These are the songs I have to hear in order to confirm it's Christmas time. These are my absolute favorite Christmas songs.

Silent Night - The Temptations

This is absolutely the greatest version of this song. I dare anyone to come up with a better version. I dare ya.

This Christmas - Donny Hathaway

Merry Christmas Baby - Charles Brown

Please Come Home for Christmas - Charles Brown

Every Year, Every Christmas - Luther Vandross

Joy to the World - Whitney 'The Voice' Houston

Let It Snow - Boyz II Men, Brian McKnight

What are ya favorite Christmas songs?


  1. In addition to those you named:

    Merry Christmas Baby - Otis Redding version is a must. He sounds SO happy and lit up like a Christmas tree for real.

    He's brought joy - CeCe Winans

    Carol of the Bells - Donald Lawrence & the tri-city singers

    Gee Whiz It's Christmas - CarlaThomas

    White Christmas - The Drifters

    ok, I sound really old with those last two choices, but I just love old school harmony & Motown.

    Ave Maria - Stevie Wonder

    the Handel's Soulful Messiah version of the Hallelujah Chorus

  2. Awww man....I forgot all about the Otis Redding 'Merry Christmas Baby.' I love that song.
