The Singalong Christmas Thread.

Postby Penfold » Mon Dec 09, 2013 11:38 pm

Seeing as people are starting to use their Christmas Avatars I thought that a thread dedicated to You Tube Christmas songs, carols, and music might be fun. :D

To kick off the thread I thought a Katzenjammer/Ben Caplan/The Trondheim Soloists version of an old favourite might be a good start. :D

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Oooh - I like that version! :D

This is one I like - Vaughan Williams "Fantasia on Christmas Carols"

:clap: So many great songs! My favorites are the Katzenjammer and Air Force band.

This is what I've been listening to.... 8-)



Didn't realize it was the whole concert! Just meant to put up that first song.

I was introduced to Mannheim Steamroller a few years back. Here's their version of "Joy to the World" :D

Can't really sing along to this one, but it's still brilliant.

Listen.
