Re: Favorite Bing Crosby Christmas Songs

I recently saw this in a search for a Christmas thread although I am really bringing this thread back from the dead. Mine would have to be;

1. Do You Hear What I Hear?
2. White Christmas (1942 B-take, specifically the Jonzo remaster)
3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
4. I'll Be Home For Christmas
5. O Holy Night
6. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
7. Silent Night (1942)
8. Sleigh Ride (1951?)
9. That Christmas Feeling
10. The Christmas Song (LSO redub)

Honorable mentions; It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, Let It Snow (1962), I Wish You A Merry Christmas, A Time To Be Jolly, I Sing Noel, and Ave Maria.


Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven.

I have tended to the view that it's like picking a favourite child / grandchild / close relative.
Your favourite is the one you are with at the moment, or to which you happen to be listening..

And why would you want to offend any of them by declaring favouritism?

As you say, Richard, they’re all good and enjoyable and depending on your mood at the time.
There are the religious ones and the jolly ones and my favourite- non religious- is The Secret of Christmas- with words of meaning.

Re: Favorite Bing Crosby Christmas Songs

It would be much easier for me to pick the ones that are NOT my favorite, it's a tie really between the never ending tedious 12 Days of Christmas and the Bowie duet mess.  I've removed them both from my Christmas playlist on my computer.  Otherwise ALL of Bing's Christmas songs are my favorite.

Re: Favorite Bing Crosby Christmas Songs

It's difficult to separate the song from the singer but I'd say:
1. White Christmas
2. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
3. Adeste Fideles
4. It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
5. Silent Night
