Favorite "Song of the Season"?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by mrkirker, Dec 18, 2008.

  1. Thanks for clearing that up, Pistol! I got curious and found this ....Is this the original "Chimpmunks roasting on an open fire?" - It's hilarious! :D:D

  2. Call me crazy, but when I go out to take care of the chickens, I sing to them. Really gets the Tom turkey going! They all really start cackling, and running around. Perhaps my screeching isn't pleasant to them, can you imagine that?!?! :eek: They are still laying over 70 eggs a day in spite of temps in the single digits and below. They really get going over Jingle Bell Rock. Maybe it is the dancing.:D

    My favorite Christmas song is and has always been O Holy Night sung slow and quietly like a lull-a-by.

    Remember the way the crowds went wild whenever Elvis or the Beatles performed? Those chickens are probably just swooning in ecstacy:D

    Anything from Mannheim Steamroller is touching to my soul.

    Good stuff for sure.

    On the lighter side--"Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer", serious-- Bing Crosby's--- "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" don't know why, never enjoyed his singing, not from that era, but it just brings out the spirit.

    "Robert Earl Keene's "Merry Christmas from the family" reminds me of my ex-inlaws, but still my favorite.

    Doug, familiarity with folks that fit the song is why I chose it too... My step-brother's wife's family is pretty close to the song, and everyone admits it. :eek:

    Her dad has a hard time not mooning people after a few hours of flowing Cuervo on Christmas Eve... :eek::p Needless to say, we don't stick around long enough for that. ;)

    Yes, that's a good one. Robert Earl: Soul of a poet, voice like a cement-mixer!

    I would have to list three - - -

    The Christmas portion of the Messiah including the Hallelujah Chorus
    Lo, How a Rose Ere Blooming
    O Holy Night - We have a good friend who sings a very nice version at church.

    I favor very little by Garth Brooks, but one of not so big hits I just love. "Bellau Wood"

    "Belleau Wood"

    Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence
    Over Belleau Wood that night
    For a Christmas truce had been declared
    By both sides of the fight
    As we lay there in our trenches
    The silence broke in two
    By a German soldier singing
    A song that we all knew

    Though I did not know the language
    The song was "Silent Night"

    Then I heard my buddy whisper,
    "All is calm and all is bright"
    Then the fear and doubt surrounded me
    'Cause I'd die if I was wrong
    But I stood up in my trench
    And I began to sing along

    Then across the frozen battlefield
    Another's voice joined in
    Until one by one each man became
    A singer of the hymn

    Then I thought that I was dreaming
    For right there in my sight
    Stood the German soldier
    'Neath the falling flakes of white
    And he raised his hand and smiled at me
    As if he seemed to say
    Here's hoping we both live
    To see us find a better way

    Then the devil's clock struck midnight
    And the skies lit up again
    And the battlefield where heaven stood
    Was blown to hell again

    But for just one fleeting moment
    The answer seemed so clear
    Heaven's not beyond the clouds
    It's just beyond the fear

    No, heaven's not beyond the clouds
    It's for us to find it here
