It's Monday morning, but it's only 6 more days til Christmas! There's lots of things to do in preparation for the big day and that time will fly by, except for the little ones who are anxiously awaiting Christmas Eve and Santa's arrival.

Here are the four Christmas songs for this week's battle:

1.  Hey Santa by Carnie and Wendy Wilson.  Brian's two daughters in this delightful Christmas song.  


2.  Mele Kalikimaka by Jimmy Buffett.  I had to put a little tropics in the battle this week.  Just recently, parts of Hawaii got over two feet of snow!  


3.  Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives.  A classic Christmas song that was used in the Christmas movie Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer.


4.  Believe by Josh Groban.  From the movie, Polar Express. 



Here they are for your copy/paste convenience:

Hey Santa/Carnie and Wendy Wilson.
Mele Kalikimaka/Jimmy Buffett
Holly Jolly Christmas/Burl Ives
Believe/Josh Groban

Hope all of you have a great week and a magical Christmas!

Cindy

Here is the cute and funny video of Carnie and Wendy's Hey Santa that shows the girls.  Towards the end, it shows Justyn, Jonah and Audree Wilson.  You can also hear Uncle Carl's vocals as he sings, "It's Christmastime". This Wednesday, December 21st, would've been Carl's 70th birthday.

Gold - Burl Ives - Solid gold Christmas classic.  Sometimes you can't compete with the standards.

Silver - Buffett - I prefer Bing Crosby's version, but this is the one Christmas song by Buffett that actually makes sense IMO (I'm usually not a big fan of summertime island rock used for Christmas music).  

Bronze - Josh Groban - I'm not generally a fan of his, though I'll admit he's quite the vocalist.  I just saw The Polar Express for the first time a couple days ago, and loved it.  

Tin - The Wilsons - Forgive me, but I've never really cared for this song. 

I really like Groban's version of O Holy Night

Availability [mine]  is at question and at risk right now so I'm going to vote early if not often this week Cindy. [biggrin]

Hey Santa/Carnie and Wendy Wilson.  A nice job by the ladies back when they had something good goin' on.  This weeks Gold standard... ... ... but barely and by Rudolph's little red nose.  I wonder why they so seldom record anymore?  That last Wilson/Phillips c d...done about 10-12 years back...was pretty good.  Better than most POOP that women seem to get on the radio with these days.

Holly Jolly Christmas/Burl Ives.  This goes back to when I was just a little fella.  Burl kinda looked like the original Miracle on 34th Street Santa/Kris Kringle...Edmund Gwenn.  Nice sentiment.  Respectful...and fun.  Burl was an actor too.  Good singin' voice. Silver.

Mele Kalikimaka/Jimmy Buffett  Not a traditional song for me.  Never owned it.  Seldom heard it.  BUT...I like it.  Bing's is cool too but as I said...I seldom heard it back in the day so, for my ears, Jimmy can share the credit with him.  I wonder if Warren Buffett can sing it?   Bronze.


Believe/Josh Groban.  Tin.  I don't believe.  AND...The tooth ferry can go fly a cavity filled/lead-laden tooth off into the wild blue yonder as far as I'm concerned.  Drop it off somewhere in China...maybe at the Chairman's house.  Seems that they like lead a LOT over there.  Bah!  HUMBUG!!!!!!!!!!  [wink]

Hi Cindy.

So, Christmas is still not over, huh?  Bears hibernating peacefully begin to come to mind.

Reminding us that talent counts for nothing if you have famous parents, and how much like his daddy he looks.  Cruz Beckham, heartily funded.



And a lovely version of "What Child is This?" from Vanessa Williams.

Here are 2 - TOO well kept B.J. Thomas Christmas secrets... ... ...  Yes...the guy who did such a fine and successful job with Don't Worry Baby all those years ago recorded 2 of my ALL -TIME favourite Christmas songs just one year later and oh-so-sadly [imho]  MOST people have never heard them.





Those 2 songs are CLASSICS...at my house.

America's Dan Peek [the late]

The Star ...



I was never a You Light Up My Life fan but this little vocal thing from the Boones...Gift Of Love...works.

And one more...in memory of Greg Lake...performed and filmed live at St. Bride's Church, of all places.  Here's Greg and Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson along with David Arch on keyboards, Florian Opahle on acoustic guitar and the church choir.

The song pretty much suggests that everything to do with Christmas...from every angle...is nothing but pure unadulterated 'bunk' and that it's all our doing.  "The Christmas we get...we deserve."  We sure do 'settle'.

Gold (easily) - Carnie and Wendy.
Silver - Burl Ives - cheesy - but sometimes that's ok
Bronze - Josh
Tin - Buffett - I know he's very popular but I've never figured out his appeal. 

Happy Christmas to you,

Pete
