Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Brenda Lee
Jingle Bell Rock, Bobby Helms
I love the Hall and Oates version almost as much. They definitely make a great video, but I love this song because it's just so happy.
Baby it's Cold Outside, Dean Martin
The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late), The Chipmunks
All I Want for Christmas is You, Mariah Carey
White Christmas, Bing Crosby
Favorite version of my favorite Christmas song, from my favorite Christmas movie!Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, Burl Ives
O Little Town of Bethlehem, Jewel
Jewel is truly one of a kind. This is an absolutely gorgeous version of one of my favorite religious Christmas songs. The entire album is fantastic. Also worth a listen: "O Holy Night" and "Ave Maria".
Christmas at Ground Zero, Weird Al Yankovic
This one's for Jarred. We loved when Vh1 aired this video at Christmas time (we loved when Vh1 aired Christmas videos period. Hell, I'd settle for any videos at this point. Except for that Kesha girl.) It's from the early 90's and is a delightful little diddy about celebrating Christmas during nuclear war. The video features old footage from Cold War propaganda films and the song includes lyrics like "I'll duck and cover with my yuletide lover underneath the mistletoe". My brother and I were sick, twisted little kids I guess.
Please Come Home for Christmas, Aaron Neville
[sidenote: I do a delightful Aaron Neville impression. It sounds sorta like Aaron Neville impersonating Cher impersonating Aaron Neville.]
Auld Lang Syne, Susan Boyle
Here's another holiday classic that people love to eff up. It's hard to find a truly beautiful version, but Susan's angelic voice is perfect for this song
