The Playlist

Since all y'all continue to comment on the "Christmas Covers" post of a few days ago, and friends and family eventually contributed their two cents, I collaborated with my accountants at PriceWaterhouse, tabulated the results of the voting and built the following Best Christmas Song Covers playlist...just for you, my peeps.

Except for a few of my choices, this was democratically decided. I'm sorry if I missed any of your picks, but if the tune wasn't available on playlist.com, I couldn't include it. (Click on the bottom song to scroll).

Enjoy!

I was wrong. My deepest and most abject apologies. I do have a couple of Christmas covers that are my favorites.
1. O Holy Night by Mercy Me
1A.In the Bleak Midwinter by James Taylor
2. Some Children See Him by James Taylor
3. Who Comes This Night by James Taylor
4. The Christmas Song by James Taylor
and now
5. The Carol of the Bells by Metallica

I was considering bad covers by more faddish new artists. My bad.

This is the nicest thing to happen to me this week. I'm just sitting here grinning ear to ear...

You ladies have once again proved your awesomeness. I bow before you. But to clarify: it's Metallica and the Trans Siberian Orchestra. Just making sure they get their props...

I'm bopping along to Mr. Heatmiser as I type. :) All I have to hear the is Waitresses and I'm ready for the season!

Mel: I LOVE Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses, but I couldn't find where it's a cover - I think it's an original work. (I also think I posted a link to the video last Xmas).

Tom: Rise from your knees, Boy. You are forgiven. (It's hard not to forgive a fellow James Taylor fanatic. :o) )

Well, I'd love to check out the playlist, but seeing as how I am imprisoned (i.e., at work), all online music is blocked. The big flashing siren pops up on the screen, making it look as if I'm trying to view porn or ebay or something else deemed inappropriate. I'm lucky to get to read your wonderful insights...
