    Lennon's Happy XMas (War is Over) is still my favorite....

    Kinks' "Father Christmas" is way up my list. I've been waiting to hear it for the past couple of weeks, but haven't. Then, 2 days ago, I was on hold with DirecTV and heard it on the phone.
    Yesterday, I stumbled across a familiar Christmas tune (can't remember which) played as rock 'n' roll version in which the band REALLY KICKED ASS. It was awesome. The DJ said the band was named Trans-Siberian Railroad. Never heard of 'em. But I told my wife that I bet they really had fun playing that tune.
    Anybody heard of 'em??

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I saw them a few years ago and it was an awesome show. They only tour this time of year. I think there are two different touring companies.

    Never heard of Trans-Siberian Railroad... have heard of Trans-Siberian Orchestra though
