Do They Know It's Christmas? - Band Aid

Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) - The Darkness

A Merry Jangle - The Greedies (aka Thin Lizzy & The Sex Pistols)

If you like jingle bells and we wish you a merry christmas, then check out the greedies' song because it's a rocked up version of the two of them.

I love christmas music but I prefer the Trans-Siberian Orchestra version of any christmas song if there is one.

King Diamond's No Presents For Christmas is pretty fun too.

And Charlotte Church's version of Oh Holy Night is one of the most moving things I've ever heard.

Speaking of Holiday Music, Here's a DVD a found in the Wal Mart $5.OO DVD Display today. It's a 2006 release of the 1982 Children's Classic. If you've never seen RAYMOND BRIGGS' THE SNOWMAN, then you should.

For some rockin` Christmas music and a good version of The 12 days, try the little known and under-rated guitar god Gary Hoey!

I'm more into the older, classic versions when it comes to songs like that, but it was interesting--thanks! :D

Please tell me that is not an actual song :unsure:

yes, yes it is. And I find it quite hillarious, and the synth programming in it is badass. I mostly, just find it extremely funny.

As far as most Christmas songs go I don't enjoy that many, I've heard them all too much. I like the Jethro Tull Xmas album, some BB King xmas tunes I've heard, and some of ole blue eyes.

Yep, it's the absolute best. Instrumental, great music, and it takes you back to being a kid and watching "Charlie Brown Christmas". Great stuff.
