    With all the Darlene Love on Letterman fans here every year I'm surprised mine hasn't been mentioned yet, "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)" I first heard the U2 version which is still great, but her version blows that away.

    Traditionally, my favorite is "Sleigh Ride" or "Do you Hear What I hear"

    Just thought about my kids ... and their favorite.

    The Hippopotamus Song

    Don't want crocodiles, or rhinocerouseses
    I only like ... hippopotamuseses

    It's a (lame) joke, o man of many Xmases.

    As I said on another thread, not an ounce of humor or originality anywhere.

    Did you mean Bowie and Crosby?

    Anything from Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas.

    No, I "meant" Sting & Bing.

    Please refer to Best Xmas song, British artist thread.

    I've always liked Nat King Cole's Christmas Song. I have an African-American friend who despises White Christmas he says "For obvious reasons. For once I'd like to see a Black Christmas. I said you do every year a-hole. You live in Miami. It never snows there."

    O Holy Night, as sung by a man and (now deceased) old lady at the church where I grew up.

    The man is a great singer and the old lady had one of those old, country gospel voices. It was the highlight of the season for me.

    She just died this year. It won't be the same.

    The one where she meets the hot guy buying cranberries at the grocery store -- love that one -- gets me everytime.

    I also like George Michael's "Last Christmas."
