my favourites.

Probably my favourite Christmas song but I usually listen to a lot of Ella FItzgerald, Elvis, Toni Bennet and generally old Christmas songs.

Last Christmas by Wham

 

I believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake - very OTT, but hardly ever played on the radio now and I just love the baroque feel of it

 

The Power of Love by Frankie goes to Hollywood - I once heard this playing at an ice cream parlour in Italy in the middle of June ,which was surreal to say the least!

Having been forced to listen to Christmas music during my years working retail, I can no longer stomach Christmas music.

I feel as though I'm in a room filled with chalk boards and long nails. My skin starts to itch like I'm breaking out in hives. It comes from retailers cranking the tunes you at Halloween. Ugh.

I've often felt sorry for shop staff, having to listen it all the time.

I never by choice listen to Christmas music, but there's the odd song I really enjoy. Any excuse to post this classic.

Being a Scrooge in my old age, the only Christmas music I'll tolerate is the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas by the lovely Vince Guaraldi.  Mostly traditional Christmas songs but in Vince's cool, jazzy way :D

There are more forum members posting on this topic that "don't" like Christmas music than those that do. :)

 

Well, I love Christmas music. I was born early enough and have lived long enough to hear, probably, most of the Christmas hits when they were first released and I have not got tired of them. :)

I mostly love anything that sounds old-timey. Christmas FM's Classic station usually does the job.

You can't go wrong with anything Ella does, Muggle Not ;).  Good choice!  I need to check that album out.

I love Christmas music Pogues, Wham, Choirs, bands, I think it all adds to the festivities.

I also love this "old" non-traditional Christmas song.
