“Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” and Other Holiday Favorites
“Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” sung by The Irish Rovers. Great song, horrible TV special. And *gasp* I actually went to a dinner party last weekend where NO ONE knew this song. The blasphemy!
“The Night Santa Went Crazy” by Weird Al Yankovic. How can I not love a song about Santa Claus realizing he’s being gypped for all these centuries?
“You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” sung by Boris Karloff.
“The Chipmunk Song” by The Chipmunks. The hoola hoop really dates this song, but I still love it.
“It’s a Marshmellow World” sung by Kim Stockwood. This one always makes me a little hungry.
“Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” by U2.
“Silver Bells” sung by Atlantic Starr.
“O Holy Night” sung by Tevin Campbell.
“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” sung by The Pretenders. Doesn’t Chrissie Hynde have the most amazing voice?
“All I Want for Christmas Is You” sung by Mariah Carey.
“Santa Baby” sung by Madonna. Ah, a song that unabashedly embraces the commercialism of the birth of Christ.
“Do You Hear What I Hear” sung by Whitney Houston.
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” sung by Holly Cole. It’s a very suggestive little ditty for a Christmas song.
