Brickset Bendybadger Bonusball Bonanza - Snowhitie edition

The bonus ball is a bit late. I could say it's to keep you all on your toes, but I seemed to have trouble getting on the forum last night so I'm blaming external circumstances :)

Anyhoo, still plenty of time before the bonus ball is revealed tonight, so simply answer the question, and 1st 59 answers get a number. If your number then is drawn on this weekends UK national lottery bonus ball then you win, this is open worldwide.

It's the time of year, everyone together... yes, Christmas time is coming, carolls are being sung, mince pies and gingerbread men being baked, or barbies lighted on the other side of the world. I love music and especially Christmas songs. I usually buy myself a new Christmas Cd each year, not got one yet. So, which is your favourite Christmas CD? If you are a more modern person then me and do not play CD's, any album will do, or if you prefer to go for songs, feel free to just pick your favourite Christmas song (rendered by...).

Prize, I feel like it should be something Christmassy, but haven't got any of that lying around so it will have to be a Mixel.

If you would like to volunteer for hosting a bonusball, drop me a line.

    My favorites are Sleddin' Hill by August Burns Red and the handful of metal carols Christopher Lee made. Oh and Theocracy also did a bunch of metal carols I like. Can you sense a theme here?

    The only CD I own which is remotely festive is Enya's 'And Winter Came'

    It has a nice snowy scene, with a random horse on it.... plus Enya, obviously.

    As wifey has been playing them since early November, anything that's not got Christmas songs on. :)
  • sid3windrsid3windr Member Posts: 1,460
    Ehh, last time I saw a CD was... a while back. I mostly hear Christmassy stuff on the radio, and even then there's only one song that pops into my mind, likely to be played a million times this month..... the one and only... Mariah!

    All I want for Christmaassssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.. iiiiiIIIIiiiis.... youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuu!

  • CaptainPirateManCaptainPirateMan Member Posts: 353
    We have a local radio station that plays Christmas music non stop the day after thanksgiving until January 2nd. So they get my pick, lol.
  • redarmyredarmy Member Posts: 741
    Not sure about an album, but if anyone sings Silent Night..gets my vote.
  • FodderFodder Member Posts: 351
    The Aussie version of 12 Days of Christmas...

    "And an emu up a gum tree"
  • janscjansc Member Posts: 60
    I really don't like Christmassy songs, but I do like the one from the Pogues with Kirsty  McCall - Fairytale of New York
  • CoviCovi Member Posts: 334
    For me exactly the same as @sid3windr... Christmas songs equals Mariah!!! The only song I like from trashy, it fits perfectly!
  • FowlerBricksFowlerBricks Member Posts: 1,731
    I've got a CD with a bunch of saxophone Christmas songs. That's my favorite. I'm not sure what it's called...just Saxophone Christmas I think.

    Christmas in the heart - Bob Dylan sing the Christmas hits

    edited December 2017
    Not a fan of albums but the Bing Crosby / David Bowie version of the Little Drummer Boy/ Peace on Earth is an awesome cover/collaboration/ mash up (that was made long before such things were the norm.
    Personal favorite though is Do they know it's Christmas.  Not for just the song but the entire story behind Band Aid.  An album that sold more than five times the amount of discs pressed due solely to generosity and desire to be part of the cause. A massive collaboration that couldn't happen today due to management and egos!
    Makes me miss a simpler time where we had so much more social conscience...and seems so much more important at this time of year...

    The Darkness, Christmas Time (don't let the bells end). Who needs serious!
  • flordflord Member Posts: 797
    Favourite album: Boney M’s Christmas album.

    Favourite song - Darlene Love’s Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).
  • stluxstlux Member Posts: 2,450
    In the 2 weeks prior to Christmas, I just point the Sonos to one of the Christmas radio stations for background music. Ensures there's some variation. Quite like Sinatra's Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let it snow! if I had to pick a song.

    If I put in a disc (rarely happens these days, but our classical music collection is not on the NAS yet), it would likely be Philippe Herreweghe's Collegium Vocale Gent  performing Bach's Christmas Oratorio.

    Thanks for hosting this week @snowhitie!

    Actually, if I can add to my answer, BGC makes some awesome Christmas chiptune!

    Easy: John Denver and The Muppets - A Christmas Together! :D
  • Toc13Toc13 Member Posts: 1,144
    Not a fan of Christmas music. I think it has much to do with working a 15 hour shift in a place that had only 1 Christmas cd.

  • FowlerBricksFowlerBricks Member Posts: 1,731
    @snowhitie: I had the same problem. Was the whole forum offline??

    Reba Mcentire - Merry Christmas to You

    A great voice, and good songs, along with a couple enterianing narrations. We listened to it every year, while I was growing up.
  • starwars4everstarwars4ever Member Posts: 489
    For me I'd have to say the classic Silent Night is my favorite.

    My favorite two songs would have to be Linus and Lucy and Fairytale of New York by The Pogues.

    It's hard to beat the Phil Spector Christmas album - but then I also love the Bob Dylan 'Christmas in the Heart' - love a bit of croaky Christmas carols! *edit* - great to see I'm not the first one to mention this either!
