    I always like to update my Christmas songs list with a few new tunes each year. We all know the many classic Christmas tunes. What are your favorite "lesser known" Christmas tunes?

    Here's a few of mine...

    Candy Cane Christmas - Darius Rucker
    Christmas Canon - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
    The Christmas Song - The Ravonettes
    Christmastime - Smashing Pumpkins
    When Christmas Comes To Town - Matthew Hall/Meagan Moore
    Wish List - Neon Trees

    This last one is a bad one (but a classic in our household). I'm embarrassed to even list this one. Oh well...

    Christmas Cash - Fred Figglehorn

    One of my all time favorite songs is The Christmas Song by London After Midnight. :cloud9:

    I also love the Robert Downey Jr. version of River and I like Christmas by The Who.

    Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas) - John Denver, originally, Alan Jackson's version is better.

    The whole CD is just amazing with unusual versions of The River, Christmastime is Here and Silent Night. This is an upbeat one, but most are moody and beautiful.

    All of my favorite Christmas music is not 'popular' stuff.
