1. Jesse Malin - Xmas. Right now this is my fave, it has the right mix of melancholy and holiday imagery for a great song, definitely not a throwaway. I'm linking to the live version on Mercury Retrograde, but the original is on the must have album The Fine Art of Self Destruction.
2. The Raveonettes - The Christmas Song.
3. El Vez - Feliz Navidad. I prefer this version over the classic Jose Feliciano version but either is a must.
4. Eartha Kitt - Santa Baby.
5. Alvin and the Chipmunks - The Chipmunk Song. Yes, it can get annoying but it's not Christmas without the Chipmunks!
6. Beck - The Little Drum Machine Boy. I couldn't find an easy link to this so you'll have to listen to a sample on iTunes but it's worth it for all it's classic Beck weirdness.
7. Fiona Apple - Frosty the Snowman. Her strange voice is perfect for this song.
So what's your favorite holiday song? I'd love to know!
