Any pop/country singer who does a rendition of "Oh Holy Night" makes me grind my teeth.

"Santa Baby" is a lot of fun.  Eartha Kitt's is the classic version.  I also like Madonna's "Betty Boop" version.

As everyone knows, I'm a huge Madonna fan, but I really don't listen to her version very often, I almost find her style of singing it annoying.  She took all of Eartha's sexiness and vampiness out of it.

Apparently Eartha once said at a concert before performing the song:

"I used to have a lot of fun with this song............... and then madonna recorded it."

Does that include Josh Groban?  I really like his version.

I bored Lynne with sixteen versions of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" on youtube this weekend.

Consecutively?  Shocked

At one sitting?  Shocked

What was that? Aversion therapy?  Shocked

(Heard there was snow in Bahnstable this weekend--or, as the woman on the Weather Channel said it, Barn-stable.  Roll Eyes )

Yep. His version is choppy, and he breathes in illogical places. "It is the night," (breath), "of our dear Savior's birth," and "Oh night," (breath), "divine" are just 2 examples. More than that, he sings everything at the same level of intensity...or lack thereof.

Even Nat King Cole butchers this song, and I LOVE his voice. Pop, country, jazz, etc. singers have no idea how to handle the music.

Pavarotti's version(s) are quite musical, but its hard to get past the horrendous English. Even when he sang it in the original French, he made sounds that are unnatural to the language.

One of the best versions I've heard is by Plácido Domingo. He's good in both English, and the original French.

For some reason "What Child is This?" works my last nerve!  Maybe it's because of the Greensleeves thing!

I'm exaggerating - it was wonderful!  And there was a dusting of snow on the ground Sunday morning.

I just realized I actually have Michael Buble' on my iPhone - "Cold December Night" - it was one of those Starbucks freebies, which I rely on to ever hear new music.  I really like it!

This version of Jingle Bells by Barbara Streisand annoys the crap out of me.

Don't you go hatin' on Barbra!  At least she makes fun of the line:  "...misfortune seemed his lot; he got into a drifting bank, and then we got upsot.  Upsot?"
