 I might actually tolerate most christmas music this season since my boss had a total meltdown and tearily rescinded her constant christmas decleration...

From now through Christmas, we're pleased to offer up the WOXY HOLIDAY MIXER! This unique 24/7 collection of seasonal tunes is filled with vintage renditions of your holiday favorites by modern rockers from around the globe. We have a little bit of something for everyone with new music this year from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Aimee Mann, Over The Rhine, and The Teenage Prayers. If you stick around long enough, you'll probably hear some irreverent selections from "A John Waters Christmas" and Spinal Tap but we've balanced them out with some classic tracks from Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and James Brown among others. To round things out a little more, we've also included some tunes about winter, snow falling, and the month of December because we know you can only hear "Jingle Bells" so many times...

I have nothing against the Pogues, but I prefer the Stars' version of "Fairytale of New York".
 
 I'll second Joni Mitchell's "River". My all-time favorite Christmastime song.
 
 Another great (and very underrated) Christmas song is a Timbuk 3 song called "All I Want for Christmas Is World Peace" that was initially released on an IRS Records Christmas compilation. Jackson Browne and Bruce Cockburn did a great cover of it in a live performance that showed up on BitTorrent a couple years ago under a compilation torrent named "Santa's Boots."

There are some songs that are sacred and should never be covered....Fairy Tale Of New York is one of those songs.

I most look forward to hearing . . .
 
 John Lennon - Happy Xmas
 Keith Richards - Run Run Rudolph
 
 
 And I like Mariah Carey's video for All I Want For Christmas Is You.
 
 Spent last christmas (i gave you my heart) eve at the Hard Rock in Vegas with my bretheren left-handed jews (I think we made up 80% of the casino - other than the absolutely miserable staff who all wanted to be home) and they played the same 10 or so songs on continuous loop (Wham, Elton, McCartney, Mellencamp, Lennon, Richards, Jovi, Waitresses, Run-DMC, a few others) which I heard for like 15 hours of the day.  That was like a wicked psychological test . . . that I failed.
