My Favorite Things: The Lyrical Version - Classy Classics

You've already perused my small list of new Christmas favorites, so how about some traditional Christmas fun!

I pretty much love EVERY song sung by the Carpenters whether it's Christmas or not. A little Superstar? Yes please! Rainy Days and Mondays? Got it on repeat. I just love Karen Carpenter's voice and I wish she were still around because I'm sure she would have done SO much more with it. It's really a shame that she's gone. Anyways, here are my favorites for Christmastime:
Merry Christmas, Darling
Sleigh Ride (one of my favorites of ALL TIME)
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Another one of my favorites, which I'm pretty sure I discovered by listening to Delilah is by Dan Fogelberg. It's called Same Auld Lang Syne

On the theme of Auld Lang Syne, this song from the Sex and the City soundtrack is now a holiday staple:
I just love her Irish (?) brogue and the simplicity of this song

Love this one, too. It's got the same simple single guitar and beautiful harmony
Bare Naked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

(I know this is a LONG list, but bear with  me. I love this music and you're reading this because you love me, so just deal. From here on out I'll just post links to YouTube, not the actual videos. But I know you'll go watch them because you're sooooo interested in my taste in Christmas music)

Ok, I know that was a LONG list, but you're at the end now! Way to stick with it. So, did I forget anything??
