    Simple, list the 5 Christmas songs/carols that you can hear over and over and over and still can't wait to hear them every year. If it's a particular version name the artist(s). No explanations, apologies or justifications are needed (or necessary).
    You can also throw in three that you would just as soon never hear again.

    In no particular order:
    Let it Be Christmas... Alan Jackson
    Frosty the Snowman... Leon Redbone
    Let it Snow... Vaughn Monroe
    The Christmas Song...Nat King Cole
    O Holy Night... Kerry Roberts

    The ones that always curdle my eggnog:
    The Twelve Days of Christmas... by anybody
    Good King Wenceslas...not even instrumental
    Little Drummer Boy... even if hummed

    I'm a Christian and I've never really cared for Christmas music (even when I was a kid), but I always liked Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg, Batmobile lost a wheel and the Joker got away. :p

    Trans Siberian Orchestra makes good music. ;)

    This one is my favorite, hands down. The Drifters, White Christmas.


    Silent Night, especially when sung in church Christmas eve is pretty darn special, too.

    Then, a little bit on the silly side works for me also.





    And ya can't forget Ertha Kitt and "Santa Baby".

    I like most all of the "classic" Christmas songs, but I only need to hear Johnny Mathis a couple of times and I'm ready to shoot the radio!

    TSO is pretty much the only "Christmas Music" I like these days. Oh, and some of the (mostly) instrumental "Celtic" stuff too. Unfortunately most of the Christmas music my wife plays sounds like it was recorded by washed up lounge singers.

    I can't find a decent live version of Christmas Eve Sarajevo online, but that would be one of my favorites.

    Hmmm.... Maybe it's that "washed up lounge singer" aspect that has put me off on Christmas music all these years. o_O
