Can anyone please help create a list of songs from Winter Holiday Musicals?
All religious denominations included. List the obvious ones too...
Trying to compile a suggestions list for a variety show with a Winter holiday theme.

Looking for specific song titles and the musical they are from.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

:)

My favorite:

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS

Something different for a strong female:

"Surabaya-Santa" from SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD

(The same show has a song called "Christmas Lullaby", which honestly I can't remember.)

The whole second act of Caroline or Change, mainly "The Chanukah Party"

There is a Santa Clause- Elf

Also, have you considered checking out some of the original songs that on the "Broadway Carols for a Cure" CDs? They would be a great source of material as well.

ALthough not strictly Christmas songs Toyland and March of the Toys (from BABES IN TOYLAND) do get a fair amount of play in the Holiday season.

Also...

It's Christmastime (SONG OF NORWAY)
Yuletide Park Avenue (CALL ME MISTER)
Lovers on Christmas Eve (I LOVE MY WIFE)
Be a Santa (SUBWAYS ARE FOR SLEEPING)


Cast albums are NOT "soundtracks."
Live theatre does not use a "soundtrack." If it did, it wouldn't be live theatre!

I host a weekly one-hour radio program featuring cast album selections as well as songs by cabaret, jazz and theatre artists. The program, FRONT ROW CENTRE is heard Sundays 9 to 10 am and also Saturdays from 8 to 9 am (eastern times) on www.proudfm.com

"Do-Re-Mi" from Sound of Music...yes it's technically not a Christmas song in the musical, but that doesn't stop it from constantly being played during Christmas season

Are you sure, f13overture? I know "My Favorite Things" has become a Christmas staple, but I've never heard "Do-Re-Mi" during the holidays.

I would love to know how in the world "My Favorite Things" became a Christmas song. Just because it mentions snow and packages? It is a great song-but I'm certain Rodgers and Hammerstein never meant for it to be a Christmas song.

Now, to answer the question-does New Years count?

If so-"This Time Next Year" from "Sunset Boulevard" and "The Perfect Year" from "Sunset Boulevard"

The Varese Sarabande "A Broadway Christmas" is pretty comprehensive with some great performances. I highly recommend it:
