christmas mix  
I'm looking for a CD that has all the classic Christmas songs. I have a lot of trouble finding ones that have a good representation of the classic covers. Either a CD only has a few songs, or they're odd, crappy covers. The kind of songs I'm looking for:

1. Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire
2. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
3. Winter Wonderland
4. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
5. White Christmas
6. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
7. I'll Be Home For Christmas
8. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
9. Little Drummer Boy
10. Jingle Bell Rock
11. Silver Bells
12. Blue Christmas
13. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
14. It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
15. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
16. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
17. O Come, All Ye Faithful
18. Silent Night

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be very grateful! :)

I could make you a CD that has most of these songs.

Ahhh--you're so sweet! :>) It's just that I was going to see if I could buy it somewhere, like, in the next day or two, because after Christmas passes I'm probably just going to be like, 'meh', and not care anymore. ;>) But then again, I could always have the cd for next year!

The longer and less stalkery answer is that it's hard to find a good compliation album, most of them seem to have a few true hits, a few sound-alike hits, and a bunch of crap.

If you aren't averse to iTunes, you can try previewing and then buying some individual tracks there (or search P2P) and make your own Ultimate Christmas Mix CD. I did get a few good things off of both iTunes and Limewire last year.

But the offer to make CD stands. I am a little obsessed with Christmas music, I have hundreds of songs.

I don't have any of that stuff.

But I AM going to kill you--dude, what is wrong with your eyes?

Heeeeeeeeeeee. I'm your Christmas stalker. ::tickles you::

my eyes? what? what? ::confused::

*tickles you back*

You just cracked up over a Blade quote in naamah_darling's LJ. Hee! Here's the direct quote:

"Hey! It's Blade! I'm going to kill – Dude, what the fuck is up with your eyes?"

And I was all excited when I saw you over there. ::blushes:: xoxo

Frank Sinatra's and Ella Fitzgerald's cover almost all of those, and are two of my favorite holiday albums.

Thank you. :) I'm kind of looking for a variety of original covers, but will keep this in mind!

There's the Phil Spector Christmas album, which has a number of these by his artists (the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love etc.).

Christmas songs, carols and such
"The best Christmas album in the world...ever", issued by Virgin is wonderful. Two CDs, one of all the classic chestnuts you could wish for and the other more modern songs (not awful but the first is better). I'd say that this is probably one of the better compilations out there. It doesn't have as many hymns as you'd like though it does have an amazing "Gaudete" by Steeleye Span. It's geared to a British market so there will probably be a few tracks you've never hears of Go here to see a list of tracks.

Now That's What I Call Christmas has a lot of the classics on Disc 1. A chunk of Disc 2 doesn't bear thinking about, but maybe it would make a good coaster for your eggnog.

Not quite what you were after, but have a look at:

Loads of jazzed up traditional Crimble standards. If you're not into jazz, however, you'll detest it with a passion. And you wanted the originals anyway.

Sorry.
