Bing Crosby and David Bowie, “The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth”

Thanks to Lacie for reminding me of this one.

I am trying to set up a queue of Christmas songs and I am failing miserably because I just remembered that I’m not really that into Christmas. I mean, I enjoy getting together and having dinner and such, and I especially enjoy it these days because it means I get to go back to Detroit to see my mom.

But I’m not a Christmas connoisseur, y’know? For every Christmas song I like (“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” performed with the original lyrics and with an appropriate amount of pathos), there are three I hate (“Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “12 Days of Christmas,” I’m glaring at all of you).

So if you have recommendations for Christmas music that doesn’t make me want to stab out my eyes with a candy cane, I’d love to hear them.

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, “Can I Interest You in Hanukkah?” (fromĀ A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!)

A perennial favorite in my household. Yeah, I know I’m a little late with it this year.

…THEY ARE CANDLES!!
