Legal Insurrection has posted some awesome Christmas videos over the years, and this is a great time to revisit them . . . and add a few.
Music is such an integral part of the human experience, and our memories are so often connected directly to a particular tune or lyric. A song can whisk us back in time, warm our heart, and boost our spirits. Christmas songs, it seems to me, are among the more powerful examples of this phenomenon.
First up, from Mike’s VIDEO: Hillsdale College Choir Sings ‘O Holy Night’:
It is indeed sublime.
Next up, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” from Mall Ditches Santa’s Christmas Village, Hides Him in Glacier Display:
While we’re revisiting childhood Christmas memories, we can’t skip the Heat Miser song from the Christmas classic The Year Without a Santa Claus. It’s one of my faves:
Ultimately, though, a lot of people like to enjoy Christmas music that is not for children only. In her 2014 Christmas post, “Who Spiked the Eggnog?” or, “A Legal Insurrection Christmas Sing-a-Long!”, Amy posted some great Christmas videos.
Remember when the anti-joy PC police came after “Baby It’s Cold Outside” as a “date rape song”? So ludicrous.
Anyway, among the comments on Amy’s post, LI reader snopercod suggested inclusion of the Carpenters’ “Merry Christmas, Darling.” It’s truly gorgeous, so here it is:
Another song suggested in that thread resonates for me because I live in the “Redneck Riveria” part of Florida, also known as LA (as in “Lower Alabama”).
Mike is particularly fond of The Ultimate Christmas Flash Mob Video!. And with good reason.
I’ve heard a zillion renditions of “White Christmas,” but none comes close to Bing Crosby’s:
My all-time favorite Christmas song, however, has to be Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas.”
