Does "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" count as non-traditional?

Or "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"?

One by the Klezmonauts - "Santa Gey Gezunderheit"


"I used to think that it was tough
To get the Spring Line out
But here's a guy who really knows
What hard work's all about

Billions of deliveries
With no option to be late
That's a lot of schlepping
Santa gey gezunderheit"

I can think of loads of nontraditional Christmas songs I like. The one going through my head right now is Neil Young's Star of Bethlehem. I don't pretend to understand what he may have intended but, like any decent work of art, it makes me ponder the possibilities every time I hear it. And I kinda just like it, too.

That Greg Lake song has been going through my head for two days now!

Thanks for the Neil Young -- I love his stuff! Don't think I've heard that one though.

I'd say my favourite is The Pogues' Fairytale of New York:



Quote:
"I could have been someone"
"Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you"

"I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can´t make it out alone
I've built my dreams around you"

I'm a bit confused over which Bill Nighy number.

This? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_JRyhJiXQ8

Or this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0
