I am now officiallly in the Christmas mood! I stuck in my custom CD and BLASTED it in the car last night. Tell me what you think and if I am missing any songs on my CD.
1. The Christmas song. Nat King Cole
My favorite Christmas song and the all time classic version.
2. White Christmas. Bing Crosby
Arguably the all time classic Christmas song. Nuff said
3. Little Drummer Boy. Chicago.
Kind of a rocking/jassy version. Gets you going.
4. O Holy Night. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
When the entire choir comes in, guaranteed shivers.
5. Happy Christmas. John Lennon.
Not a traditional Christams song, but it is a good song and it is hard to argue with the with the chorus "War is over, if you want it"
6. Silent Night. Manhatten transfer.
7. Have a Merry Little Christmas. Manhatten Transfer.
Not the Do-Wop Manhatten Transfer, the mellow side of them. If you know MT you know what you will get.
8. Hark the Harold Angel Sings. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
A little harsh for the first couple of seconds coming off the mellowness of MT. But the whole choir singing with horns at the end of the song will have you pushing the play button again as soon as it is over.
AS you can tell my musical taste is far ranging.
If anyone would like a copy drop me an e-mail with your name, address and e-mail adress to Scotts@valex.com. Christmas delivery NOT guaranteed
Post any songs that you like or that I might have missed. Scott
"Right Click", "Save Target As" on the MIDI files. These four are my favorites so far! http://users.stargate.net/~vkkelly/06imman&.mid http://users.stargate.net/~vkkelly/03beth.mid http://users.stargate.net/~vkkelly/02wefre.mid http://users.stargate.net/~vkkelly/chestnut.mid

Sleigh Ride, performed by the Andre Kostalantez Orchestra is the definative verison for me. IMO, none of the contemporary pop or CW stuff isn't Christmas. BTW, I have one of the digital satellite holiday music channel piped over the estate on FM, using one of those micro power transmitters.
I have never heard the Manheim Steamroller CD. But a GREAT CD is the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. None of the songs are traditional Christmas song, it is a combination of classical and rock. That gets me every time. Scott
Scott, finally had time to root a little bit, here is the shortcut to a sample of the Mannheim Steamroller christmas. http://www.amgram.com/hurl.cgi?/userfield/~bb-010017/0002926_0101_00_0002.ra I don't know how to imbed a link, so you'll have to cut and paste.
