Louis Armstrong's "Christmas in New Orleans," perhaps? Johnny Cash and Neil Young doing "The Little Drummer Boy"? Or maybe "Christmas In Hollis" by Run-DMC?
All three are on the CHATTER ho-ho compilation, a CD mercifully void of that "Wonderful Christmastime" dreck by the disappointing Beatle -- though it does include a pre-freak Michael Jackson yipping about his mother kissing Santa Claus. For every yin, a yang.
Other blog faves:
•"Yule Shoot Your Eye Out" by Fallout Boy.
•"Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End)" by The Darkness.
•"Peace Anyway" from The Black Crowes.
OK, maybe the Crowes isn't about the holidays, but the sentiments still apply.
