Gypsy Hombres did a spiffy little Christmas collection.

Try 'A Christmas Gift for You' from Phil Spector. It's the greatest Christmas album EVAR!! Listen to Darlene Love belt out 'Baby Please Come Home'. Takes my breathe away every time. Link

If you're like me and you get tired of the overly sweet Xmas music, try South Park's Xmas album. Just don't listen to it with the kids in the room.

Also there is a band from Minneapolis called Trailer Trash that has a great Xmas record. It's kind of a drunk country swing take on some of the classics:

Pretty much the same for me, except I'll also play "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses. Video

Reverend Horton Heat has a Christmas album. So does Twisted Sister. I think I have another from Brian Setzer. Or you could go with Merry Axemas.

'Jinglebell Jazz' and 'God bless you, Merry Jazzmen' I think the 2 first jazz C'mas albums and probably the best of the genre.

Doc Severinson and the Tonight Show Band C'mas album for some big band.

Mel Torme - this might be his last album from around '92 - excellent stuff

Charlie Byrd
Chet Baker

Barry Manilow's first one, '89 (yes, really) - a near-perfect combination of joy and melancholy.

Naturally, 'A Chuck Brown C'mas'

The 'Sounds of Blackness' do the 'Messiah' in a soul/urban version which is pretty good.

The 2nd and 3rd Amy Grant's.

Hope this helps; I could go on - own approx. 70 C'mas cds.

Seek out some baroque-era (ca. 1650-1770) classical music, especially with trumpets and organ. It will feel like Christmas music but hopefully not as repetitive as the usual stuff piped in on radio. There are tons of compilations out there

Scarrio: Porky Pig's Blue Christmas


As I said in a related TFD thread, Denny Brownlee deserves to be kicked in the nuts by the rotting corpse of Mel Blanc for all eternity, for subjecting mankind to this abomination.

/hint: it takes more than just going "bdea-bdea-bdea" before every other word to make a decent Porky Pig impersonation

Yeah it's pretty awful. Being afflicted by it at work drove me mad. I just felt like everybody should suffer.

Most Underrated: Roy Wood's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.

Most Obscure by a Famous Artist: Jimi Hendrix/Band of Gypsys' "Little Drummer Boy Medley"

Best Bootleg: Bruce Springsteen's "Pilgrim in the Temple of Love"

Best spoken word: William S. Burrough's "A Junkie's Christmas"

Best Chuck Berry cover: Dave Edmunds's "Run Rudolph Run."

Best 78rpm: Rev. J.M. Gates "Death May Be Your Santa Claus"

Coolest: The Greedies' (Thin Lizzy with Steve Jones and Paul Cook) "A Merry Jingle"

So bad it's good: The Sisterhood's "Rockin Disco Santa Claus."

My Personal Favorite: Elvis Presley's "Santa Claus is Back in Town."

And because I damn well feel like it, Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas From the Family."

Marcus Aurelius: Here ya go.


Wow, thanks for the link. Could feel myself wanting to go into trance listening to that.

One of my new favorites is On This Day Earth Shall Ring (Personent Hodie). Has the feel of Carol Of The Bells, especially when performed crisply. Many performances on youtube are too muddy or slow for my tastes, making it sound like a dirge, not an old German dance tune. Here are a few decent ones to try:

Link - a cappella young men's performance, pretty good

Link - a medieval-style performance, a.k.a. the Ren Faire feel

The version I have is from a random collection CD called A Traditional Christmas, performed by The Mistletoe Orchestra & Singers. Sounds like they were recorded in the 30s, the sound quality is that spotty. But it has quite the energy. EIP if you want, uh, information.
