I hate to admit it but...


I really like Mariah Carey's Christmas music (specifically 'All I want for Christmas is you'). Maybe it is because her voice is SO AMAZING and her regular music is so crappy, but when she sings Christmas songs, it fills me with joy.

Who is your favorite singer to cover Christmas songs?

I'll have to think about this question, but in the meantime, I totally agree about Mariah Carey singing Christmas songs. I don't like her voice usually, but 'All I Want for Christmas is You' is amazing.

My friend B. loves her voice. I've never understood that.

I was going to write a blog about this too. Not about Mariah Carey but about Christmas song singers. My fave: Harry Connick Jr. Hands down.

I also REALLY dig Bruce Springsteen's cover of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. It's so much fun.

I'm ok with Mariah singing Christmas songs, but her regular songs are mostly painful screeching to me.

OMG- I forgot about Dolly and Kenny! I know all the words too!! We used to listen to the RECORD of that when we were little. ANGE loved that stuff.

HEIDI - I cannot BELIEVE you said Dolly and Kenny - I ADORE THEM. My Mom ALWAYS listened to that album and I love it.

Een - I think WE had that ALBUM, too.

YAY!

Love it, love it.

I adore Mariah Carey's CHRISTMAS stuff, too. (Nothing else.)

I also really like Martina McBride's album out. It's great.

Een - I meant we had that *record*, too.

If you like AIWFCIY, listen to her remix of "Joy to the World". I make an embarrassment of myself when I listen to it while driving. I just can't help it, I get so into the damn song! All her xmas songs as a matter of fact...

Another favorite: Michael Buble. He could sing the song to Seasame Street and I'd love it.

I totally agree CC, Michael Buble's voice is amazing. It's so smooth and sexy. And it sounds like it comes so easy to him.

Ever see him in concert? Whoa.
