Mine's Santa Baby what's yours?

What's your favourite Christmas Song? I kinda like Santa Baby although the MJQ's God Rest You Merry Gentlemen isn't bad either.
Interesting to hear what others think.
Lance.
PS: Ann - here's a jazz(ish) version of Bleak Midwinter.

I have two all-time christmas favourites: "Swingin' Them Jingle Bells" by Fats Waller - pure joyful swing - and "Santa's Secret" by Slam Stewart and Johnny Guarnieri, which is totally hilarious. Either one will cheer you up and banish dark thoughts of the bloody Metro Centre/Eldon Square etc., etc........

I think mine should have read "have yourself a merry little Christmas" the webmaster will know!

You are absolutely correct - my fault for trying to be Mr Knowall!

lilI don't know enough about jazz christmas songs, but I love the carol 'In the Bleak Midwinter', so I'll vote for that if someone can come up with a jazz version. How about it, all you local bands?

Not a local band Ann but this solo piano version by Ken Middleton on YouTube isn't bad at all.

Thank you Lance for that version of 'In the Bleak Midwinter', which was really good to listen to, and I think it could be called jazz. The words of the carol are worth reading, written of course by Victorian poet Christina Rossetti, who was a strange woman who rejected 3 marriage proposals on religious grounds. You really wanted to know that! Ann
