re: Best Christmas/Holiday Music
No particular order:
Another Old Lang Syne: Dan Fogelberg

Linus and Lucy: too lazy to google, I think the artist is Bob Giraldi

Christmas in Hollis: Run DMC

Baby Please Come Home: U2 does a good cover, but I like Darlene Love's original version better.

This is Christmas: John Lennon

Close...Vince Guaraldi

That being said, my list would include the entire Charlie Brown Christmas Album, but can't, so here goes.

1--Charles Brown (NOT Charlie Brown!)...Please Come Home for Christmas. Done by the Eagles, Bon Jovi, and a host of others. Nothing like the original.

2--The Drifters...White Christmas. Elvis copied his R&B version of this directly from this arrangement.

3--Band Aid...Do They Know It's Christmas. For those of you too young to know, this was the original inspiration for "We Are The World" and USA for AFrica. Bob Geldof and the Boomtown Rats, baby!

4--Leon Redbone...Christmas Island. He used to appear on SNL in the 70's. About as cool a cat as has ever been around.

5--Nat King Cole--The Christmas Song. Chestnuts and all that--gotta have a classic in there.

This one actually had some heart and soul, with an off-the-cuff feel. Unlike the overproduced, passionless We Are The World.
