Earlier this year, ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) released its list of the most “performed” Christmas songs of the decade. The winner was the Eurythmics version of “Winter Wonderland”.
As for my favourite Christmas song, it’s hard to decide. I’d probably say that the best song (regardless of which artist is performing) is “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”. As for the best version, it’s a toss–up between the Aselin Debison version of “The Gift” and the Natalie Merchant version of “Children, Go Where I Send Thee”.
