I had no idea it was associated with Christmas!

Boring as sin but my fave is Slade's christmas ditty.

Ah, Christmas! Each year, listening to Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" backwards while sipping on hot apple cider cures all my maladies and miseries.

I was afraid someone might nominate that.

That's a horrible song.

First, it has nothing to do with Christmas. It obfuscates and trivializes the meaning of the holiday.

But mostly, it sends a really twisted message: someone different gets pointed-at and ridiculed until through some fluke they find favor with Authority, and "then all the reindeer loved him."

Pure evil, that song. Think about it.

Don't have a single favorite. But I do like Winter Wonder Land, I'll be home for Christmas, and Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer... among others.

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.
