O Holy Night
Deck the Halls (the Chinese version on A Christmas Story) "Deck the harrs with barrs of horry, fr ra ra ra ra ra ra ra!!"
Blink 182's "I won't be home for Christmas"
Weird Al's: Santa song (the true title escapes me)
"Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer"
"I saw Mama kissing Santa Claus" always freaked me out as a kid and still bothers me...I just don't like going there....Santa's like a grandpa figure, he shouldn't make out with anyone but Mrs. Claus!!

"Santa, I'm Right Here" by Toby Keith. Awesome song about a boy who is homeless at Christmas, but I warn you--the first time you hear it, you might want to have a Kleenex handy.
Speaking of needing a kleenex for some of these songs, have you heard "Those Christmas Shoes". That is a real tear-jerker. It's about a boy who wants to buy these shoes for his mom who is dying, and he says "He wants his mom to look beautiful if she goes to meet Jesus tonight". It will break your heart!

Is the name of the movie the same as the song? OR do you know when it will be on? I'll stock up on kleenex right before.

LOL, I have to agree with Lori on this one. That is the best Christmas movie of all time. I love it, and its the only movie we will watch over and over every year, and still laugh.
I also love Blue Christmas.
The most beautiful song I have ever heard is Away in a Manger, as performed by Kevin Derryberry. I have never heard it performed that way before, and it brings tears to my eyes, each time I listen. It was played a few years ago, when he was a guest on Rick and Bubba, and I went out, and got the CD right away, just for that song. If you have never heard it, listen, its worth it.

"Christmas Time Is Here" by Vince Guaraldi (really the entire soundtrack from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" by VG)
"Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" - Bing Crosby and David Bowie - just because the pairing of The Crooner and The Thin White Duke is so surreal
Others that made my list:
"Merry Christmas [I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight]" - The Ramones
"There Ain't No Sanity Clause" - The D@mned
"White Christmas" - Stiff Little Fingers
Oh yeah, I forgot...
"O Holy Night" by Eric T. Cartman and finally
"Mr. Hanky" by Kyle Broflovski

1. White Christmas- Bing Crosby
2. The Christmas Song- Bing Crosby et al.
Anything else by Bing Crosby, Mel Torme, Nat King Cole...my father is a huge fan of old Christmas Music. I was brought up listening to the classics and it brings back a lot of memories every year.
On a more contemporary note, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey always puts me in a good mood. It's so upbeat, you can't help but be happy.
Silent Night by Boyz II Men is hands down, the best version of the song I've ever heard.
Anything from Manheim Steamroller is great, especially Carol of the Bells and Silent Night. At the end of Silent Night when you hear the wind howling, that's actual wind you're hearing (not some synthesized garbage). MS actually opened up the windows of their studio and let the wind blow through in order to get the sound on tape.

That name sounds familiar. If I am not mistaken, he did praise and worship for a conference that I attended at Shocco Springs (near Talladega) last year.
