I will listen to pretty much any version of the Nutcracker Suite. This one, though not traditional, is very upbeat and festive.
"The Chipmunk Song"
Let's be real. I was a kid during the run of the second Chipmunks television show, so I ate up all their stuff. I particularly liked Theodore because he was just plain nice.
"Carol of the Bells"
A little more traditional here. I particularly like the more traditional versions of this one, which is why I picked this video instead of say, that of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
"Little Saint Nick"
I had this on cassette and loved it.
"Let It Snow"
As an adult, my love for the, uh . . . classier Christmas songs has grown.
"Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth"
It's not necessarily that this is a favorite, but how could I leave out this video? It's also kind of fun to check out the Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly parody.
And just for fun, "Hallelujah Chorus" performed by a flash mob . . .
