Thursday Thirteen/Newer Christmas Songs

As I listen to my Christmas cds every December, I am struck by how wonderful some of the newer, not-yet-traditional Christmas songs are. Titles are followed by the songwriters. I so love each of these songs.

1. Happy Christmas (War is Over) - John Lennon/Yoko Ono

2. Do They Know It's Christmas - Bob Geldof/Midge Ure

3. Hands - Jewel (perhaps not "just" a Christmas song, but it is on her Joy: A Holiday Collection, and the words certainly convey the message of the season; "Only kindness matters.")

4. Grown-Up Christmas List - David Foster/Linda Thompson

5. Christmas Mem'ries - Alan & Marilyn Bergman and Don Costa

Listen here:

6. 2000 Miles - Chrissie Hynde

Listen here:

7. Father Christmas - Ray Davies

8. It Must Have Been The Mistletoe - Douglas Konecky & Justin Wilde

Listen here:

9. Merry Christmas, Alabama (Never Far From Home) - Jimmy Buffett

Listen here:

10. Don't Save It All For Christmas Day - Peter Zizzo, Ric Wake, Celine Dion

Listen here:

11. Another Year Has Gone By - Bryan Adams and Eliot Kennedy

12. Maybe This Christmas - Ron Sexsmith

13. Christmas Stays The Same - Frank Wildhorn and Jack Murphy
