I LOVE Christmas Carols!

O Holy Night is one of my favorites. I've heard a lot of different versions. For me, nobody does it better than Mahalia




Looking for some good Christmas streaming? Look no further:

I'm not a big fan anymore. Maybe due to them starting to be played as early as Halloween nowadays. But having said that, the one you posted above is quite nice.

RIP Patty Donahue

LOL, I know what you mean. My husband is very good-natured to put up with all the music. I usually wait until Thanksgiving to go full-bore, tho. Thanks for stopping

Thanks for that. I had never heard of that song, or of the Waitresses, or of Patty Donahue. This is a nice tribute:

Here's me doin' one of my faves: Pretty Paper, by my favorite singer/songwriter Willie Nelson. Sorry you have to stare at my tree. I had some dental work done and didn't wanna be seen that day.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Don't know why I can't link it. If you are truly interested, look up Stacie Brumley covers Pretty Paper.

So sorry I am an amatuer poster on a 3G phone here...

Check out the lyrics when you get a chance - in the end, love wins, and that, to me, is what Christmas is about.

The 80s were a great time to be young, and I am glad that you got to hear this song for the first time - Merry Christmas!

I did! I could hardly hear them in the vid - great song


I just never heard that one - odd - that was my time, too. In fact I was born two weeks before Patty! I was lucky, though - I quit smoking when I was 30, after my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. Smoking took both of my parents.

O Holy Night is also my favourite GirlGenius,we only disagree on the version,I also love Chrismas carols.

Love her or love to hate her,she has some serious pipes which builds mostly from 3.30 onward crank up the volume to better hear the notes she hits.



If I find some different carols etc I`ll post them here.

That is a great rendition, particularly the latter part. I enjoy so many versions of this classic. I think I give Mahalia the nod, in part, because she was a particular favorite of my mom, who is now deceased. I remember mom raving about her when I was a kid. I just kind of nodded supportively (yeah, Mom, great song), much more interested in the Beatles, lol. It took me a good while to appreciate the timelessness and beauty of this wonderful song

Yes, that is definitely one of the very best versions. Possibly the most popular version. It seems to be the one I hear most on the radio! Thanks for stopping and have a Joyous Christmas and Blessed 2011

Oh! sorry to hear about your Mom GirlGenius.

Yesterday after posting here I searched Ytube for a good redition of Silent Night,I listened to many,none really grabbed me as an ultimate,yet I`m so glad I did search,my Mrs and myself got to listen to some great talent anyway.

Bare in mind I`m still searching for a vid of Silent Night that I would consider above all others (for that want of a better word/phrase) I`m going to post these as they are well worth listening to.

To this vid,when these guys start singing in the beginning individually they are pretty average,yet when they start harmonising with each other,they take it to a different plane,then toward the end they try doing to much with the song and wreck their sound and the song imo.


This is the best I`ve found,from David Archuleta who I hadn`t heard of before and now know he was an Idol winner.Great voice I like it.



Now I`d just like to go back and post one more of Oh Holy Night.

This needs to be listened to,this guy Nick Pitera has one of the best falsetto voices Ive ever heard,I`m torn between being really weired out and very impressed all rolled into one.

Thank you, gps777 for sharing those vids. I am not sure about the last one but I think you hit the nail on the head - very weird!
