Xmas Songs wishList that Cass could of sung

Postby CassFanForLife » Wed Dec 07, 2011 11:53 am

With Xmas season going on now....if you had a Cass Xmas Song wishlist that Cass could of sung solo or duet, or with M & P's...what are your choices ? My choices for the time being would be :

" I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas ( with Bing preferably )"
" I'll Be Home Home For Christmas "
" Winter Wonderland"
" Merry Christmas To You "
" O Holy Night ".....many more....

Well, most of the standards really, they would of suited her voice...

As for more recent songs...
whatever tempo to have suited her voice

" Started With A Child"
" All I Want For Xmas Is You "
and more....

Hi cassfan,
Here's my list:
Silent Night
I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day (I'm not sure if this is the title, but I know Harry Belafonte sings it)
O Holy Night
What Child is This
The Twelve Days of Christmas
The Holly and the Ivy (I'm not sure if this is the title either, but I know Natalie Cole sings it)
Joy to The World

The only duet partner I can think of right now is Karen Carpenter. If I think of more, I'll post.
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

Hi all, this is a great topic. Here are the christmas songs I would have loved to hear Cass sing.

A Winters Tale - David Essex
Driving home for Christmas - Chris Rea
Chestnuts roasting (Christmas Song) - Nat King Cole
All I want for Christmas is you - Mariah Carey
Rockin' around the Christmas tree - Brenda Lee

Duets maybe with

Karen Carpenter (of course)
John Denver (I know this was done)
Jeff Lynne (of ELO & Traveling Wilbury's)
The Muppets (would have been amazing)
Michael Jackson (Probably the best duet ever)

Merry Christmas to you all x

I agree with all of you on your selections. My fantasy Cass Christmas single would be

Rocking Around The Christmas Tree/Jingle Bell Rock

enjoy the season
Peace & Love,
Frankie :geek:

PS A few days ago I went to the record store & found a copy of Don't Call Me Mama Anymore
It's in perfect condition, & I'm loving every groove of it

Hi everyone,
Just want to add to my list of Christmas songs Cass could've sung:
Mary, Did You Know
Mary's Boy Child (This one is by Harry Belafonte, I think he would've made a great duet partner with Cass)
Virgin Mary (As you know, this was done by The Journeymen. It would've been cool if Cass, Scott Mckenzie and Denny sang it)
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

My wish would be Cass sing "The First Noel" in a duet with Neil Diamond. Cheers Peter

More than just Cass, I wish the Mamas & Papas would have lasted long enough to do a Christmas album. I bet it would have been a lasting standard classic. Can you imagine how John would have reworked and arranged those old songs, and a few originals he could have wrote.

I think Michelle once mentioned her regrets that they didn't do a Christmas album.
