A Little Holiday Cheer: 13 Songs to Rock Around the Tree

I’m a Grinch. I admit it.

But I plan to watch It’s A Wonderful Life this weekend and curl up with some Hogfather.

I’m not immune to either fun nor holiday cheer.

So here:

13.What’s This? – The Nightmare Before Christmas

11. Meteora – The Christmas Toy

Long before there was Woody and Buzz, there was Rugby and Meteora. The cat toy is my favorite.

9. White Christmas – Bing Crosby

The cast members of Holiday Inn were told that one of the love songs was going to be a big hit and to get ready to be singing it for years. No one expected White Christmas to become one of the most popular and iconic Christmas songs of all time.

8. Counting Your Blessings – Bing Crosby & Rosemary Clooney

Rosemary Clooney was a fine actress, and I wish she’d been in more films.

    Hello, Star. It is true that the Lennon/Ono video is disturbing. We dream of a world where such a film would be fiction, but we don’t yet live in that world. Lots left to do.
    A blessed Yule to you, and to all your readers.
