dpmcnevin - it's called carol of the bells.

peregin8 - let me sing you something else! "ooh baby do you know what that's worth? ooh heaven is a place on earth! they say in heaven, love comes first, we'll make heaven a place on earth!" oh wait, that's not better, is it.

my problem is that there are several vying for the win and i can't decide. and i don't know the name of the lead candidate.

Allow me to lodge this as a second-least-favorite:

"LAAAAAAST Christmas, I gave you my heart
but the very next day, you gave it away!"
Etc.

Goddamn you, Wham!

I also nominate "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus" for:

1) Creepiest

2) Painful reminder of single-parent childhood - never actually got the "joke" of the song until I was an adult

I am also forgetting "Christmas in Hollis" by Run DMC, and that Blink 182 Xmas song is pretty funny.

It should be illegal to play that more than once a season and they should issue some sort of coded warning about when it's going to be

I have a copy of Dream Theater doing "O Holy Night" that's *almost* as creepy as I want it to be, but the quest for an ever creepier version continues.

there is a contemporary christmas mix on itunes that is specifically made up of incredibly creepy christmas music renditions. suzanne vega sings some damn thing on it, i'll look it up when i get home.

Oooh Oh Holy Night is good. But then I'd have to put Harry Chapin's Mr. Tanner on the list since it's sung in the background as the Christmas song I like just to be different.

Oh holy crap, I can't believe I forgot my other favorite Christmas song, the Pogues' "Fairytale of New York." Absolute classic!

I realise now that Corporal Blossom's "Little Drummer Boy," is only my second favorite.

[dis-]honorable mention: those albums of instrumental christmas carols composed entirely of sampled cat meows and/or dog barks.

"I'm gonna spend my Christmas with a Dalek"... Not that I'd recommend spending Chrismas with a Dalek (nor as good Christmas song), but it ought to be heard at least once...
