    Little Drummer Boy: Harry Simeone Choir

    Winter Wonderland: Johnny Mathis

    There is no other "White Christmas" version besides Bing's, IMHO.
    I don't know.
    I am partial to the Pointer Sisters' "S.C.I.C.T.T."
    I don't know.
    I'll go with Johhny Mathis, too.
    Bing Crosby, once again, has a fabulous voice on "D.Y.H.W.I.H.?"
    I don't know.
    I also like Nat King Cole's "T.C.S.," but the Carpenters did a great one, two.
    I don't know.
    As much as I hate to admit it, Celine Dion's "O.H.N." is very good.

    I'll add a few other songs:
    The 12 Days of Christmas: John Denver & the Muppets
    A Holly, Jolly Christmas: Burl Ives
    Santa Baby: Madonna
    Christmas in Hollis: Run DMC
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    Hands down, the two best Christmas albums of all time.
    No, that would be A Christmas Gift for You by Phil Spector and the Beach Boys' Christmas Album.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I can go along with most of the list. The Christmas Song is a toss-up.

    Jingle Bell Rock: Brenda Lee.

    I have to agree there, El Chuxter. Two of my faves, as well as Christmas with the Rat Pack.

    I would have to vote as the WORST Christmas carol, the "Silent Night" version by Christina Aguilera. Why? BECAUSE SHE USES HER SCREAM-LEVEL VOLUME FOR TOO MUCH OF A SONG THAT HAS "SILENT" IN ITS TITLE! That's why. Yes, you have a good singing voice, in high ranges; you don't need to prove it on a solemn song. It'll wake the newborn baby.

    In any case, I saw an Andy Williams Christmas CD half-off at Target, and picked it up on Rocketboy's recommendation.

    Two of our local soft rock radio stations switched to an all Christmas format on November 9th! Holy Schnikes! That'll make the withdrawal process all the more painful.

    The local station that does Christmas music in my area switched over a week early, too. Thought it was a little odd. I really didn't start listening until Thanksgiving.

    Good lord, I'd want to shoot myself if that were the case! (the fact its played so long, not the withdrawl).

    One of the local radio stations for 25+ years, at noon on Thanksgiving, play Alice's Restaurant. I've been tuning in for about 10 years or so. Whether or whatever I'm doing is put on hold so I can listen.

    You can have anything you want at Alice's Restaurant...

    'Cept Christmas music waiting until after Thanksgiving, apparently.
