With the holidays in full swing, everyone needs a soundtrack. What are your all-time favorite Christmas songs?

Lenore Battle, Washington, D.C.
“The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole! Chestnuts roasting on an open fire … a true classic.

Zion Flippin, Washington, D.C.
Mariah Carey’s “Joy to the World (Live at The Cathedral of St. John The Divine)” and “O Holy Night.” Home run … she knocked it out the park!

Roosevelt Robinson, Augusta, Ga.
I personally love the various artists that remade “Hallelujah” with Quincy Jones! To me, it’s not Christmas until you hear this song!

Dominique Cola, Washington, D.C.
“Silent Night” by The Temptations is a good one every year.

Brenda Lowe, Kansas City, Mo.
Can’t forget James Brown with “Santa Go Straight to the Ghetto” and Otis Redding with “Merry Christmas Baby.”
