The official CAA post a carol thread!

Postby rocklobster » Sat Nov 27, 2010 5:51 am

OK, since Black Friday has come and gone, it's time to celebrate Christmas! Every year, I ask people to post Christmas music, so here we go again. However, for newbies, here are some rules:
1. Although you can post the same song as someone else, make sure you post a different version.
2. Either secular or religious songs can be used.
3. Do not post the same video as someone else.
With that said, I'll start with this one. This is Sarah Mclachlan performing her version of John Lennon's classic "Happy Christmas (War is Over)"

This song always makes me a little sad.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you. I appointed you to be a prophet of all nations."
--Jeremiah 1:5

Christmas In Our Hearts by Jose Mari Chan
Whatever the season in life, the RIGHT attitude makes all the difference.

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth."
Psalm 121:1-2

"Though our paths may have diverged, you must continue to live out your life with all your might; you must never consider your own life to be something insignificant, and you must never forget about the friends whom you loved for as long as you live."
The Third Rule of Fairy Tail


"Mistakes are not shackles that halt one from stepping forward. Rather, they are that which sustain and grow one's heart.
Mavis Vermilion, Fairy Tail

Vanessa Williams' Go Tell it on the Mountain/Mary Had a Baby has been my all-time favorite Christmas song since I was a child. No song has ever outdone it, although I love finding different versions of O Come, O Come Emmanuel. :)

"While You Were Sleeping"--Casting Crowns
This song actually has something to do with Rapture theology, but it was inspired by "O Little Town of Bethlehem." While I don't support the Rapture because Catholics like myself don't believe it (let's not delve into that, shall we?), this song still speaks to me. I think the point of it is that we will all have to face God, whether at the end of our lives or the world itself. We have to ready whenever it is.

I first heard this song about five years ago or so (or whenever it first played on the radio) and fell in love with it so much that it's not Christmas without it. (Sorry Davidizer13)

This carol has quickly gone from one I never sung to one of my favorites, and this version is my favorite too (bit tinny, unfortunately):

"O Holy Night" by Vic Mignogna
You can find out things about the past that you never knew. And from what you've learned, you may see some things differently in the present. You're the one that changes. Not the past.
- Ellone, Final Fantasy VIII

"There's a difference between maliciously offending somebody - on purpose - and somebody being offended by...truth. If you're offended by the truth, that's your problem. I have no obligation to not offend you if I'm speaking the truth. The truth is supposed to offend you; that's how you know you don't got it."

12 Days of Christmas by Relient K, likely my favourite rendition of this song.

This has turned into one of my favorite Christmas songs, one that I've never heard in English. (You know you love a song like this when you can spell it immediately without having to look it up! XD) Chloe Agnew - the girl on the right, wearing pink - has, if you ask me, the most beautiful voice in the world.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Having just recently finished watching the movie The Christmas Shoes, take a listen:

"The Christmas Shoes" by NewSong

I've also grown very fond of this song lately:
"Bethlehem" by Theocracy
