Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas...

Gretchen, stop trying to make fetch happen! It's not going to happen!

So... have you forgiven me for taking away your Christmas spirit with some of the worst offenders in the history of music? No? Well... this is sufficiently awkward. Maybe you'll reconsider after listening to some of the best songs that will get you into the spirit of the season. Like I said yesterday, I'm not a Christmas hater, and here's some Xmas tunes that always bring a smile to my dial... enjoy!

Joni Mitchell - River

It's kind of like 'Jingle Bells' in the piano tune. However, unlike 'Jingle Bells,' it's good! 

Glee - Baby It's Cold Outside

Yes, the Glee version was very good... get out of my face about it. But... Zooey Deschanel is better than Glee. If Disney weren't evil and blocking people from sharing the video, I'd have Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone's version from Elf.

Mean Girls - Jingle Bell Rock

Because nothing says Christmas like skanks. Nothing. Oh Lindsay... you had so much potential. 

The Carpenters - Merry Christmas Darling

Oh Karen... you had so much potential. Wait, you realised yours. Kudos.

Billy Mack - Christmas Is All Around

It's like Hilary Duff's cover of 'Last Christmas;' equal parts hilarious and disturbing. This time though, it's in a good way.

Olivia Olson - All I Want For Christmas Is You

Tough break, Mariah. Trumped by a minor. Argh, now I must watch Love, Actually.

Brenda Lee - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

Apparently most of my 'good' Christmas songs have been in awesome Christmas movies. Like 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' which was in Home Alone. Don't worry, I know it's a lot older than Home Alone. A LOT older.

Pearl Jam - Let Me Sleep (It's Christmas Time)

Billy Corgan, take note... this is how you do a Christmas song.

Frank Sinatra - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

I don't know why, but I think 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' is one of the saddest songs of all time. And you should know by now how much I love sad songs.

The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York

There's a reason why it re-enters the UK charts each and every year...

And there you have it boys and girls. If that's not enough to bring back your Christmas spirit (which I probably took away from you yesterday - ironic twist!), then I don't know what will. Anywho... happy holidays kids!
