    This is pushing it, but it is now my official favorite song of the season.

    This is also excellent:

    Always a favorite on my hometown radio station back in the day by one of the local bands who played in the small clubs when I was not old enough to go see them.

    No Mariah Carey... C'mon man, it's a pretty good album lol.

    My mum will always have Michael Buble's Christmas album playing on Christmas day and I must admit I don't mind him, so that's what I think of when I think about Christmas songs.

    My Irish pseudo-cousin Brian Giffen and "Christmas #1." It's actually possible we're related, but if so, it's pretty distant.

    My personal favorite, which includes the greatest intro we've ever received, and it's not even in English:

    We're ready for New Years, too:

    I spent too many years in retail while I was working my way through school. I can't deal with Christmas music anymore.

    You know, for us folks here at Gretsch-Talk, this one's probably a little too easy. I'd guess that at least 90% of us already have this in our record collection, but really - is there ever a "wrong time" for a duet with Ann-Margaret?

    That thread would not be complete without the king:

    To me, the Comeback Special version is much better than the original studio version.
