No Christmas For Me...

Every year I find a new Christmas song that speaks to me. Why do they always tend to be a bit melancholy? I don't know what that says about me. I found this one by Zee Avi (formerly Koko Kaina) and I can't stop listening to it.

Here is a link to see the artist singing it, I highly recommend going here (it wouldn't let me embed it)....if not, take a listen to the video below.

Other songs on my Christmas Listening Mix:

White Christmas--Otis Redding version
Christmas--Rogue Wave
Frosty the Snowman--Fiona Apple
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen--Barenaked Ladies
Santa Baby--Eartha Kit
Winter Song--Ingrid Michaelson
Baby, It's Cold Outside--Dean Martin
Let it Snow--Michael Buble
Oh Holy Night--Jewel

What is your favorite Christmas song right now?

Perennial cheesy favorite: Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You." It makes me happy every time I hear it on the radio and makes me love my favorite movie "Love Actually" even more!

Also have to add my least favorite song: "Christmas Shoes" about the little boy who wants to buy shoes for his dying mother.

How is that an uplifting song about Christmas spirit?

"River" by Sarah McLachlan. I'm almost always melancholy this time of year but, knock on wood, so far this year it has not yet descended upon me! Hooray! :-)

I was going to say "All I Want For Christmas Is You" but Stina claimed it first. I like the fun ones, so I'm gonna go with "Last Christmas" by Wham, so many memories. But if I had to pick a carol, I would say, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day."
