"One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong...."

So we noticed this the other day when on 101.5 the River’s website. We were looking at the Top 20 most requested songs and notice one that seemed like it didn’t belong.

“One of these things is not like the other, one of these things doesn’t belong. Can you guess which thing is not like the other, before I finish this song?”

1 Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Christina Aguilera featuring Brian McKnight
2 When My Heart Finds Christmas - Harry Connick Jr.
3 O Holy Night - Mariah Carey
4 Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Kenny G
5 New Years Day - U2
6 Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - Sarah McLachlan
7 Last Christmas - Wham!
8 White Christmas - Tony Bennett
9 Please Come Home For Christmas - Aaron Neville
10 Christmas Time - Christina Aguilera
11 Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley
12 Silent Night - Gloria Estefan
13 All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey
14 Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Vince Gill
15 I Will Be Home For Christmas - Kristin Chenoweth
16 O Little Town Of Bethlehem - Sarah McLachlan
17 Christmas Canon - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
18 Why Couldnt It Be Christmas Everyday? - Bianca Ryan
19 White Christmas - Michael Bolton
20 Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt

I know many may have gone with “Last Christmas” by Wham, but no the answer I was looking for is “New Year’s Day” by U2. I mean really?! Now I am not sure if this is being requested throughout the year so much that it is STILL on the list or if people are actually requesting the song because they think it is a holiday type song. I really hope it is the first, because this is not a Christmas song at all! As Terry said, “This has no relevance to the Holiday season, it is nothing more then just a kick ass rock song.”

What are your favorite Christmas songs this year? (mine in the comments)


  1. Love White Christmas sung by Bing Crosby. Also love anything from the Charlie Brown Christmas CD. I also really like the Love Actually soundtrack…there are some great Christmas songs on there.

    Christmas Canon by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is great and any Christmas song sung by The Carpenters, Josh Groban or Michael Buble.

  2. I'm always excited to hear the Barenaked Ladies/Sarah McLachlan version of 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen', Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas is You' and Gayla Peevey's 'I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas'.
