Favorite Christmas CD

A few years ago on the DIS someone posted about the Straight No Chaser CDs, so I bought both of them and absolutely LOVE them. Some other more "recent" ones I like are Barenaked Ladies and Trans Siberian Orchestra. I have the classics too (Mitch Miller, etc) but I'm looking for some of the more current holiday CDs - do you have any suggestions? Anyone have the new Rod Stewart one? Lady Antebellum?

I don't have any Mannheim Steamroller....

I have Celtic Women, Josh Groban, but they're not my favorites. I like to treat myself to a new CD each year, but not sure what to get this year. Which ones do you like? Thanks!

My favorite is brad paisley's. It's a nice mix of classics and new songs. Olivia newton John and John travolta have a brand new Christmas cd that I don't have and haven't heard, but it's something I'd like for this year.

We have a few that are our go to albums, Bob Dylan's "Christmas In the Heart" is by far my favorite Christmas CD ever, the song "Must be Santa" is a favorite dance party song in our house, its fun and a upbeat song. Though the decortating the tree album is the Charlie Brown Vince Guaraldi sound tract. DH has a soft spot for the Twisted Sister Xmas album though too.

Mannheim Steamroller- Christmas ; Fresh Aire Christmas. I like all of theirs
2010-they were at Universal Studios so we got to see them as part of the admission to US. Loved it!

Reliant K has a good one

James Taylor A Christmas Album

I have one that is just a Dulcimer Christmas album that I like.

I have to through out there Elvis' Christmas album

If just getting one, I'd say Mannheim Steamroller. Either of the two above are really nice.

One of my weaknesses is buying Christmas CD's. I have too many but buy new ones every year.

This year I bought Scotty McCreery, Jewel, Brad Paisley, and Tony Bennett.

I started buying Christmas albums (back when they WERE vinyl albums) in 1975 and have added new ones every year.

My all-time favorite is the first one The Waltons made, back in the 70's. I have it on vinyl but also recorded it onto cassette and still listen to it every season. They made a new Christmas CD a few years ago, have that one and love it too. I also love the ones by Mannheim Steamroller and Trans Siberian Orchestra too.

I love all kinds of Christmas music. Traditional, new, rock, country, celtic, instrumental, etc. etc.

Josh Groban has an awesome Christmas album. He covers "I'll be home for Christmas" that I swear will have everyone crying.

Of course my favorite is a classic. Johnny Mathis Christmas. anyone will do as long as it's got "winter wonderland" on it.

lastly, it cannot be Christmas without "A charlie brown christmas" soundtrack. It will make anyone have a Cool Yule

Christmas Cocktails. http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-Lounge-C...tmas+cocktails

I also have a punk mix that I made myself, stuff like ** to the World, Under the Christmas Fish (Didjits), Christmas Vacation (Descendents), My Christmas Wish (Blues Explosion), that sort of thing.

Last edited by Janepod; 12-06-2012 at 07:22 AM. Reason: Not editing, just noting that the ** is a word that rhymes with Joy. Don't know why it's starred.

Can't go wrong with Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown Christmas or the Transiberian Orchestra stuff. I really enjoy instrumental guitar focused Christmas tunes. Some to check out:

- Merry Axemas vol 1 & 2
- Gary Hoey's Ho Ho Hoey
- Steve Lukather's Santamental
- Brian Setzer's Christmas Comes Alive and Christmas Rocks

If lyou like hard rock, another great CD is 'We Wish you a Metal Xmas'. It's got rock/metal greats like Lemmy, Dio, Dave Grohl and Alice Cooper doing holiday standards.
