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

A Little Holiday Cheer: 13 Songs to Rock Around the Tree December 24, 2011

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


12. Marley & Marley – Statler & Waldorf

11. Meteora – The Christmas Toy

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

10. Cool Yule – Bette Midler

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.


7. Run, Run Rudolph – Chuck Berry

6. Snoopy’s Christmas by The Royal Guardsmen


5. Happy Xmas (War Is Over) – John Lennon & Yoko Ono

This video is disturbing. I think Yoko made it.

4. Last Christmas – Wham!

3. Deck the Halls – Animals of Youtube

2. The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole

1. Let It Snow! – Dean Martin

One of my favorite songs of all time, and my favorite version of it. Nobody can sing it like Dean!
