    The release of Coldplay's Christmas song today made me wonder what other Christmas songs you guys find good. I think IMO most of them come off as too cheesy (yes I know that's intended) but some are good enough to outlast the season. What are some great Xmas songs you guys know?

    I'll start:
    "Baby, It's Cold Outside" – Leon Redbone and Zooey Deschanel
    "Happy X-Mas (War is Over)" – John Lennon
    "Don't Shoot Me, Santa" - The Killers
    "Christmas Lights" - Coldplay

    One of my personal favorite is this version of Baby, It's Cold Outside with Anthony Green and Mindy White :p Although way too short for my taste.

    Fall Out Boy - Yule Shoot Your Eye Out
    blink-182 - I Won't Be Home For Christmas
    Go Radio - Oh, Holy Night
    John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
    Paul McCartney - Having A Wonderful Christmas Time (My all time favorite Xmas song even as a child when I didnt know it was Paul.)

    How come I knew in the deepest, darkest corners of my heart that your post would have something to do with Anthony Green? :lol:

    Anyways, one of my favorites is by Vienna Teng. It's called The Atheist Christmas Carol:

    Because man. It's been on my playlists lately, and I didn't go fanboy and post Mookie's Last Christmas even though it has nothing to do with Christmas lyrically.

    And why does AVP suck now? God, and Craig left didnt he?

    In no particular order:

    John Lennon's, The Fray's and Maroon 5's version - Happy Xmas (War Is Over) [see below]
    All of the Jackson 5 Christmas Album
    Paul McCartney - Having a Wonderful Christmas Time
    Bobby Helms - Jingle Bell Rock
    The Killers - Don't Shoot Me Santa
    Zebrahead - All I Want For Christmas Is You
    Litttle Drummer Boy (The original version and Sean Kingston's version)

    My favorite Christmas song at the moment, though, happens to be a version that I just found this year:
    [video=youtube;lFHqyojxYM8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFHqyojxYM8[/video]
    I'm a sucker for The Fray, and this is a touching cover/homage to Lennon's original. Although Maroon 5's version was amazing as well.

    A lot of people think this is a terrible song but I think its rather beautiful. If you look past the fact that its from South Park it really makes you think.
