Please Come Home for Christmas

I love Christmas music, always have. Every year I try to wait until at least Thanksgiving, but every year, I fail and end up adding my “Cool Christmas” playlist to my iPhone before the turkey is even thawed. One of my favorite songs, “Please Come Home for Christmas,” comes in as many versions as there are Kim Kardashian exes.

The version I love best is by the Eagles. It’s the one I grew up hearing every Christmas on my granma’s record player. I know Don Henley’s phrasing like I know my mama’s sweet voice. My second favorite take on this classic is by Jon Bon Jovi, my rock star fantasy. I mean, seriously, have you seen the video? Who wouldn’t want to play Cindy Crawford’s role? I’d even wear that dorky Santa hat if it meant rolling around by the fire with JBJ.

Each year I add a new version to my collection – Willie Nelson has the honor for 2011. Charles Brown also did a great soulful rendition in the ’60s that I like.

The tunes, including the JBJ video, are below, so take a listen and tell me which version you enjoy most.
