    Default Christmas Music Thread

    Sitting here in my car listening to Handle's Messiah, reflecting on what a beautiful piece the whole thing is.

    Will post sound bites later when I get home if I can figure out the recording NPR is using.

    What are your favorite Christmas songs/pieces/music/videos/etc?

    Mainly because it's my wife, but this is my favorite Christmas song ever, now.

    Pretty sure I posted this last year. I know it will not have much meaning because it is based on our hometown landmarks, but here it goes again.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    I love that song Brian, good stuff

    Aside from that and humorous Christmas songs, if it isn't Nat King Cole or the Neville Brothers, I generally can't stand Christmas music as a whole. It just irritates me. Especially when every year someone tries to come out with a rock version of one, or completely changes one. It almost always makes it infinitely worse lol.

    I'm not really a 'country music guy', but Randy Travis has a Christmas album that is really wonderful.

    I know this is a little late, but the gf wanted to go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra for Christmas, so we went. Man, was that a terrible concert, and not at all what we expected. The Christmas classics are cool, but then they have a bunch of slow, crappy solo artists singing terrible songs in the middle. At one point a guy dressed like a bum came out and sang for what felt like 17 minutes, and it was absolutely awful!

    I love me some TSO holiday music, but will never go to a concert again. Awful!

    Wow...I saw the show last year, Lanky, and loved it. Different strokes I guess, huh?

    You know, I don't even know if I thought it was that bad...but I was expecting stuff like this:

    Getting all the slow, solo singer stuff was really out of left-field for me, which is why I think I hated it so much.

    Sorry I missed this thread.

    I've long been a fan of Xmas music...both traditional (the Mormon Tabernacle and I go way, way back) and, as I get older, of original and creative takes on traditional pieces. Here's one of the latter I discovered last year that has a place on the collection I'm working on.

    Awesome.

    Every year around the holidays, I find myself telling someone I'm half-Tribesman.

    Sometimes they'll oblige me by asking, "Which half?"

    To which I get to repond, "The lower one."



    And, in the spirit...

    You guys gave me enough input to search for the videos and make it a nice DVD for next Christmas.

    Thanx
