    I currently have playing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. But I’m guessing that isn’t what most people think of when the topic of Christmas songs comes up.Report

    One of the most famous Japanese Christmas songs is Tatsuro Yamashita’s 1983 “Christmas Eve.” In Japan, Christmas is kind of like Valentine’s Day in December, so Christmas songs are mostly just winter-themed love songs. There’s not much to the lyric: It might snow tonight; he’s waiting for a girl, but she probably won’t come and he’ll spend Christmas Eve alone; trees are sparkling with silver. But wait! Plot twist!

    Actually the plot twist is that there’s no real resolution; it just ends with a repetition of the first verse about snowing and waiting. Legend has it that he’s waiting still. It’s kind of a bummer.

    But the night is both silent and holy, so that’s nice.

    Still, nice song, and he has a unique voice.

    Christmas novelty tunes that always come to mind for me are ‘Christmas at Ground Zero’ and ‘Christmas All Over Again.’ As for Christmas music I’ll willingly listen to? It’s a very short list. Mannheim Steamroller & Trans Siberian Orchestra. A side effect of orchestra & band classes in school I’ve since noticed, I don’t Christmas tune that agreeably. :-/Report
