Ya gotta love it. Went to see my mom today, who is in the hospital at the moment. As I leaned over to straighten the covers, or plant a kiss on her cheek or something, Karen Carpenter's sweet voice came over her hospital call system, and began singing that familiar intro - "...Christmas Cards have all been sent..." You know the rest.
I turned up the volume, and put the speaker right up to mom's ear. She began to smile (she was pretty out of it), and she said - "You always did love the way she sang, didn't you?" It was a touching moment, for certain. And mom enjoyed hearing Karen sing Merry Christmas Darling, too as she smiled the whole time Karen was singing.
So chalk one up for MCD today....it was the radio playing over the hospital's intercom system. Nice....
That was a sweet story you told, Tim. I hope your mother isn't suffering. I will keep her in my prayers.
:angelpr ayer: This thread is superb....I generally don't have the radio on unless I'm in the car. But I will start listening more. I say that Merry Ch. Darling will come in as most played, and Home for the Holidays. Best of God's blessings for your mom Tim......

As of approximately 1430 Pacific time on Dec. 7: Merry Christmas Darling- 86, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- 39, Christmas Song- 31, Home For The Holidays- 20, Sleigh Ride- 15, Do You Hear- 9, Christmas Waltz- 7, I'll Be Home For Christmas- 4, White Christmas- 2, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town-2, Carol Of The Bells-2.
Thinking ahead: when should the log end? A day or so before Christmas so that the final tally is ready for everyone on Christmas, or on/just after Christmas, so as to include as many hears as possible? Whatever the majority thinks is best will be the rule.
