1. Hi, Christie –

    Thanks for helping to rev up the Christmas spirit today. I love Christmas songs, so it is hard to choose just one favourite. One Christmas song/video that I adore is Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_ReMi7tVWA

    The strangest Christmas song/lyrics that I’ve heard is the adult spoof to Winter Wonderland by Bob Rivers. You can access it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9URPvejWHk

    Wishing you a great Christmas Countdown!

    • I love the Little Drummer Boy also, but I’m not sure I’ve seen this video, so I’m going to check it out, and of course, I have to view the spoof. Thanks for sharing these links, Donna.

    I was at a carol sing at the British Embassy last December. I can’t recall the carol(s) right now but I remember being stunned by some of the words in the second and third verses of these traditional songs. Very interesting blog entry!

  3. I used to turn up the volume on “Momma got run over by a Reindeer” had my kids in stitches everytime. The other one that I would rock was the “Santa Claus Boogie”

    It was good fun all around. Had everyone laughing and laughter is good!

    These are funny! I heard a song on the CMA Christmas special by Alan Jackson and Chris Young. It sounded beautiful but the lyrics seemed odd to me: They kept referring to Jesus as “a new kid in town.” I also think The Elf on a Shelf is a perfect example of a creeper.?

  5. Tiffany

    I think the creepiest lyric is in the song, “Baby it’s Cold Outside” where she says “what’s in this drink?” to the guy who is trying to talk her into staying. Creeper laced her drink!

    My favorite song is we three kings. I like the music more than the lyrics. ?

    • Yes, Tiffany, I agree. I’ve always thought that song was “cute,” but then when I really listen to the words, it’s a little creepy. I do love the music more than the words of most songs. I just thought of one more with interesting lyrics: Hallelujah. “She tied you to her kitchen chair She broke your throne and she cut your hair And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah.” I know the story, but still kind of a creepy Christmas song.

  6. Funny! Some song lyrics – when they are broken down – are really disturbing! Even though I’m not religious, one of the most religious songs, Oh Holy Night, is my very favorite. I also love Jose Feliciano’s Feliz Navidad.

    • O Holy Night is my favorite too, Janis. The music is so beautiful. I just looked on my iPod, and I have 10 different artists singing that song–not intentionally, but I’ve downloaded several Christmas albums and it appears they all include O Holy Night. Josh Groban is my favorite.
