I’ve always been a big fan of lists, so I’ve updated my top 25 favorite Christmas songs.  It’s pretty much the same as what I posted on Facebook last year, but the Pogues moved up, and Band Aid took the #1 spot again.  So without further ado, here’s the list.  Let me know if you agree (none of you will), and what you feel should be there and what shouldn’t.  And stay tuned for a post I can only call “Christmas Presents For The Enemies Of Public Education In Delaware”.  Feel free to leave input on that one as well!

    • What’s wrong with a bunch of coked-up Brits with crazy hair in the middle of the 1980’s singing a song to help famine in Africa at Christmastime? At least that money went to something worthy, unlike our Race To The Top funds….

  1. It’s Christmas time, and there’s no need to be afraid
    At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade
    And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy
    Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time

    But say a prayer to pray for the other ones
    At Christmas time, it’s hard, but when you’re having fun
    There’s a world outside your window
    And it’s a world of dread and fear
    Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
    And the Christmas bells that ring there
    Are the clanging chimes of doom
    Well, tonight, thank God it’s them instead of you

    And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas time
    The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
    Where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
    Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

    Here’s to you, raise a glass for everyone
    Here’s to them underneath that burning sun
    Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

    Feed the world
    Feed the world

    Feed the world; let them know it’s Christmas time
    And feed the world; let them know it’s Christmas time
    And feed the world; let them know it’s Christmas time
    And feed the world; let them know it’s Christmas time
