Sunday Song Lyric

We know Eugene’s least favorite Christmas song, but what’s your favorite?  I agree with Eugene that Silent Night, Holy Night is “suberb.”  It’s always been one of my favorite “classic” carols.

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

What of popular or rock-n-roll Christmas songs? I’ve always liked the Kinks’ “Father Christmas,” but I’ve posted a Ray Davies holiday song before.  “Christmas Wrapping” by The Waitresses is also a longstanding favorite of mine — it’s an ’80s classic.

“Bah, humbug!” No, that’s too strong
‘Cause it is my favorite holiday
But all this year’s been a busy blur
Don’t think I have the energy

To add to my already mad rush
Just ’cause it’s ’tis the season.
The perfect gift for me would be
Completions and connections left from

Last year, ski shop,
Encounter, most interesting.
Had his number but never the time
Most of ’81 passed along those lines.

So deck those halls, trim those trees
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer,
I just need to catch my breath,
Christmas by myself this year.

Here are the full lyrics, the song set to x-mas lights, and a cover by The Donnas

So those are two of my favorites.  What are yours?
