there's also a 25th anniversary compilation which I just bought which has most of their best songs.

I grew up listening to them so there's not necessarily a particular album of there's that's my favorite just all their old stuff.

Bing (search engine) Crosby (artist name)

Google (search engine) Stills and Nash (artist name)

It took me a second or two to catch that, lol.

Gotcha. Pretty much all their stuff is on Spotify so I thought I'd ask for a starting point.

Sounds great. I also still watch all of the essential Christmas specials with the family. It's just an all around great time of year. Which reminds me, I have to change my avatar.

I really hate Christmas music with a passion, but this is rather soothing. Probably the only Christmas music I intend to hear for the whole year if I can help it.

damn what's up with everybody on this site hating christmas music? Glad you at least like Crosby though I know what u mean about his voice being soothing. Silent night is usually overly sappy and peppy IMO but his version is relaxing.

Also @Bach96, EPIC avatar

Christmas music is the equivalent of being beaten over the head with a shovel while bright lights flash in your eyes and small children surround you screaming gibberish.

lol whatever. I can see why people get sick of generic xmas music being played in the stores and all over the radio, BUT there are some damn solid xmas artists, including...

Nat King Cole
Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Mannheim Steamroller
Bing Crosby

these are essential IMO

@JT,

I actually did listen to it. Like you said it wasn't nearly as good as their other stuff. (Aqualung, Thick as a Brick, Passion Play, and Minstrel are all AMAZING)

However i'll give it another listen since it's only 2 weeks until xmas

Birthday Card at Christmas
A Chritmas Song
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
A Winter Snowscape

The old songs they've re-recorded are obviously good too but not as good as the original versions. (Bouree, Ring Out Solstice Bells, Weathercock, Fires at Midnight)
