Christmas Music

It's that time of year kids! Does anyone have any Christmas music suggestions (new and old) for the music rotation?

Here's what I've got for starters:

Death Cab For Cutie: Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Ron Sexsmith: Maybe This Christmas
The Raveonettes: The Christmas Song
Pedro the Lion: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Feist: lo, how a rose e're blooming
Bright Eyes: Blue Christmas
Teenage Fanclub: Christmas Eve
Viva Voce: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Erlend Oye: Last Christmas
Yo La Tengo: It's Christmas Time
The Flaming Lips: A Change at Christmas
The Eels: Christmas Is Going To The Dogs
Low: Just Like Christmas
PAS/CAL: Last Christmas
Mogwai: Christmas Song
The Flaming Lips: Christmas At The Zoo
Dismemberment Plan: This Christmas
Bright Eyes: Little Drummer Boy
Pedro the Lion: I Heard the Bells on Christmas
The Walkmen: Christmas Party

And then there's Sufjan...
Joy To The World
Only At Christmas Time
That was the Worst Christmas Ever!
Hey Guys! It's Christmas Time!
The Little Drummer Boy
Come On! Let's Boogey to the Elf Dance!
Sister Winter
We're Goin' To the Country!

There's always Blink-182's "I Won't Be Home For Christmas" also, that entire Bright Eyes X-Mas CD except for the reading of "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" is pretty solid. I've also got The Murder City Devils (my favorite band of all time) do'n an original song entitled "364 Days"..I personally would like to hear the late Robert Goulet's Christmas record make it on air...unfortunately I only have it on vinyl, so we'll have to transfer it. We could always do Bruce Springsteen's version of "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town"...that's all I can think of at this point

P.S. any of Adam Sandler's many renditions of his oh-so-famous Hannuka(sp) song

Birdwell if you could rip that Robert Goulet Christmas record at the R&D lab, I won't yell at you for one whole day.

That's a freaking fantastic list, Reid, it makes me super excited for Christmas! Those all need to be on the air!

And I really want to hear that Walkmen song.

lovely choices. speaking of sufjan, check out the great sufjan xmas song exchange:

"Here's how it works: write an original Christmas song, record it, and send the song to us (see below for instructions). Asthmatic Kitty will pick a winner, and that person will trade rights to their song for rights to Sufjan's song.

Just like a gift exhange, Sufjan's song becomes your song. You can hoard it for yourself, sell it to a major soft drink corporation, use it in your daughter's first Christmas video, or share it for free on your website. No one except Sufjan and you will hear his song, unless you decide otherwise. You get the song and all legal rights to it. We get the same rights to your song."-http://xmas.asthmatickitty.com/index2.html
