"Different" Christmas Songs

Not that there's anything wrong with the old standards like Bing Crosby and such, but I'm trying to track down some "cooler," "newer" Christmas songs (or standards performed by newer artists), as I'm sure others are as well!

Here are some of my contemporary favorites:

"Children Go Where I Send Thee" Natalie Merchant
"I Saw Three Ships" Sting
"Oi to the World" No Doubt
"Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" U2 (of course)
"Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" John Lennon
"St. Patrick's Day" John Mayer (it really is more like a Christmas song)
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" Tori Amos

What are yours?

Yes! That dialogue that was obviously not scripted. *ahem*

"Oh I'm David Bowie, I live down the road..."
"I'm Bing!"
"This song is real pretty."
"Yeah, it's one of my little boy's favorites..."
