So many favourites. The Pogues Fairytale of New York, The Kinks Father Christmas, Dread Zeppelin has a nice cover of All I Want for Christmas is my 2 Front Teeth on their Christmas album.

I'm sure there are covers or alt versions I like that I can't think of right now... but this may be my favorite one:

I'm pretty much a classics guy. Burl, Perry, Andy, Gene, Johnny Mathis, Bing, Eddie Arnold, Nat King Cole, etc. Barenaked Ladies does have a good song in God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen I think for the more traditional Christmas folks. and for others, Walking Round in Women's Underwear by Bob Rivers is pretty good too.

I know this song has become controversial, but my memories of my gradnma singing a few bars of this when we were bundling up to go outside as kids brings a smile to my face.

I'm aware of the controversial aspect of the "Baby it's cold outside" song... I thought that the kids version of the song that I posted would redirect the focus to the "cute".

Although, the Christmas season actually starts with the same note for me. First music I'll put on December 1, and will play it over and over all month.

Love the classics also. Every year, driving to/from Tahoe during this season, we have Casey Kasem's Xmas Favorites CD's (yes, I still use CDs) playing ...

Here's a teaser for the 2 CD set....
