I can never get enough of Sufjan Stevens' Christmas stuff. Great way to blend my more alternative sensibilities with stuff that will still go over well in that more traditional family setting during the Christmas gatherings.

I just found an old list:

Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody
Mud – Lonely this Christmas
Elton John – Ho! Ho! Ho! (Who'd Be A Turkey At Christmas)
Low – Blue Christmas
John Denver – Please Daddy don’t get drunk this Christmas
Brenda Lee – Rockin Around The Christmas Tree
John Lennon / Yoko Ono – Happy Christmas (War is over)
Gilbert O'Sullivan – I am not dreaming of a White Christmas
Chris Hill – Bionic Santa
Wizzard – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday

It’s up to me again to vote for Slade. Amazing, how can there be any doubt. By far the best Christmas song.

What about Fall? No Xmas for John Quays. But mentioning Xmas does not really make this a Christmas song.


And then there is this:


Christmas With The Rat Pack by Various Artists

Have A Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives

If I had to pick my favorite classic Christmas album this would definitely be it though. Great content all the way through and everyone knows it. Brings everyone back to those childhood Christmas days when you were so excited you couldn't sleep.
