Most Christmas songs I can stand. My college choir (which I am in) gives a concert on Sunday. My favorite song on the program is called "Come We Shepherds" by Richard Horn and Richard Crashaw, published by MorningStar Music Publishers.

I actually don't mind Christmas songs at all, I just don't like hearing them for 8 weeks before the actual day.

I can't believe only one person has said "Fairytale of New York." There is so much to that song. It's more about people in real life facing the holidays; the sadness, the isolation, the fleeting hope. It's poignantly balanced in humor and sadness. There's just not enough that can be said about the instrumentation and the performance, especialy Kristy MacColl's. And I hate to say it, but this is much better than U2's "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)"

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
And I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars
Big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old

When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on the corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
And the bells were ringing
Out for Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Living there almost dead on a drip
In that bed

You scum bag
You maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God
It's our last

I could have been someone
So could anyone
You took my dreams
From me when I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

Low - 'Christmas' (the entire album......thought I've yet to listen to it.....)

I'm positive it will be great. Other than that, there are many songs I will post at a later date when I have time.
