It’s getting closer!
Our tree is up and I have most of the presents I need to give. Of course, I’ve got a ton of cooking to do, but, hey, I’ve got Saturday and Sunday. No cooking, except for the turkey, I think, will be done on Christmas. (Famous last words, right?)
I wanted to take this time to wish everyone a happy holiday and a restful one, too. Having fun is part of the season, don’t let the mundane things drag you down.
Oh, yes, my list of my fun Christmas songs. These are the songs that really pep me up – it’s not “officially” Christmas unless I can hear at least three out of these five songs. Let’s begin, shall we?
If you missed my list of classic Christmas songs, do click here.
5. Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Bruce Springsteen
I have to admit that this song makes me laugh every time I hear it. It’s so ridiculous, with Bruce yelling at the crowd and his band…honestly, he sounds as if he had a little too much “Christmas cheer”, but it’s definitely a fun song to listen to.
4. All I Want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey
I love Mariah. She just doesn’t give a f*ck. Diva was able to put a price on her time by getting a settlement from that millionaire fiance of hers. Yes, she is a little loopy but I love her just the same. This is such a fun, bouncy, song that’s about loooooooove at Christmas. It does a cold heart really good!
3. Christmas Rap – The Waitresses
I am a child of the 80s, ’tis true. I didn’t really appreciate the song when it first came out – I thought it was kind of stupid. But, as the years went by, it has grown on me and now I look forward to hearing it. Remember, they did the theme song for Square Pegs?
2. Christmas in Hollis – Run DMC
Oh, yeah, did I mention I was a child of the 80s? Here’s Run DMC’s version of a Christmas song. And yes, I’ll be cooking collard greens.
1. Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt
I grew up on Madonna and am so impressed at how long she was able to keep a career going, but her version is simply….not very good. This is the unique Eartha Kitt (the best Catwoman), in a cute and sexy version of the song.
There you have it folks!
Have a lovely holiday!
