MEME: Sunday Seven - Episode 15

Image hosted by

With just a couple of weeks left before Christmas, some radio stations around the country are going to holiday-only programming, meaning their entire playlists consist of nothing but holiday music, no matter what their normal format might be. Recently, ASCAP released a list of the top 25 Christmas songs, according to performance counts. Be thinking about that for a moment.

But first, it's time to recognize the first to play last week. Though Wil of "The Daily Snooze" was first to leave a comment, it was Jamilyn of "Jamilyn's Quiz Central" who was first to leave a link to her specific entry, so she technically is the first to have played. Congratulations, Jamilyn, and be sure to visit both great blogs!

On to the challenge!

What are your top seven favorite Christmas songs? Use ASCAP's list for an idea starter, but you need not pull your seven only from that list. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, list up to seven holiday songs you like to hear this time of year.

Either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered "first to play," a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.)

  1. Little Drummer Boy
  2. Deck The Halls
  3. Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer
  4. Barking Jingle Bells
  5. The Chipmunks' "Christmas Cheer"
  6. Greensleeves (Whose Child Is This )
  7. O Tannenbaum
Ok, now that I've done my list, I'm off to see how it compares to the ASCAP list ... hmmm, just one (numero uno, above). What do you know? I might be a whole lot stranger than the average bear...
