    And a beer!

    Question: 10 to 20 years from now, do you think Christmas songs recorded by artists who are popular today (Destiny's Child, Christina Agulaira, etc...) will be heavily played like Andy Williams and Bing Crosby?

    I don't think so. Granted, there may be one or two now popular songs that are still played but I believe the majority will be forgotten. The classics are that: classic. They will be here long after we're gone.

    Just my two cents.

    The few that are actually good may still be played. Like Norah's "Peace" or maybe even Twisted Sister's "O Come All Ye Faithful."

    But, then again, Bob Rivers was pretty good 15-20 years ago, and now what we thought then were surefire classics (like "Twelve Pains of Christmas" or "Walking 'Round in Women's Underwear") sound pretty hackneyed and tired.

    Thankfully everyone else seems to have realized that Elmo and Patsy unleashed a despicable evil onto mankind with "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," and it seems to get a lot less play the last couple of years.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Flavor of the months like Christina, Beyonce and others will disappear into obscurity a few years from now, no doubt.

    Blasmephy to you Chux on your trashing of the Elmo and Patsy gem. Lord knows, some eons from now, when society forgets our glorious contributions like "Silent Night" and "O Holy Night", "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" will be the sole hymn for some future generation will have left to remember us by.

    yes. I can remember actually asking Santa for the Chipmunks Christmas Album on Cassette Tape years ago.

    Come to think of it, I didn't hear this song at all this year. Almost everytime I turned the radio on I got Josh Groban's Believe or O Holy Night.

    i'd think mariah carey's christmas album (o holy nite and all i want for christmas is you) can go the distance, and possibly brian setzer's contributions. all the rest of the people's releasing seasonal albums now will be long gone and forgotten within a couple seasons.

    While I'm not fans of them either, I would hardly call them flavors of the month. They've both been doing well for quite a while. Whether they record any Christmas classics is another matter. It seems that most Christmas albums these days are just remakes of classic songs, and many of the new songs seem to be love songs as much as Christmas songs.

    Sorry MSP, I should have clarified that their Christmas recordings won't become classics. Flavors of the month? We'll see. If they are still around cranking out hits 10 years from now then I will recant.

    Anyway, today is the day that the local radio has gone balls out for Christmas! Too early, IMO but each station didn't want to be outdone by the other, so as a result, we'll get over a month of Christmas music.

    After last Christmas, I went through iTunes and selected a bunch of songs to make my own Christmas compilation. I didn't buy them then, but probably will sometime soon. Now that Paul McCartney songs are on iTunes, I've added "Wonderful Christmastime" to that list as well.

    Good call, MSP. I hadn't even thought about looking for that one yet!
    Tommy, close your eyes.
