I voted for the Nat King Cole version of The Christmas Song.

But if Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses was on the list, I may have voted for that!

Wham!? Really? :o :roll: How did that even make the list?

I'd pick either White Christmas or Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, personally. My mom had an old vinyl of Gene Autry that we listened to every Christmas, and Rudolph was my favorite off that album.

I have to tell you they need to re do the list...it's a bad list. I did vote for John Lennon....

After surviving the election, this is a debate and discussion I am looking forward to.

I am shaking my head at "Wham!" being on there. I never heard the song by Slade.

Christmas of '79 driving home in a blizzard.The 2 1/2 hour drive took 7 hours. At one point we heard, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" on the radio, the girls with us sobbed, but we were and it has always had a special place for me since. btw, Jimmy does a nice job on it
