    The Bruce Springsteen cover of "Santa Claus is coming to town"

    "....Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanta Claus is comin' to town...."

    OK, perhaps not.

    I confess to liking christmas music in the 4-day span between December 23 and 27.

    How about Feliz Navidad?

    The Pogue Mahones are about as good as it gets.

    Here is a John Denver song "Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas" that is demented in its own way.
    Amazon.com

    And my personal fav is Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas from the Family"

    Here's a playlist that I burned and ended up having to surrender the disc to one of my clients who heard it in my car.

    I have to say I love that song too. It sounds like it could have come right off of the Phil Spector Christmas albums my parents used to play when I was a little kid.

    "Merry X-Mas", by Slade. One of those that I really enjoy hearing.
    "Driving home for Christmas", Chris Rea. Another one.

    And keep your hands off "Feliz Navidad". That one makes me throw things at the radio.

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Entire album is awesome
    Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy - My favorite of the Tchaikovsky compositions for Nutcracker

    Other than that and a select few traditional songs, I think Chrismtas music sucks.

    Xtina Agui did a cover of All I Want For Christmas.

    You should get that song on your CD. Or are you the Anti-Christ(mas)? :tongue:

    Would you put Bohemian Rhapsody on? Not a Christmasy type song I know but it used to get played every year, probably still does. I've been really drunk these past few Xmas's :biggrin1:
