Thursday Thirteen #23
13 things about Dane Bramage
Christmas Carols Edition
I am absolutely buried at work and Thursday snuck up on me. I was going to blow it off completely but as I sat here listening to Christmas music, I thought it would be nice for me (and quick too!) to list My 13 Favorite Christmas songs. So in no particular order:
- O Holy Night. My absolute favorite. I have about six or seven versions including Jewel, Tracey Chapman, Patti LaBelle and a mens choir whose name escapes me.
- Carol of the Bells. Instrumental or vocal I love this classic. I have the Veinna Boys Choir and Manheim Steamroller to name a few.
- I Wonder as I Wander I have to sing this solo in front of the Church on Christmas Eve
- Beautiful Star of Bethlehem I have to sing this with the men's quintet on Sunday
- Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant C'est Magnifique! Dr. John has a version. Must be the Creole in him.
- Hark The Harold Angels Sing A favorite since I was a kid.
- Sleigh Ride Okay lets start with Authur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, and then there's Harry Connick Jr., Manhattan Transfer, The Salsoul Orchestra, Billy Gilman with Charlotte Church, and the Spice Girls. You think I might be fond of this one?
- God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen It just wouldn't be Christmas without hearing this song.
- Silver Bells Another one that I have a bunch of versions of including Diana Ross and the Supremes
- This Christmas A great song by the late Donny Hathaway. There are several other versions out too but his is best.
- Christmas Time is Here A classic by the late Vince Guaraldi from 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'. If you do not have the soundtrack go get it now. Every tune on it is a treasure.
- Merry Christmas From the Family I laugh every time I hear this song and shudder at how close it gets to how some family Christmases go. I recommend the Robert Earl Keen version and NOT the Dixie Chicks/Rosie O'Donnell version
- Christmas Wrappings A guilty pleasure but I have to hear this song by the Waitresses at least once during the Christmas season.
