Talkin’ Turkey With Tim Babb
So as I mentioned the other day, I am already getting into Christmas mode. One thing I miss every year is having a good selection of Christmas songs on my iPod. Most of my Christmas music is from Disneyland, and while that stuff is great, there are a lot of classic Christmas songs that I love that I would like to have. So my thought was to grab one of those best of Christmas CDs. I had no idea it would be this hard to choose.
I’m down to two compilation CDs, Now Christmas and Now That’s What I Call Christmas. I kid you not, they are practically named the same thing. They have a lot of overlap of songs too. No matter which one I buy, I’ll get Bing Crosby singing White Christmas, Nat King Cole singing The Christmas Song, Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms, and a few other overlaps.
But then it gets tricky…who’s version of The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is best? Johnny Mathis or Andy Williams? One has the version of Let It Snow from Die Hard but the other has Do They Know It’s Christmas? by Band Aid.
On the other hand they both have crap I’ll never listen to. One has Justin Bieber warbling some Christmas monstrosity, the other has N’Sync doing the same thing.
One has Thurl Ravenscroft…the other has Tony Bennett! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!
Screw it…I just ordered both.
