What is your favourite Christmas song?

Asked by TheProfoundPorcupine (2512 points ) December 21st, 2012

What is your favourite Christmas song and why? I am not talking about carols, but those songs that you like because they are so cheesy, or the song that instantly makes you know it is close to Christmas the first time you hear it each year.

For me I think it is Fairytale of New York by The Pogues as I just think it has a different sound to it than most of the others and it does make me think of Christmas as soon as I hear it.

Over to you.

With the We Three Kings song I always remember as a kid singing the version.

We three kings of Orient are,
One in a bus and one in a car,
One on a scooter, beeping his hooter,
Smoking a big cigar

I am often melancholy around Christmas and this song fits my mood perfectly.

I like Please Come Home for Christmas by the Eagles; also various versions of Blue Christmas. Oh, and this.
@TheProfoundPorcupine the version I knew goes:
We three kings of Orient are
Smoking on a rubber cigar
It was loaded, it explo-oded
No more kings we are

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. I like that she was drinking too much eggnog.

My very favorite mash up. Nothing beats David Bowie and Bing Crosby together (skip to 1:50 for the music). I also really love the Barenaked Ladies version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen with Sarah McLachlan.
