Music Monday – The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

For many people, this is the most wonderful time of the year.  For others, it’s absolutely dreadful.  Still many other fall somewhere in between.  In the spirit of Christmas, this week’s Music Monday will be a brief listing of a few of my favorite Christmas songs.

‘Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do?
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

Let’s get this started with the young and yummy and uber-talented Mariah Carey.  From 1994, here’s All I Want For Christmas Is You.

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special.

Let’s keep the Christmas party going with my favorite artist, George Michael.  Here’s Wham! with Last Christmas.

For those looking for a slightly more upbeat version, here’s Cascada’s version.

And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace

Unfortunately, I cannot find a video for my favorite Christmas song, “God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen” by Robert Goulet, so you’ll have to simply listen to it here on YouTube.  I love the pacing of the song combined with his deep voice.  It just works for me.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!  …and if you don’t celebrate it, I still wish you the good will of the Christmas season.
