I recently heard a Michael Buble version of the song and it just had no soul to it. Boris Karloff owns that song.
The Mojo Nixon version is pretty good, especially the nods to the Addams Family theme.

That being said, how incredibly awesome and cool would it be if Tom Waits did a version?

Oh, man a Tom Waits rendition would be wicked.

Re: How The Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)....

I haven't seen the original Grinch this year (never bothered with the Carrey version), but it's definitely one of those classics I make a point of watching every Christmastime, along with Charlie Brown, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Carol and Bad(der) Santa.

Yeah, I have to admit I don't really like the Grinch. Most of those cartoon Christmas specials such as Charlie Brown, Frosty, and Rudolph tend to be rather poor. I think they get a lot of bonus points for nostalgia.

I'm more of a Christmas Carol (Alastair Sim) and A Christmas Story type of guy. And of course Die Hard.

I LOVE the original. I watch it every year.
Same here. It's a Christmas eve tradition in my house. I had it on VHS for many years, then put it on a DVD-R--exactly one week before the official DVD was released, which annoyed me, but for some reason, I just can't part with the DVD-R of my old tape. I must be a sentimentalist.

Or just nuts.
