Hi, all. I'm a little burnt out on many of the "traditional" Christmas and holiday season classic songs and would love some ideas for other songs/versions to check out.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph" is the most rocking and least sticky/sentimental Christmas song ever. That's why it gets my vote.

John Lennon's "War Is Over" is my favorite sticky/sentimental Christmas song but he always makes that kind of stuff real good.

NPR had a piece on new Christmas albums. I liked the songs they played off Shelby Lynne's new one...

2. Miracle - Matisyahu
3. We Need a Little Christmas - Angela Lansbury (Mame Broadway soundtrack)
4. Candlelight - The Maccabeats
5. ¿Donde Esta Santa Claus? - Guster
6.Christmas is All Around - Billy Mack (from Love Actually)
7. Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum - Jimmy Buffett
8. Happy Xmas (War is Over) - John Lennon (see also the Damien Rice cover of this song)
9. Santa Claus, Go Straight to the Ghetto - James Brown
10. Holly Leaves and Christmas Trees - Elvis
11. Spotlight on Christmas - Rufus Wainwright
12. Christmas Don't Be Late - Alvin & the Chipmunks
13. The 12 Days of Christmas - John Denver & the Muppets
14. Kissin' by the Mistletoe - Aretha Franklin
