The best Christmas song ever.

Thought this one was pretty funny.

I like "The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole.

Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses is probably my favorite "rock" Christmas song.

Definitely one of mine, too; an authentically bittersweet song - and a very welcome antidote to some of the more saccharine offerings one comes across this time of year.

Might still have it around, but I somehow doubt it.

I heard this rock-swing version of Jingle Bells back in the early nineties, it was awesome, a real up-tempo song. It was called Swinging Bells or Swingle Bells or something like that. I've searched high and low for it, and although there are numerous songs by that name floating around, I haven't been able to locate that particular song; it was a really fast version. If any of you know or remember that song, I would love you to tell me the exact title and artist.

Brian Setzer did something similar. Check it out here.

He also has an instrumental version. In fact, that entire "Merry Axemas" album is wonderful. I love it, and I usually can't stand Christmas music.
