Buzz In: What Holiday Songs Do You Never Tire of Hearing?

Many people complain about the holiday tunes that drive them completely insane this time of year, especially since holiday songs are practically inescapable, no matter what you do. At the drug store, the gas station, restaurants — they're everywhere! So it's truly impressive that there are still some seasonal songs that don't make us want to grab the earmuffs.

It may be because of my love for Love Actually, but I never tire of hearing "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime" actually has the reverse effect that it has on many people: It makes me happy. I also like most versions of "Joy to the World" (especially the Whitney Houston version featured in The Preacher's Wife), perhaps because it's, well, joyful. And not that it's as "everywhere" as other tunes, but Otis Redding's "Merry Christmas Baby" never fails to make me feel good.

What about you? Are there any songs this season that put a little bounce in your step no matter how often you hear them?

oh hey buzz. I'd like to echo comment #43 by I Am Awesomeness. The Christmas Shoes song makes me cry every time i hear it! That or it reminds me of my dorm room in college. Which one is it? that's one secret i'll never tell. xoxo

The Christmas Shoes by Newsong! (such a beautiful song about a child's love for his mother and the generosity of others during the holiday season). IMO this is the best Christmas song ever ever :) & the song by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra

I love Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You," Josh Groban's "Believe," Burl Ives' "Holly Jolly Christmas," etc. There are so many more but I can't think of them right now.

Not really technically a Christmas song I guess, but - Joni Mitchell's River. Also as others have said - MC's "All I Want for Christmas (Is You)" and Lennon's Happy Christmas (War is Over)

Mary Did You Know White Christmas - Bing Crosby version Christmas Eve Sarajevo/Carol of the Bells - Trans-Siberian Orchestra And best of all Christmas Eve candlelight service where the entire church is holding candles singing Silent Night acapella. So beautiful. I can never make it past the 2nd verse cause I'm crying so hard. laura1jl - I loved that version of Auld Lang Syne too!

I love pretty much all the Christmas music except just this year I've heard only a couple songs I definitely don't care for. But anyway, I love the music from the Nutcracker, Happy Christmas (War Is Over), every Xmas song by The Ronettes, etc. etc.
