Whenever that magical 25th is over, I tend to realize how much I miss Christmas music. Now from the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas, I have indulged my love of Christmas rhythms and rhymes, spoilt by song after song spewing from the KOIT radio station: ♫ Ninety-Six Point Fiiiiiiiiiive, K O I T ♫
Sure, in the days after Christmas, it becomes socially unacceptable to listen to these kickin' tunes (just like wearing white after Labor Day, which I personally have never understood). But let's stand up to the man! Let's treat ourselves because we're awesome, and we deserve it! And so, to make it easy for you, I give to you my friends, a list of some of my favorite Christmas jingles.
Starting off with a song that isn't necessarily a classic but is certainly well-loved, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", in this version sung by Jackson 5 (you gotta love little Michael J), is a rocking song. And I happens to love it a lot. And you can't stop me.
You sing it Mariah! Oooh this song gives me chills. I cannot tell you the countless hours I have spent in the shower, trying to sound as good as the sound goddess Mariah. And sorry to dissapoint, but I still don't sound quite as good... but I'm working on it! "All I Want For [next] Christmas" is to sing like Mariah Carey.
And those Honorable Mentions:
"The 12 Days of Christmas"
"The Christmas Song"
"Do You Hear What I Hear"
"Frosty the Snowman"
"It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas"
"Joy to the World"
"My Grown-Up Christmas List"
