    My favourite Christmas song is Stop the Calavry. But any Christmas song is great, because it gets me in the Christmassy mood! :D

    My favourite song is "Just Like Christmas" by Low. I can't stand all the cheesy/traditional stuff - mainly because it's been played to death longer than I've been alive.

    Ooh, and "Christmas Song" by Dave Matthews Band. Great song that I can play badly on the guitar.

    I tend to get annoyed by hokey lyrics, but like Christmas music overall anyway, so I assembled my own personal album of instrumental versions of the "classic" carols (except one in Latin, which counts well enough because I can listen without being conscious of what they're saying) from a half-dozen different sources.

    I've been listening to Sarah McLachlan's Wintersun album, which is pretty good. I can't stand those awful Christmas pop compilations any more, though I liked some of the songs when they first came out.

    Here's a few alternative Winter/Christmas songs:

    Grey Eye Glances - Our Own Place And Time (A Christmas Song)
    Grey Eye Glances - Snow
    Kate Bush - December Will Be Magic Again
    Loreena McKennitt - Seeds Of Love
    Loreena McKennitt - Snow
    Sarah Mclachlan - River
    Vienna Teng - The Atheist Christmas Carol

    Me, too. I also like John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" very much.

    I've always loved Wizzard's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day" - they used to put as much money and effort into each single as most other bands put into an album.

    I don't know about best, but I can tell you the worst. "Wonderful Christmas Time" by the Beatles.

    Ugh doesn't even begin to cover it.

    For me, it's not Christmas until I've heard Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody, Wizzard - I wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day, and The Pogues with Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York. Only after I've heard those three songs in a day is it officially Christmas!

    This is a nice seasonal discussion:) Is it early or late?

    Have always loved Christmas by the Who. Also do have to admit to loving Walking in the Air from the Snowman
