My Favorite Christmas Songs
We've done movies. Now it's music's turn.
After a fun Christmas movie top 10 list with a few of the guys in the office like Slater from Q92.3 and Shawn from 97.7 KCRR, I'm issuing a challenge to them to come up with their favorite Christmas songs.
I'm even going to put the pressure on. A top 10 movie list is easy because there are so many choices... there are WAY more choices when it comes to Christmas songs. So we now have to choose the top 5 of our favorite Christmas songs/renditions.
Here we go with Neuman's Top 5 Christmas songs.
5. Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth) - Bing Crosby & David Bowie
Just two icons from different generations gelling so well together makes this song a classic.
4. Hallelujah - Tiffany Day (Into an Italian well)
I don't care that it's just the first verse. Tiffany's rendition is so good! She has an amazing voice and that smile at the end is so contagious.
3. Deck the Halls - Mannheim Steamroller
This song was my childhood Christmas. We had this on tape and I can't believe we didn't wear it out.
2. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Barenaked Ladies feat. Sarah McLachlan
A great song by one of my favorite bands. Their rendition is so good. Plus, McLachlan brings a sweetness that takes this song to another level.
1. Mary, Did You Know? - Travis Cottrell feat. Lily Cottrell
This song just quickly became my favorite. I've liked almost all renditions of "Mary, Did You Know?" and this one just stands out.
