    Even though I'm not of that persuasion...
    Come Christmas

    Oh Holy Night..
    Sung by
    Full chorus
    Or
    The likes of Pavaratti or Robert Goulette

    There is only one Christmas song :)

    "I wish it could be christmas everyday" - Wizzard (Roy Wood) - played everything himself I believe. When I saw the performance on 'top of the pops' as a kid I couldn't work out how he could be on the drums, saxophone, guitar and sing at the same time :)

    Mine is "**** You, Mother****er (It's Christmas!)" by Brad Sucks.

    I'd post it but I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea.

    My favorite is the one I made myself. I’m recording a new vocal (a female singer who has worked for Disney) tomorrow afternoon.

    Have you heard it sung by Leontyne Price? Man, that's something.

    If it wasn't for Bugs and the Looney Tunes, my entire childhood would have been a complete wasteland.

    few years back we had a sort of informal Compose a Christmas Song contest elsewhere. It was pretty hilarious.

    This was one of my submissions and remains my absolute 2nd favourite Christmas Carol (just behind The Christmas Song by Mel Torme)

    Recently I found that Enya has made some Christmas recordings, and this is now one of my favorite versions of Silent Night:
