need a decent Xmas CD

I work in a shop which means the cracking out the Christmas Cds very soon. We've got the standards eg. Frankie and Deano, White Christmas, even Mariah Carey .
We've had the same ones for 10 years and it's driving me bonkers. Can anyone recommend some halfway decent Chrissy CDs?

THanks:Pray:

You want a "rawk" xmas?

Good luck.

Try Elvis. Seriously, Elvis sang some good Xmas tunes.

Though I've always been partial to Johnny Mathis.

I've got Johnny Cash & Neil Young singing "Litttle Drummer Boy."

We should make and Interference Xmas album.

Another suggestion: Father Christmas- The Kinks.

U2 - "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"

Speaking of which, the original version is on the Phil Spector Christmas album. Half of the album is really great, most of the other half is very meh, and the remaining songs are a big "wtf".

But it's worth getting up for the excellent bits.

If you like mellow but not cheesy, you can never, ever go wrong with Vince Guaraldi's "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

Sufjan Stevens' Songs For Christmas album is also a bargain.

That is a good one. I was working at Sears last holiday season, and we had the same CD on repeat all day. Luckily, that song was on it. I might have gone completely insane otherwise.

Sorry. That's the Ben Keith Christmas album that has Neil Young and Johnny Cash doing "The Little Drummer Boy." And Neil doing "What Child Is This?"

Smashing Pumpkins - Christmastime is pretty good, too. As is Coldplay's cover of The Pretenders' "2000 Miles"

I love David Bowie and Bing Crosby's "Little Drummer Boy" to death.
