christmasWhile listening to yet another rendition of Silent Night this morning, I thought it might be a good time to update my list of ten favourite Christmas songs.

Here's an initial stab at it.

  • The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole
  • 2000 Miles - The Pretenders
  • Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
  • Baby It's Cold Outside - Ray Charles and Betty Carter
  • Little Drummer Boy - Bing Crosby and David Bowie
  • Let Me Sleep - Pearl Jam
  • Song For A Winter's Night - Sarah McLachlan
  • John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War is Over)

Mistress for Christmas - AC/DC should be on your list. Get rid of the coldplay they suck.

There's an entire Weezer Christmas EP floating around!

The Pogues, Bowie and Crosby would make my list.

So would The Waitresses, Sinatra, and maybe even BNL.
