I will try to get 10 Christmas Songs that aren't specifically religious. We'll see if I can find that many of them on youtube.
1. Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas is You
This might be my favorite Christmas song. It's up there, anyway.
I've loved almost every version I've heard. I've only heard one so far that I did not like. I heard it in the restroom at the mall, and I don't know who it was by.
2. Vince Guaraldi Trio - Christmas Time is Here
Mariah sings my favorite Christmas song with vocals. Vince played my favorite instrumental Christmas song. So sad I had to cover the vocal version.
3. The Drifters - White Christmas
I love this song. It's almost my favorite. It's funny and well-sung at the same time.
It was in Home Alone.
4. Pep Squad - Feliz Navidad
I don't like this song for the talking at the beginning. It borders on racism, but I love the trumpet and the shouting.
5. Lost Dogs - The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)
I do love the original, but the harmonies on this are lovely.
The talking in between singing parts is hokey and kind of annoying, but I love their harmonies.
6. Michael Buble - Santa Claus is Coming to Town
I love the jazzy little "You better watch out..." part near the end.
7. Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone - Baby It's Cold Outside
I like most versions of this song. This is my favorite.
8. Jonathan Coulton - Christmas is Interesting
This is yet another song JoCo wrote that I wish I had written.
9. NewSong - The Christmas Shoes
I don't like that song at all.
9. The California Raisins - Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
I love all of the Claymation Christmas Special.
This is the Temptations version of the song. I think directly their version, but it sounds a bit retooled to me. There is a different higher tenor part than the classic Temptations version I've heard.
I don't feel like looking it up. I'm just going by memory.
10. Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmas Time
I hear that people hate this song. I don't understand why.
I love it!
The lyrics paint a comfy Christmas memory picture for me.
I love the idea of someone saying, "How's your holiday season going?"
and I reply, "Oh, I'm simply having a wonderful Christmas time!"
I like that idea a lot.;
I didn't think I'd be able to think of or find that many.
I could probably find more of my favorite non-religious Christmas songs, but 10 is a good number.
Later in the Christmas season I'll probably do a list of 10 of my favorite religious Christmas songs.
I gotta make something to fill out the rest of the year of Thing-a-Day things...
