Non-Christmas songs you always associate with the holidays

    For some reason, my hometown radio stations always played Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me" around Christmas. I never heard it any other time of the year, and now when I hear it (which is rarely) I think of the holidays. Are there any songs like that for you?

    "Life In A Northern Town" by Dream Academy. I can hear it in the middle of July and it always reminds me of winter - specifically the Christmas season.

    I've heard Nick Drake wrote that, but I never heard a recording of him performing it.

    For me, it's Bowie's "Aladdin Sane" album. Obviously not Christmasy, but I associate it with the Christmas break during my freshman year of college. My best friend from back home and I smoked insane amounts of weed one weekend and listened to that one over and over again as we stonedly went about our merry ways. Surprisingly, I remember that time well.

    I remember seeing the Black Sabbath Mob Rules album cover in a record store display when I was a kid during Christmas and it scared the hell out of me.

    I remember headbanger dudes in high school having that t-shirt. Yeah, creepy humanoids with no faces. Hell of a choice for a Christmas display. Although I guess there's a resemblance to the Ghost of Christmas Future in Dickens.

    "Sweet Baby James"

    "The first of December was covered with snow,
    and so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston,
    Tho the Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting,
    10 miles behind us, 10,000 more to go ... "

    I married me a wife
    She's been trouble all my life
    Run me out in the cold rain and snow

    Songs that came out around Christmas always remind me of Christmas no matter when I hear them.

    For instance, "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston reminds me of the winter of '92, when I wanted to slit my wrists every time I heard the song because it reminded me of the love who'd broken my heart. Now, I just want to slit my wrists BECAUSE THE SONG SUCKS.

    "A Long December" by Counting Crows, but not so much these days.
