Low's Christmas EP is quite good. Similar to Sufjan, you're going to get a lot of religious themes though, which a lot of people ironically don't like in Christmas music.

I don't mind the religious songs or carols but not if they sound like I'm in church that would just send me to sleep.


Great suggestions so far. Might have to put in and order at JBhifi.

There used to be this really cool blog last year that had tons of Christmas music on it.

I don't remember the address and I expect most of the files are gone now but it was nice to hear all sorts of oddball Christmas tunes.

Anyway 'Christmas in Hollis' is like, best Christmas song ever.

I like the first Very Special Christmas CD, but it's one of those CDs where I love about half the songs and find the other half to be crap.

I need to pick up that Sufjan Christmas CD set.

Coolest christmas and edge of christmas are both better than average

http://www.amazon.com/Coolest-Christ...4795980&sr=8-1


http://www.amazon.com/Edge-Christmas...4796039&sr=1-1

Love Cocteau Twins songs on these

Also, the Brian Setzer christmas CDs are very good, as is the Barenaked Ladies' one

I adore the Bright Eyes Christmas album. Doesn't even have to be the holiday season for me to bust those songs out.

Not sure why I don't have this, I should pick it up soon I guess.


I also had absolutely no idea Cocteau Twins had Christmas songs, Toscano. I''ll have to look those up as well.


They're only predictable because they're awesome, Zonemeister.

My mother is obsessed with Christmas music.

I think her favorite is Nat King Cole's Christmas album. She also likes Michael W. Smith's.

Nat King Cole's version of "The Christmas Song" is my all-time favorite Christmas song.

That opening swoop of strings!
That piano solo!
That VOICE!

Barenaked Ladies - Barenaked For The holidays is good fun - and even includes a few Hannukah tunes!

Also check out 'The Night Santa Went Crazy' by Wierd Al... top tune!

Lyrics:

Down in the workshop all the elves were makin' toys
For the good Gentile girls and the good Gentile boys
When the boss busted in, nearly scared 'em half to death
Had a rifle in his hands and cheap whiskey on his breath
From his beard to his boots he was covered with ammo
Like a big fat drunk disgruntled Yuletide Rambo
And he smiled as he said with a twinkle in his eye,
"Merry Christmas to all - now you're all gonna die!"

The night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nick went insane
Realized he'd been gettin' a raw deal
Something finally must have snapped in his brain

Well, the workshop is gone now, he decided to bomb it
Everywhere you'll find pieces of Cupid and Comet
And he tied up his helpers and he held the elves hostage
And he ground up poor Rudolph into reindeer sausage
He got Dancer and Prancer with an old German Luger
And he slashed up Dasher just like Freddy Krueger
And he picked up a flamethrower and he barbequed Blitzen
And he took a big bite and said, "It tastes just like chicken!"

The night Santa went crazy
The night Kris Kringle went nuts
Now you can't hardly walk around the North Pole
Without steppin' in reindeer guts

There's the National Guard and the F.B.I.
There's a van from the Eyewitness News
And helicopters circlin' 'round in the sky
And the bullets are flyin', the body count's risin'
And everyone's dyin' to know, oh Santa, why?
My my my my my my
You used to be such a jolly guy

Yes, Virginia, now Santa's doin' time
In a federal prison for his infamous crime
Hey, little friend, now don't you cry no more tears
He'll be out with good behavior in 700 more years
But now Vixen's in therapy and Donner's still nervous
And the elves all got jobs working for the postal service
And they say Mrs. Clause, she's on the phone every night
With her lawyer negotiating the movie rights

They're talkin' bout - the night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nicholas flipped
Broke his back for some milk and cookies
Sounds to me like he was tired of gettin' gypped

Wo, the night Santa went crazy
The night St. Nick went insane
Realized he's gettin' a raw deal
Something finally must have snapped in his brain
Wo, something finally must have snapped in his brain
Tell ya, something finally must have snapped... in his brain

Sarah McLachlan's, "Wintersong" - probably the only Christmas CD that doesn't drive me up a wall. I guess it's mainly due in part to the bulk of the material not being the typical, "holly-jolly" Christmas music you hear on every oddball FM radio station this time of year...

Her version of "Noel" =



Also, Trans-Siberian Orchestra is always nice ("Christmas Eve, Sarajevo" = ).
