Cheer up, Nick, you've only got two more weeks of it!

My favorite is O Holy Night.

The best ever as far as I'm concerned. It combines great lyrics with incredible music.

O' Holy Night is about the only Christmas song I like.

LOL!! I'd forgotten all about Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo. Wonder if that's become an annual Christmas program on Comedy Central?

A good reason to avoid the elevator and take the stairs.

BTW, You have a message

I did not know that. I watched the video on Youtube and it's pretty awesome.

It used to be "O Holy Night" until that time a few years ago when we were driving home from Mom's house while singing it and hit the deer. Now it's "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer".

I left a store yesterday because they were blasting a Mariah Carey Christmas song. Don't know which was worse, the sudden nausea or the splitting headache.

The Glee version of "Baby, it's cold outside."

"Grandma Got Molested at the Airport," via Bob and Tom; or

"The Most Offensive Christmas Song Ever," via South Park. (might have one or two words wrong in this title...just too lazy to look it up right now)

Vince Guaraldi Trio - O Tannenbaum

Bing Crosby - Mele Kalikimaka

Elvis - Blue Christmas

Still Still Still

stille nacht (this one I'm adding as much for the video footage, so much to mention...the earring, the awkward choir director, the stern German-ness of the guy at the end)

Silver Bells -- doesn't matter who sings it

Cait McKnelly 7 years, 6 months ago

"Rebel Jesus" by Jackson Browne Very close runner up, "Fairytale of New York" by Shane McGowan and the Pogues. Kirsty MacColl is the female vocal in the most famous version of it. She passed away several years ago and he's done it subsequently with Cait O'Riordan and some others; it tends to change since Kirsty is gone. I was shocked to find out that Maire Brennan did a version with Ronan Keating; the lyrics have several "naughty words" in them (including the infamous Anglo-Saxon "eff" word so dear to the heart of the Irish) and Maire is a heavy duty Christian.
