    I like Michael Buble's Christmas album. I also really like the old Bing Crosby Christmas albums.

    Elvis' Christmas Album - it's a classic. I had it on vinyl and it's now on CD. "Santa Claus is Back in Town" and "Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me" are awesome.

    Don't get the CD called "Blue Christmas", it's not as good.

    If you haven't heard of Pink Martini, check them out. Their Joy to the World album was sensational

    I sent this song around the office on Friday and we all agreed it is the worst song ever...EVER made. I first heard it on a local radio station here as part of a fundraiser last week. The DJs would threaten to play terrible Christmas music, and the only way to stop them was by phoning in and donating to a music therapy program. They played this song, then stopped it halfway through and donated their own money because they couldn't take it anymore.

    On topic...my favourite Christmas CD the Boney M Christmas Album.

    Yes yes yes to Elf's Lament. In mid-November I start looking forward to playing it.

    The Detroit Symphony one is definitely upbeat and all instrumental. The Simply the Best Christmas one has a mix of instrumental and voices, from ballets to old favorites. Some are a bit heavy, especially the more religous ones.

    I have no intention of getting it, but I won't fault anyone who listens to the Bieber Christmas CD, especially since every December the Nsync Christmas CD is added to my Ipod.

    Some of the less-than-well-known Christmas music I like:

    Aliqua--All I Want Mostly a capella female group that does a mix of traditional and traditional with a twist. They do a song called "All Is Calm" that drives me insane because it's the lyrics of "O Holy Night" sung to Schubert's "Ave Maria." So wrong!

    Mediaeval Baebes--Mistletoe & Wine--mostly a capella renditions of medieval carols. Different, but still Christmasy.

    Celtic Christmas--this isn't one I sit and listen to a lot, but I like it as background music when we have guests, as it's different but unobtrusive. People often ask what it is because it's "really nice."

    For pop-Christmas songs, I like a lot of the A Very Special Christmas songs, although I've downloaded most of them individually because some of those songs are dreadful.

    We also listen to all the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas CDs and sometimes to some of the Mannheim Steamroller Cds, although I am not terribly fond of the latter.

    I have that one. Overall, it's a nice CD, but I got it because Camabby from FSW told me that "Please, Daddy, Don't Get Drunk This Christmas" was, hands down, the worst Christmas song ever.

    It's not quite "Christmas Shoes" bad, but it's pretty bad.

    But I love his silent night version.

    I listened to it once , realized that Cam was just about right, and never listened to it again. The rest of the CD is pretty good.

    I forgot Jewel--I like her Christmas album except for "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

    Another one I like is Fisher's very, very simple, stripped down December set, which you can download for free: http://soundcloud.com/ron-wasserman/...sher-christmas

    Bruce Cockburn---Christmas. Absolutely divine.

    One of my favorites:

    The Roches - We Three Kings
    Peace & Love, Gypsy

    Most of my favorites have been already mentioned.

    For those who feel purely this time of year

    This one just used to crack me up. I always do/did retail during the holiday seasons and it is such a cathartic song.

    I like Jack Johnson's cover of Rudolph

    I like Celtic Woman's Christmas music as well.
