"Fairytale of New York" again. Hands down. The No Use For a Name cover is also great.

What gets me into the Holiday is "Holly Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee.

Makes me want to spend some money.

Then don't go by K-Mart 'cause you'll lose all your dough. Thanks to working there over a few winters, that's all that comes to mind when I hear those songs.

My Favorite Christmas music, pretty much in order:
John Denver and the Muppets <- CLASSIC
Kenny Rogers Christmas
"Happy Christmas" - the "Christian Alternative" Christmas Album.
Michael W. Smith Christmas Album
Oakridge Brothers Christmas Album
Michael Card Christmas Album
Statler Brothers Christmas Album
Back to Back Survivor

The first Christmas CD went in this morning and the little dunks and I cranked Tom Scott's version of "Feliz Navidad" while driving to school - awesome

I have to have obscure Christmas CD's and the best Christmas CD I have by far is Creole Christmas ( - as you can see, it is almost impossible to find nowadays.

I would have to say that for full Christmas album, it has to be Bing Crosby. I have a double-CD that is the best for all-around Christmas music.

In terms of single songs, there are a few:

Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie

The First Noel by Nat King Cole

Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano

We Three Kings by Mario Lanza

In terms of raising the Christmas spirit no matter where I am, the following songs work, usually no matter who is singing them:

Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer
Frosty The Snowman
Santa Claus is Coming to Town

As young as
he feels

We currently very much enjoy the Brian Setzer Orchestra and all their Christmas shenanigans. It's Christmasy, but it's rocking!

Almost A Full Moon (The W at Amazon) by Hawksley Workman. Not particularly traditional (except for Silent Night), but wonderful and heartwarming and a bit weird. Songs about family and food and snow and some fine quality paper.

Low's Xmas album is awesome and should be a holiday standard for years to come.

"First Noel" - Emmylou Harris
"Last Christmas" - Jimmy Eat World
"Sweet Secret Peace" - Neil Finn
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" - BNL & Sarah McLachlan
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas" - Judy Garland
"Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)" - TransSiberian Orchestra
"Christmas at Ground Zero" - Weird Al

edit: Good god how did I forget "Fairytale of New York", the best Xmas song ever ever ever? I will say, while of course the Pogues are the version to keep, there's a very good version by Andy Lang and Karine Polwart on a compilation called "Cold Blow these Winter Winds" which does good justice to the original.

I've grown tired of that through the years, but their performance of "Merry Christmas Baby" on Late Night with Conan three years back was fantastic.

Glad somebody brought up Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Wizards of Wonderland is one I hadn't heard before this:

But it's become a favorite now, along with Christmas Eve.

Enjoy the light show by the way....

For me, it begins and ends with "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. The moment Bowie starts harmonizing the "Peace on Earth" lyrics may be the most beautiful moment in any song ever.

I've long been of the belief that they need to rerecord this track with Bowie singing the Bing Crosby part and someone very much of the newer generation taking his. (Andre 3000 perhaps? Someone who's just as big of a leap from David Bowie as Bowie was from Bing Crosby).

I've got to change my answer to this, based on two VERY different songs I've heard in the past few days.

"Last Christmas" by Wham!
