Canzoni_più_belle_di_Natale

Pochi giorni fa, vi abbiamo dato l'elenco di tutte le canzoni natalizie uscite in America dagli anni '40 fino ad oggi.

Numerosi i titoli per brani che, a volte, non avevamo mai sentito e per altri che, invece ancora oggi, sono tra i più trasmessi in radio nel periodo delle feste (All I want for Christmas is you vi dice qualcosa?). Ovviamente, non basta semplicemente intonare qualche brano dal sapore festivo o con la parola "natale" per far diventare il pezzo un successo internazionale.

Si sa che alcuni brani (e interpretazioni) sono facilmente dimenticabili. Oggi, vogliamo riportarvi la top ten delle canzoni natalizie secondo il sito Examiner. Troverete canzoni classiche e altre meno tradizionali, rilette ed originali. Scopritele dopo il salto. Quali salvate? Siete d'accordo con quello che avete letto?

10. Backstreet Boys, It's Christmas Time Again

    Frost grows outside the window
    First kiss under the mistletoe
    Oh oh, oh oh
    Bells chime inside a steeple
    Open the doors see the people sing
    Oh oh, oh oh

    And when the snow is falling down, down, down
    You’ll know that Santa’s back in town, town, town
    That’s when it’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again

    I’ve been checkin’ my list twice
    Got plans to give you your gift tonight
    Oh oh, oh oh
    Wake up under a lit tree
    One wish that came true, you’re here with me
    Oh oh, oh oh

    And when the snow is falling down, down, down
    You’ll know that Santa’s back in town, town, town
    That’s when it’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again

    And when the snow is falling down, down, down
    You’ll know that Santa’s back in town, town, town
    That’s when it’s Christmas time again (Yeahhhh)
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta, (I gave you, I gave you my heart)
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta, (I’ve been bad. I’ve been good. I’ve been everything I should)
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    It’s Christmas time again
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta,
    La ta, la ta ta ta ta, (I’ve been bad. I’ve been good. And you know that I do what I should)
    It’s Christmas time again

09. Madonna, Santa Baby

    Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
    I've been an awful good girl
    Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa baby, an out-of-space convertible too, light blue
    I'll wait up for you dear
    Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Think of all the fun I've missed
    Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
    Next year I could be oh so good
    If you'd check off my Christmas list
    Boo doo bee doo

    Santa honey, I wanna yacht and really that's
    Not a lot
    I've been an angel all year
    Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa cutie, there's one thing I really do need, the deed
    To a platinum mine
    Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa baby, I'm filling my stocking with a duplex, and checks
    Sign your 'X' on the line
    Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Come and trim my Christmas tree
    With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
    I really do believe in you
    Let's see if you believe in me
    Boo doo bee doo

    Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
    I don't mean a phone
    Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Hurry down the chimney tonight
    Hurry down the chimney tonight

08. She & Him, Sleigh Ride

    Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
    Ring ting tingling too
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Outside the snow is falling
    And friends are calling "yoo hoo",
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you.
    Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap,
    Let's go, let's look at the show,
    We're riding in a wonderland of snow.
    Giddy yap, giddy yap, gidd yap,
    It's grand, just holding your hand,
    We're gliding along with a song
    Of a wintry fairy land

    Our cheeks are nice and rosy
    And comfy cozy are we
    We're snuggled up together
    Like two birds of a feather would be
    Let's take that road before us
    And sing a chorus or two
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you.

    There's a birthday party
    At the home of Farmer Gray
    It'll be the perfect ending to a perfect day
    We'll be singing the songs
    We love to sing without a single stop
    At the fireplace while we watch
    The chestnuts pop.

    There's a happy feeling
    Nothing in the world can buy
    When they pass around the coffe and the pumpkin pie
    It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Iives
    These wonderful things are the things
    We remember all through our lives!

    Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
    Ring ting tingling too
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Outside the snow is falling
    And friends are calling "yoo hoo",
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you.
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you

07. The Beach Boys, Little Saint Nick

    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick
    Christmas comes this time each year
    Oooooooo oooooooo

    Well, way up north where the air gets cold
    There's a tale about Christmas that you've all been told
    And a real famous cat all dressed up in red
    And he spends the whole year workin' out on his sled

    It's the little Saint Nick
    Ooooo, little Saint Nick
    It's the little Saint Nick
    Ooooo, little Saint Nick

    Just a little bobsled we call it old Saint Nick
    But she'll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick
    She's candy-apple red with a ski for a wheel
    And when Santa hits the gas, man, just watch her peel

    It's the little Saint Nick
    Ooooo, little Saint Nick
    It's the little Saint Nick
    Ooooo, little Saint Nick

    Run run reindeer
    Run run reindeer
    Whoaa
    Run run reindeer
    Run run reindeer

    He don't miss no one

    And haulin' through the snow at a frightenin' speed
    With a half a dozen deer with Rudy to lead
    He's gotta wear his goggles 'cause the snow really flies
    And he's cruisin' every pad with a little surprise

    It's the little Saint Nick
    Ooooo, little Saint Nick
    It's the little Saint Nick
    Ooooo, little Saint Nick

    Ahhhhhh
    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick
    Christmas comes this time each year

    Ahhhhhh
    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick
    Christmas comes this time each year

    Ahhhhhh
    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick
    Christmas comes this time each year

06. Britney Spears, My Only Wish (This Year)

    Ooh yeah
    Last night I took a walk in the snow
    Couples holding hands, places to go
    Seems like everyone but me is in love
    Santa, can you hear me ?

    I sign my letter that I sealed with a kiss
    I send it off and just said this
    I know exactly what I want this year
    Santa, can you hear me ?

    I want my baby, baby
    I want someone to love me someone to hold
    Maybe, Maybe
    He'll be all my own in a big red bow
    Santa, can you hear me ?
    I have been so good this year
    And all I want is one thing
    Tell me my true love is here

    with Something special for me in your sleigh.
    Ooh please make my wish come true
    Santa, can you hear me ?

    I want my baby, baby
    I want someone to love me someone to hold
    Maybe, Maybe

05. The Waitresses, Christmas Wrapping

    "Bah, humbug!" No, that's too strong
    'Cause it is my favorite holiday
    But all this year's been a busy blur
    Don't think I have the energy

    To add to my already mad rush
    Just 'cause it's 'tis the season.
    The perfect gift for me would be
    Completions and connections left from

    Last year, ski shop,
    Encounter, most interesting.
    Had his number but never the time
    Most of '81 passed along those lines.

    So deck those halls, trim those trees
    Raise up cups of Christmas cheer,
    I just need to catch my breath,
    Christmas by myself this year.

    Calendar picture, frozen landscape,
    Chilled this room for twenty-four days,
    Evergreens, sparkling snow
    Get this winter over with!

    Flashback to springtime, saw him again,
    Would've been good to go for lunch,
    Couldn't agree when we were both free,
    We tried, we said we'd keep in touch.

    Didn't, of course, 'til summertime,
    Out to the beach to his boat could I join him?
    No, this time it was me,
    Sunburn in the third degree.

    Now the calendar's just one page
    And, of course, I am excited
    Tonight's the night, but I've set my mind
    Not to do too much about it.

    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    But I think I'll miss this one this year.
    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    But I think I'll miss this one this year.
    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    But I think I'll miss this one this year.
    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    But I think I'll miss this one this year.
    Hardly dashing through the snow
    Cause I bundled up too tight
    Last minute have-to-do's
    A few cards a few calls
    'Cause it's r-s-v-p
    No thanks, no party lights
    It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax
    Turned down all of my invites.

    Last fall I had a night to myself,
    Same guy called, halloween party,
    Waited all night for him to show,
    This time his car wouldn't go,

    Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late,
    Trudge on home to celebrate
    In a quiet way, unwind
    Doing Christmas right this time.

    A&P has provided me
    With the world's smallest turkey
    Already in the oven, nice and hot
    Oh damn! Guess what I forgot?

    So on with the boots, back out in the snow
    To the only all-night grocery,
    When what to my wondering eyes should appear
    In the line is that guy I've been chasing all year!

    "I'm spending this one alone," he said.
    "Need a break; this year's been crazy."
    I said, "Me too, but why are you?
    You mean you forgot cranberries too?"

    Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
    Caught on to what was happening
    That Christmas magic's brought this tale
    To a very happy ending! "

    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    Couldn't miss this one this year!
    Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
    Couldn't miss this one this year!

04. Darlene Love, Christmas (Baby please come home)

    The snow's coming down
    I'm watching it fall
    Lots of people around
    Baby please come home

    The church bells in town
    All singing in song
    Full of happy sounds
    Baby please come home

    They're singing "Deck The Halls"
    But it's not like Christmas at all
    'Cause I remember when you were here
    And all the fun we had last year

    Pretty lights on the tree
    I'm watching them shine
    You should be here with me
    Baby please come home

    They're singing "Deck The Halls"
    But it's not like Christmas at all
    'Cause I remember when you were here
    And all the fun we had last year

    If there was a way
    I'd hold back this tear
    But it's Christmas day
    Please
    Please
    Please
    Please
    Baby please come home

03. Wham! - Last Christmas

    [Chorus:]
    Last Christmas
    I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year
    To save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special

    Once bitten and twice shy
    I keep my distance
    But you still catch my eye
    Tell me baby
    Do you recognize me?
    Well
    It's been a year
    It doesn't surprise me
    I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying "I love you"
    I meant it
    Now I know what a fool I've been
    But if you kissed me now
    I know you'd fool me again

    [Chorus0]

    A crowded room
    Friends with tired eyes
    I'm hiding from you
    And your soul of ice
    My god I thought you were
    Someone to rely on
    Me?
    I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
    A man under cover but you tore me apart
    Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

    [Chorus 2x]

    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
    A man under cover buy you tore him apart
    Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
    I'll give it to someone special.

02. John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

    [Chorus:]
    Last Christmas
    I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year
    To save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special

    Once bitten and twice shy
    I keep my distance
    But you still catch my eye
    Tell me baby
    Do you recognize me?
    Well
    It's been a year
    It doesn't surprise me
    I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying "I love you"
    I meant it
    Now I know what a fool I've been
    But if you kissed me now
    I know you'd fool me again

    [Chorus0]

    A crowded room
    Friends with tired eyes
    I'm hiding from you
    And your soul of ice
    My god I thought you were
    Someone to rely on
    Me?
    I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
    A man under cover but you tore me apart
    Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

    [Chorus 2x]

    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
    A man under cover buy you tore him apart
    Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
    I'll give it to someone special.

01. Mariah Carey, All I want for Christmas is You

    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing I need
    I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree

    I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    All I want for Christmas
    Is you

    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing I need
    And I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree

    I don't need to hang my stocking
    There upon the fireplace
    Santa Claus won't make me happy
    With a toy on Christmas Day

    I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    All I want for Christmas is you
    You baby

    Oh I won't ask for much this Christmas
    I won't even wish for snow
    And I'm just gonna keep on waiting
    Underneath the mistletoe

    I won't make a list and send it
    To the North Pole for Saint Nick
    I won't even stay awake to
    Hear those magic reindeer click

    'Cause I just want you here tonight
    Holding on to me so tight
    What more can I do?
    Baby all I want for Christmas is you
    You

    Oh all the lights are shining
    So brightly everywhere
    And the sound of children's
    Laughter fills the air

    And everyone is singing
    I hear those sleigh bells ringing
    Santa won't you bring me the one I really need?
    Won't you please bring my baby to me?

    Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
    This is all I'm asking for
    I just want to see my baby
    Standing right outside my door

    Oh I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    Baby all I want for Christmas is
    You baby

    All I want for Christmas is you baby
    All I want for Christmas is you baby
    All I want for Christmas is you baby
