"Run Rudolf Run" by Chuck Berry
"Sleigh Ride" by the Brian Setzer Orchestra
"Winter Wonderland" by Peggy Lee
"Happy Xmas (War is Over)" by John Lennon
"Little Drummer Boy/Silent Night/Auld Lang Syne" by Jimi Hendrix
Sounds like you already have it covered, but Otis Redding's version of White Christmas. Ravonettes' Christmas Song, too, I suppose.
For your final "Christmas-y" category, personal favorite I throw on is Dave Matthew's The Maker. Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds had an amazing version at Radio City a few years back, but some more upbeat versions out there too.
it was the last month of the year
Anything from the Phil Spector Christmas record though I am particularly partial to "Marshmallow World" by Darlene Love.
And "Jesus Christ" by Big Star, below.
Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry.
U2-Christmas (Baby Come Home)
DMB-The Christmas Song
Anything from Sulfjan Stevens' Christmas album http://music.sufjan.com/album/songs-for-christmas
If you have access to Pandora, we love the Indie Holiday and the Christmas Rock stations.
Squirrel Nut Zippers- Sleigh Ride
Eve 6 - The First Noel
SR-71 - Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You
Richard Cheese - Christmas in Las Vegas
Barenaked Ladies - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Relient K - Handel's Messiah
Not sure exactly why the song is played during the holidays, but whatever ... his version is thirteen minutes plus of awesomeness.
And of course, "Mistress for Christmas" from AC/DC.
I was going to say exactly both of those.
before you allow Buble into the mix.
A phrase I shall never utter.
Perry and Andy are good additions, too. If one is so inclined, add Harry Connick Jr.
I celebrate their entire Christmas Album.
Not suitable for work, obviously
Pandora has a Christmas Wrap (get it?!) station. I discovered this last night. It was pretty fantastic.
