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

    I just found out that Greensleeves was a woman :confused:

    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 :eek:), and then Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses. And then Last Christmas by Wham.

    So much good stuff.

    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.
