Poll: Holiday Music

Hanukkah has begun and Christmas is just a few days away. How do you feel about holiday music? Tell us -- and then weigh in with your favorite and/or least favorite holiday tune.


ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) has just released its list of most-played songs of the holiday season.

For the second year in a row, "Sleigh Ride" tops the list of songs played the most between October 1 and December 14 of this year.

Some radio stations and retail outlets start playing wall-to-wall holiday music before Thanksgiving.

Absolutely love Christmas music. For those that have the ability to stream music, http://www.classicholidayradio.com/ is incredible. Very few commercials, and they play a great rotation of music - most of which I hadn't heard since loading up my parents' record-changer in the late '60s - early '70s.

Makes me tink of the Twelve Days of Christmas song.. I guess the words were so offensive to the other religions that they pulled a hack job on it over in Second Hill Lane. Before I changed the lerics I would take the time to make sure there weren't any religious meanings to a song. How about you just drop the program from your program in full instead of changing the words to it.

Before moving to Milford, my next door neighbor was Morton Gould a man famous in the music field not only as a composer and conductor but as a recipient of the Kennedy Honors, but as President of ASCAP. I like my new neighbors, but I can't say they enjoy the same fame.

I love all the classic songs by Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, etc. But my all time favorite has got to be the Carpenters' "Merry Christmas Darling"
