Sorry if this has been done to death. I did check through posts but got bored so didn't go back that far.

What are your favourite Christmas albums? I want to get a new one or three this year.

We have Bing Crosby, Josh Groban and a few compilations.

And the Muppets with John Denver.

Michael Buble all the way for me.I may listen to it too much though as the kids think the first line of Jingle Bells is 'Merry Christmas Ladies,Merry Christmas Mr Buble'

My sister also made me a compilation from iTunes which is also always on in the car once December 1st rolls around!

The Phil Spector Christmas album is great.

Another vote for Michael Buble.
I made a playlist last year with a mixture though.

Another vote for Michael Buble's Christmas album which is the only time I can tolerate his singing

It has lots of classics and I like his style of singing. I only bought it recently and I can already picture myself in the kitchen cooking Christmas dinner while it's playing <loser>

Now That's What I Call Christmas is good too. All the classic 80s/90s songs.

I've just bought the Downton Abbey Christmas CD today. It came with the free autorip version so already listening to it. It has all the classic carols sung by Kings College, Cambridge (with descants which, as an ex-chorister who misses singing greatly, is fantastic!) as well as some instrumental pieces such as The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. It even has Mr Carson reading T'was The Night Before Christmas. I thoroughly recommend it.

Otherwise I echo PPs and say Michael Buble's album is brilliant.

Michael Buble and Phil Spector - both great.
But last year I started compiling a playlist in Deezer - I've got 140 Christmas songs / carols so far grin.
