The holiday season is upon us and shopping centers and malls are oozing with Christmas cheer. I'll have to admit a lot of the classic tunes grate against my soul, but some do remind me of better days and bring me into the purchasing spirit. (I bet my Secret Santa target appreciates those songs in particular.)

In our modern world, the legend (or at least iconography) of Santa Claus, Father Christmas or Kris Kringle is sung on high from every reach of the globe. His elves work in devious and mysterious ways, effecting every culture they find... and on that note, in our multi-cultural community, any seasonal holiday tune is valid... What music transforms your normal self into a jolly old elf?

Satan Santa made me do it....
I didn't want to get any coal this year.

I've Got Some Presents for Santa
by Sarah Taylor and Bill Mumy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4worYOjAcFg

For those who prefer to be naughty AND nice, this one is a new favorite of mine. It may not be appropriate for younger ears, but it isn't outright nasty either. Bill "Danger" Mumy is one of the greatest musicians of our time, bringing us soulful and intelligent songs as well as silly favorites - He's the Art Barnes half of Barnes and Barnes, most famous for their timeless classic, "Fish Heads." And if that wasn't enough to perk your interest, he's also known as Will Robinson, space cadet.

Catch this one on iTunes and start looking for Bill's relatively rare albums.

1973 was a memorable year for Christmas songs and to this day I really think the season is upon us when I start to hear these 2 songs from local bands, usually in stores.

Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade



I wish it could be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard

Tom Lehrer: A Christmas Carol

Quote:
So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
Driving his reindeer across the sky.
Dont stand underneath when they fly by.

Though the Chuck Berry original is no slouch, my favorite is the kick ass Keith Richards remake. It smokes!

I always jokingly say that it's not really Christmas until I hear Santa Baby and Feliz Navidad on the radio (not that I listen to the radio very much).
Since Feliz Navidad isn't a Santa-song, and therefore doesn't count for this list, I'll just add Santa Baby... while I'm not a big Madonna fan, I do like her version of this song the best of all the zillions out there. Really a departure for me, since I'm more into "vintage" tunes in general...
