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


Also there's this one. NSFW

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

I just found out that Greensleeves was a woman

I wonder how it got to be associated with Christmas!

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.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, by Gene Autry, on a 6" 78RPM wax record.

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

Fairytale of New York by The Pogues, followed by Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade (and I like Noel Gallagher's version of it ), and then Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses. And then Last Christmas by Wham.

So much good stuff.

To ToomeyND: Take the word youtube and put it in square brackets, like this but without the spaces:
[ youtube ]
Then place the "v=" code -- the code that comes after the v= in the URL on most YouTube videos, followed by another bracketed youtube but with a slash before it.
Here's what your code would look like (imagine it without the spaces, of course):
[ youtube ] HGVNzgUxE-g [ /youtube]

And here's the result:

A couple of others I enjoy: "The 12 Pains Of Christmas" by Bob Rivers, and Mannheim Steamroller's renditions of "Deck The Halls" and "Joy To The World." Love that Prophet 5 sound.
