From Sing-Along with the Very Best of Christmas Music:
❄For a beautiful sacred carol try “The Star Carol” sung by Simon & Garfunkel. This soft and gentle song tells the story of the manger scene.
❄“The Little Drummer Boy” sung by The Harry Simeone Chorale-the song about the boy who had no gift for baby Jesus so he played his drums.
❄“Silent Night”- a powerful, exquisitely expressive version sung by Mahalia Jackson.
❄“O Holy Night” sung by the Ray Conniff Singers.
❄“Do You Hear What I Hear?” sung by Bing Crosby.
❄“Mary’s Boy Child” sung by Harry Belafonte.
❄You can hear the traditional instrumental “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson or on this album try the Rockin’ surfer sound of The Ventures.
❄“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” sung by Andy Williams.
❄“Here Comes Santa Claus” sung by Gene Autry.
❄“White Christmas” sung by Rosemary Clooney. (The library owns the movie.)
❄“It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” sung by Perry Como.
❄“We Wish You A Merry Christmas” sung by the warbling folk sound of The Weavers.
❄“It’s A Marshmallow World” sung by Brenda Lee.
❄“Winter Wonderland” sung by Johnny Mathis.
❄“Happy Holiday” sung by Steve Lawrence & Edie Gorme.
❄“All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth” -a song where someone is imitating a child who whistles when he sings because he is missing his two front teeth-Spike Jones.
❄Elmo & Patsy’s “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”. The title says it all. I would like to describe the song but I can't, and I shouldn't, so I won't.
❄“Monster’s Holiday” sung by Bobby “Boris” Pickett and the Crypt Kickers, a song of how the monsters want to rob Santa’s sleigh. But before they can, Santa’s down the chimney and giving them presents like werewolf fangs and bat wings and a new speed shaver for Wofman.
❄“I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” (scandalous) sung by Molly Bee.
