    Talking Christmas songs.

    Since it is only about 6 weeks untill christmas and it happens to be one of my favourite times of the year I have been listening to Elvis christmas songs and getting all excited


    Do any of you have a favourite Elvis christmas song....I do

    It as to be "Blue Christmas" I just love everything about the song.

    Others favourites are.....


    I' ll be home for Christmas
    White Christmas
    And the great rocking song "Santa bring my baby back to me"

    And one for my kids "Here Comes Santa Claus"

    I wonder if EPE would ever consider releasing one of Elvis' songs for Christmas like "Blue Christmas"

    love and peace,
    Susan.

    Holly Leaves and Christmas Trees: for its heartbreaking melancholy

    I'll be home on Christmas Day: for its bluesy feel

    Oh come all ye faithfull (sp): wonderful choral sound, like my gospel fave "Amazing Grace" :worthy: :worthy:

    Well, and actually just about every X-mas song our man did :worthy:

    My favourite is Holly leaves and christmas trees. It's just so gentle and makes me feel so like christmas. The alt. take is also very good. To bad we have only 5 alt. takes form the christmas songs.

    I like "If I Get Home On Christmas Day" very much. Beautifully sang by Elvis and great work of the band.

    "Santa Claus Is Back in Town" just kicks ***. I love it.

    And "Blue Christmas" is really a classic. Great to see it at the Comeback Special, too.

    Merry Christmas Baby
    Winter Wonderland (despite Elvis' dislike for this song)
    The Wonderful World Of Christmas
    On A Snowy Christmas Night

    ...in addition to many already mentioned.

    If I Get Home On Christmas Day just might be my very favorite (I hate to commit though ).
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    Silent Night. Probably my favourite Christmas song even when Elvis isn't singing it, but Elvis' version is fantastic. Merry Christmas Baby is a classic performance too, as are Blue Christmas and I'll Be Home for Christmas. A weird observation here; does anyone else hear the influence of Bing Crosby in in Here Comes Santa Claus? It's particularly obvious in the "down Santa Claus lane" lines.

    Love his christmas songs. Espacially Merry Christmas baby and Santa Claus is back in town. Denny, I think it is a great idea if FTD would make a cd with alternate christmas songs

    Love the Christmas feel and I especially love "Blue Christmas", "If everyday was like christmas" and "Santa claus is back in town".

    I think that there has been a move in recent years to move away from making decent Christmas songs in the UK it always seems to be love songs by boy bands, we could do with a novelty Christmas record or something that at least implies that it is a least a Christmas song.
