Christmas Songs That Dont Suck

So, its less than a month away and we've started being bombarded with middle of the road Christmas music. This thread will hopefully serve as a safe haven from such atrocities. Post links to Christmas music that doesnt make the baby Jesus cry. I'll start off with one of the finest around

YouTube - The Pogues & Kirsty McColl - Fairytale Of New York (Xmas Song)

Old or new, it doesnt matter. post if it doesnt suck

Strange how familiar the doorbell at the beginning of this video has become

YouTube - "Little Drummer Boy", David Bowie and Bing Crosby

And I should add that if anyone posts that horrid McCartney synth abortion, Santa will take a dump in your stocking

Hear it. Know it. Love it. Probably not all you need as far as Christmas music is concerned, but it's the only full album of it that I ever bother with.

Also, before anyone else gets to it:

YouTube - The Kinks -- Father Christmas (better audio)

I'm a big time traditionalist when it comes to Christmas music. There are very little contemporary or even fairly modern takes I enjoy, and most pop Christmas songs are cringe worthy. Give me Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole and I'm good to go. The aforementioned Vince Guaraldi Trio album is also in my pantheon.

That being said, I do enjoy Sufjan's Christmas stuff and liked the recent Dylan Christmas album. Both will be getting spins around Chez Impy this season.

This thread is a paradox.


There are no christmas songs that don't suck. That's why they're christmas songs.

Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown soundtrack is the Xmas music apex, agreed.

Don't Shoot Me Santa is still awesome though

I'm the same. I'm a sucker for 40s/50s Christmas music. Makes me nostalgic for a time that I wasnt even alive in.

I listened to that during Christmas 1995 and found I could see around corners.
