First of all - wow! That whole holiday season flew by!

During the 41 days that we played Christmas music, there were a few songs that got more plays than others (not all Christmas songs are created equal and there are definitely as many good versions as bad versions of each Christmas song). The list below is the most played version of a song and how many times it played - not necessarily the most played song title.

#1 - Here Comes Santa Claus - Gene Autry. 97 plays.

#2 A Holly Jolly Christmas - Burl Ives. 92 plays.

#3 It Came Upon A Midnight Clear - Burl Ives. 92 plays.

#4 I'll Be Home For Christmas - Perry Como. 91 plays.

#5 Happy Holiday - Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme. 89 plays.

  • #6 It's Christmas Time - Carpenters 89 plays
  • #7 It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas - Johnny Mathis 87 plays
  • #8 The Twelve Days Of Christmas - Ray Conniff 86 plays
  • #9 Let It Snow - Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme 86 plays
  • #10 It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year - Andy Williams 85 plays
  • #11 Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid 85 plays
  • #12 Winter Wonderland - Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme 85 plays
  • #13 Caroling, Caroling - Nat King Cole 84 plays
  • #14 White Christmas - Dean Martin 84 plays

Song number 15 was Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer by Gene Autry and since it wouldn't be fair to leave Frosty off the list he came in 19th place with the Ray Conniff version playing 80 times.

Also, everyone's favorite song to hate and cry to, The Christmas Shoes by NewSong played 49 times.
