  2. I have not heard of a couple of these. I will have to check them out when others in the house aren't sleeping ;). I have many favorites but I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day may be my most favorite. I like the Casting Crowns version the best.

  12. Never heard of the Adam Sandler song! I love Christmas songs!

  13. I thought I knew all of the Christmas songs but you have mentioned a few that I've never heard of before. x

  14. I just saw the original Adam Sandler skit on a SNL Christmas special...such a classic. He looked SOOO young in the clip!

  15. You have some great picks here! Have a great weekend!

  16. I like the Michael Buble's and Mariah Carey's songs that you mentioned. Thank you for your weekend coffee share. Merry Christmas to you and your family. See you in 2023.

  17. I haven't heard of some of these, but I agree with you about Adam Sandler's song! We were listening to the radio the other day, and the dj said Mariah Carey's song took several years to hit number 1! It came out in the 90s, but just hit number 1 in 2019, I think! I think my favorite Christmas song would probably be O Holy Night sung by Josh Groban!

    1. I do remember it when it came out in the 90's and I only knew one guy that really loved it (but I'm pretty sure he had a crush on Mariah herself!).

  18. Hi Joanne - great songs - I think mine is Gloria in Excelsis, Mary Did You Know, and Last Christmas by Wham - very different songs but for some reason they always make me think of Christmas. Have a great Christmas with your family. x

    1. Oh yes, those are all quite different.. but equally good! I remember singing Gloria in Excelsis in high school.

  19. I love all these songs too! The only one I haven't heard of is Adam Sandler's Chanukah song. I will have to search it on Spotify

    1. I have so many great memories associated with those songs too.

  21. "Baby Please Come Home" has been my JAM this year for some reason. Not that you can ever go wrong with Darlene Love! Also, because I know you love Elf, check out the song "Christmas Island"--Leon Redbone's version is playing in the background when Buddy asks Jovie out. I woke up with the melody stuck in my head one day (fitting, because I've watched Elf about 50x this year) and then did some digging!

  22. I love 1, 7, 8 and 10!! I just listened to the Hannukah Song last night! Too funny. But, my all time favorite Christmas song is Dream Child by Transiberian Orchestra. Check it out on YouTube or Spotify..

  23. Lovely choice of Christmas songs and some new ones for me too! I do love Rockin Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee. Also reminds me of Home Alone! :)

    1. Yes! I love songs that remind me of my favorite Christmas movies too.

  24. Rockin around the Christmas Tree is such a classic and perfect for this list. I would say Wham! Last Christmas is another classic that plays constantly on my holiday list. Loved these songs you shared for Christmas. Check out my epic coffee maker review. https://www.bauchlefashion.com/2022/12/coffee-maker-guru-my-review-on.html

    1. I think I've heard Wham!'s Last Christmas each time I've gotten in my car this year. It is one of those classic songs and I enjoy. I've heard great things about Nespresso; but I don't drink coffee (I did click over and check out your post though!).

  26. So many good ones! Hadley is a big fan of Christmas songs, so they have been on in our car for over a month. I always love "Dreaming of a White Christmas" and "Walking in a Winter wonderland"

    1. Walking in a Winter Wonderland is a fun one... but I'm picky about which versions of songs I listen to.

  29. It's January 1st and I'm finally getting around to a few blogs to comment. My Spotify Christmas playlist is HUGE. I love Christmas music and my list is very eclectic! Happy New Year.
