Christmas Carols are something I find people tend to feel very strongly about. Having to listen to ANY music you don't like for hours on end suck, but it especially sucks when it feels like said music is butchering songs you DO like, which is why people who work in places that play christmas tunes complain about the music at Christmas but not necessarily the rest of the year (my sympathies; I feel the pain!) But we're not here to complain! What are your favourite carols, and because carols are possibly the most oft-covered and re-covered songs of all time, by which artist/artists? Link and share! Do you tend to prefer old classics from fifties or sixties? Do you like any carol covered by your favourite artist, regardless of year? I love love LOVE old carols. I am in the process of playlisting some albums from Sinatra, Dean Martin, and the Jackson Five; they're what I grew up with for years on end, so some other tunes that change the meter, speed, lyrics, or sound, just sound 'wrong' to me. what about you guys?
