    :tree: Christmas Crooners

    I love listening to the classic Christmas songs by the old "crooners" from back when. Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee, Perry Como...There are so many that I love to listen to. Do you have a particular artist or artists that you enjoy listening to?

    Bing Crosby; Dean Martin; Judy Garland; Doris Day.

    I remember the Perry Como show, he just stood there and sang and people loved it. He was so easy going and natural when performing. Bing Crosby had the same ability, so did Dean Martin. They all just had the voice, the talent, they didn't need no flash. They were truly singer/performers whom people loved.

    Judy Garland's version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" is my absolute favorite! :D Doris Day is also wonderful, as well as Rosemary Clooney. I love their voices!

    I have the "Meet Me in St. Louis" dvd where Judy sings the song and I also have it on a Christmas CD

    I have Rosemary Clooney singing with Bing, Danny Kaye and Vera Ellen on a Bing Crosby Christmas CD and they are singing the song "Snow" from White Christmas. I also have the White Christmas dvd.

    I have been a Bing Crosby fan since I was a teen, when other girls were going crazy over the Beatles, I was listening to my Bing records.

    I'm a huge fan of the classic crooners, also.

    Some faves:

    Frank Sinatra
    -"Mistletoe and Holly"
    -"The Christmas Waltz"

    Dean Martin
    -"Baby, It's Cold Outside"
    -"Marshmallow World"

    Nat King Cole
    -"The Christmas Song" (of course)

    "Roger Whitaker
    -"The Holly and the Ivy"
    -"Christmas is Here Again"

    Andy Williams
    -"The Most Wonderful Time of the Year"
    -"Happy Holiday / The Holiday Season"

    Johnny Mathis
    -"It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas"

    Tony Bennett
    -"Snowfall"

    and many more...

    One type of Christmas music I've been paying a lot of attention to, and listening to, are the older classical songs, and the carols of the Baroque Era and 16th and 17th Centuries. Many are relatively obscure, but they are really hidden gems. It's like being introduced to a brand of music you never knew existed. Depending on the mood, I'll either be listening to Gene Autry singing " Rudolph", or the Eugene Ormandy Orchestra's arrangement of "Jesus, Joy of Man's Desiring". It adds an entirely new dimension to the season.

    And, I feel few songs capture the entirety of the season much better than the songs that make up "The Nutcracker".

    Good stuff.
