Top Ten Christmas Music Pics With Exemplify

Exemplify is kicking off Christmas festivities, today, with the sharing of your favorite Christmas tunes. Kristen, my frieditor (friend/editor/boss), does not just like Christmas in the same way that she does not just like all of her writers or cupcakes. When she likes something it is kind of like us loving something a lot. So, hop over and join in the Christmas fun.

This has been so much fun. I would not search all of this out on my own, but I have enjoyed spending way to much time on it.

In no order, my ten that I could put a finger on…

Hail, Hail To The Newborn King (I think that is the title. We had SO much fun singing this in the praise team last Christmas. I hope that we do it again this Christmas.) – Selah

Jingle Bells by Easter Bloc (This is how you rock a Christmas song.)

Silent Night by Baby Washington (They do it old school. Nice.)

White Christmas by the Drifters (Again, old school.)

White Christmas by Bing Crosby (A favorite. I watch White Christmas, the movie, multiple times during the holiday season. In fact, we watched it/listened to it while we put up Christmas decorations this week.)

Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano (This gives Christmas a little spice. I like it, a lot.)

Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer by Gene Autry (Has anyone really done it better?)

Carol of the Bells by anyone really. I have the Roger Wagner Chorale. (It says fancy Christmas to me.)

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Tony Bennett (My husband sings this all Christmas long.)

Baby It’s Cold Outside by Dean Martin and whatever woman that is singing with him, at the time, because there are several versions. (What a flirty little Christmas jingle!)

Thanks, Kristen! I look forward to sharing Christmas traditions on Thursday on Exemplify’s family channel.

What are your favorite Christmas tunes?


  1. Great list! I love "Baby Its Cold Outside" and another favorite of mine is "Santa Baby".

  2. You are so right about Rudolph! I am a fan of the classics and I don't know why I did not put that one on my list!

    And Dean Martin singing always makes me feel warm inside...He is my McDreamy haha!

  3. I love your list!!! I, too, watch White Christmas several times throughout the Christmas season ... another Bing Crosby classic is The Holiday Inn ... blockbuster has it now and I think you would LOVE IT! :)

  4. Well, it's certainly great to talk about all the classics of Christmas. Some song "remakes" are good and some simply aren't. One classic for our family has always been the Burl Ives version, "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas". In fact, for years our son called Santa "Holly Jolly" because he just thought that was his name.

    Isn't it funny how just the mention of a song can take you back to a warm, cozy place from your past?

  5. "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella" is me ALL. TIME. FAVE.

    I can't find any good versions though. I wish a current artist would record one :/

    Thanks for the comment :) Love your blog!

  6. This post made me laugh out loud! It really is true that when I like something, it is with some passion. Though, you should know, I do love you!

    The Drifters on your list? GENIUS! I love it!

  7. I think the "Hail Hail..." song you're thinking of is "Light of the Stable," which is such a meaningful song with a funky sound. :)

    Rudolph by Gene Autry almost made my list. The album with that song was always the very first I listened to when mom brought out the LPs every year. Great memories.

  8. Great picks. And whenever you're ready for that run, I'm all in... although when RunnerMom came to visit me this past summer, she didn't even break a sweat when we took the streets. Me, on the other hand, needed CPR and several days of rest.


  9. What comment software do you use for your blog?

  10. It is actually just the basic, comes with blogspot, app. I have messed around with the settings for it, though. I want to be able to reply directly, and either can't or don't know how with this app. I am on the hunt for a new one. I will let you know if I find anything amazing.

  11. How could I forget "Feliz Navidad"? I am always humming it!

    This is a fun list. Your blog is adorable! I will definitely add you to Google Reader.

  12. This is so much fun!!
    Looking at your list I see some I could add to mine. There are so many good songs. And old school is awesome. Below I'm listing some I should have added. It's just not Christmas without them.

    Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano

    Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer by Gene Autry

    Carol of the Bells Roger Wagner Chorale.

    It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Tony Bennett

    Baby It’s Cold Outside by Dean Martin

    BTW, I like your site. I'm adding you to my follow list.

  13. Thank you so much. That is so sweet of you! Blessings.

  14. what a great list! I love Carol of the Bells, and also really enjoy the song you have listed from Selah! Their Rose of Bethlehem CD is my favorite Christmas CD.

  15. Oh, you CANNOT leave out "Oh Holy Night" by Point of Grace!!!!

  16. Great list! I sang Silent Night as a child in a Christmas Program...unfortunatley it was almost silent....maybe not one of my favorites! :0)
