ChristmaHanuKwanzaaPalooza 2010
 
I know many of you are probably sick of hearing about the holidays by now, but Christmas is my birthday so you're just going to have to deal with another topic because I say so.

This topic is for you to post your favorite Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, or other winter holiday songs. You can also post quirky holiday songs or holiday songs you hate (but you have to post ones you like too, so it doesn't become all negative).

If you happen to think 'Wonderful Christmas Time' is a worthy addition to the Paul McCartney canon, don't worry, we won't judge you. Only God can judge you for your sins. If you're an atheist who likes it, you will be bludgeoned about the head with lobsters by your peers, in the time-honored tradition of our people.


So, here's some of my favorites:

John Lennon - Happy Christmas (War is Over)
Not even the sound of the cat being strangled in the background (AKA Yoko) could ruin this song.

David Bowie & Bing Crosby - Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth

Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson - Winter Song

Mavis Staples - Christmas Vacation - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation Soundtrack

Olivia Olson - All I Want for Christmas - Love Actually Soundtrack
A great song off a fantastic soundtrack from one of my favorite Christmas movies ever.

The Kinks - Father Christmas

Run-D.M.C. - Christmas in Hollis
"This is Christmas music."


On the weirder side of things:

Neil Diamond - The Chanukah Song
It's not weird that Neil Diamond would do a Hanukkah-themed song obviously, just that he would do the Adam Sandler Hanukkah song.

Billy Idol - Jingle Bell Rock
I know the first thing that pops into my head when I want to hear the Christmas standards sung normally is Billy Idol. He looks like the living embodiment of Splodenode's year-round Christmas avatar, which is nightmare fuel:

I know I'm super lame, but "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" by *N Sync is my all-time favorite Christmas song.

Followed by "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey.

"Thankful Heart," from A Muppet Christmas Carol. :) Ever since it first hit home video, my family has watched that every single Christmas Eve. It was my Dad's favorite movie.

This is the first Christmas without him. God, that's going to suck. :(

Hugs, Timby.

I think Locutus knows my favorite Christmas song but I'll post it anyway. ;)

Yeah, this will be the first Christmas without my Mom as well. Thanksgiving was already pretty rough on my youngest sister, who started crying, so I can't imagine what Christmas is going to be like.

You have my sympathies, man.

Hey, it's that song by George Michael and... that other guy. :devil:

Good to see you back in the neighborhood, Kes. :)

Thanks, guys! :) Hugs for you as well, Locutus. It's got to be so hard for your family, and for you with your birthday coming up. I hope you and your family get to spend time together and maybe take some comfort in sharing good memories of your mom with each other.
