Pop Culture Reflection: Less Overplayed Christmas Songs

Sharing my favorite Christmas ornament and song lyric

Christmas songs become inescapable from hearing all day in December whether it’s blasting from the radio at the workplace or in malls and department stores.

During my holiday shopping I enjoy when I can hear the less overplayed gems such as: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Barenaked Ladies with Sarah McLachlan,  So This is Christmas by John Lennon,  Mele Kalikimaka by Bing Crosby and The Chanukah Song by Adam Sandler.

I still have my favorite’s in the classic Christmas hits even though I know I’m going to hear the songs cycle through the radio five times throughout the day like: Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee, Feliz Navidad by José Feliciano and The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole.

An article from Yahoo Music this week featured the top 20 most downloaded Christmas songs and it was an interesting list with the number one being,  All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey.

Despite what gets overplayed, I like listening to the Christmas classics and the updated versions  because it gets me into the holiday mood.

Here is a link from RoadCaptinEntertain’s You Tube channel for my favorite traditional Christmas song.
