Top 10 Best Christmas Songs for 2009

We’ve been listening to Christmas music in our house and in the car pretty much every day this month.
We’re listening mostly to WALK 97.5 FM out of Long Island, N.Y., as well as some favorite CDs. Last year, when we lived in Chicago, we listened to WLIT 93.9 FM.
A big difference between the two radio stations is that WALK plays “A New York Christmas” (2003) by Rob Thomas and the Chicago station wouldn’t dare.
Anyway, here is my list of the top 10 best Christmas songs for 2009. Half of the tunes are from movies or TV shows.
I decided not to pick any songs I selected for last year’s top 20 best Christmas songs list, all of which I still love. So the 2009 list is all new.

1. “Happy Holidays/It’s the Holiday Season (Medley)” (1953) by Andy Williams
2. “Believe” (2004) by Josh Groban from the soundtrack of “The Polar Express”
3. “(There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays” (1959) by Perry Como
4. “Sleigh Ride” (1959) by Leroy Anderson
5. “Somewhere in My Memory” (1990) vocal version by John Williams from the “Home Alone” soundtrack
6. “Carol of the Bells” (1990) by John Williams from the “Home Alone” soundtrack
7. “Jingle Bells” (1943) by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters
8. “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” (2006) by Sarah McLachlan
9. “Christmas Is Coming” (1965) by the Vince Guaraldi Trio from “A Charlie Brown Christmas”
10. “O Tannenbaum” (1965) by the Vince Guaraldi Trio from “A Charlie Brown Christmas”
