Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

John Denver? I think.

My favorite cover of that is by Bruce Robinson & Kelly Willis. I don't now if there's a YouTube of that one.

RadioJonD has you more than covered---the only one I can think of offhand is "If We Make It Through December."

There's "The Frozen Logger"---it's tongue-in-cheek funny, though.

There's a very old Christmas song (i.e., back in the Victrola days) called "Come and Spend Christmas with Me," in which a girl invites a beggar child to come home and spend Christmas with her, as the girl is lonesome because her little sister has died.

I can tell you where to find "The Frozen Logger" and "Come and Spend Christmas with Me" if you can't find them elsewhere.

I have a suggestion that is no longer on YouTube, it is called "Shopping Bag Menagerie" by Rotary Connection.

Here are the lyrics:
Oh, what's happening to Christmas, the giving from the heart?
Now we give what only have pocketbooks allow
The kids who should be getting love will get a chemistry set
So, we put it in our shopping bags
And hurry home to rest

It's just one day till Christmas as I hurry to the store
The holidays are different and their meanings, I'm not sure
I've worked so hard the whole year long to purchase happiness
Now I put it in my shopping bag
And hurry home to rest

So we stopped at the counter
To buy a pair of socks
Last year, we gave him a tie
And the shirt we bought the year before his size

The snow upon the ground was once a joyful sight to see
But now it's inconvenient to have snow beneath my feet
So many empty souls I've seen is really quite a mess
So, I put it in my shopping bag
And hurry home to rest

I think "Christmas shoes" is the saddest song ever
although I also like "santa bring my baby back to me"---Elvis Presley

Someone Is Missing At Christmas... can't go wrong with a good ol' fashioned "Somebody I loved is dead" song...



Also, Artificial Flowers by Bobby Darin... it's not *exactly* a Christmas song, but it IS an updated version of "The Little Matchstick Girl" and does involve freezing to death...

I want winter songs too, so that's really perfect!

Now here is one I don't get that makes a lot of lists:

Vince Guaraldi – “Christmas Time Is Here” ??? It is softly done but it reminds me of a beautiful dark snowy night. Where do people get sad?
