WIP*: The Christmas Compilation I Want To Make

I haven't finalized this list or even the order, but someday I want to put all my favorite Christmas or Christmas-related songs in one place. To boot, it would have to include the following songs:

  • The Loud Family, It Wouldn't Be Christmas
  • The Who, Christmas
  • Fuzzy, Christmas
  • The Kinks, Father Christmas
  • John & Yoko, Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
  • Big Star (or Kristin Hersh) (or Teenage Fanclub), Jesus Christ
  • Booker T. & The MG's, Jingle Bells
  • Booker T. & The MG's, Winter Snow
  • Carla Thomas, Gee Whiz It's Christmas
  • Carla Thomas, All I Want For Christmas Is You
  • Chuck Berry, Merry Christmas Baby
  • Alex Chilton, The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
  • Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem, Little Saint Nick
  • U2, Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
  • Bob & Doug McKenzie, Twelve Days Of Christmas
  • Cheech & Chong, Santa and His Old Lady
  • Deborah Holland, It Only Comes Once A Year
  • Homemade Theater, Santa Jaws
  • Dan Fogelberg, Same Old Lang Syne
  • The Moonglows, Hey Santa Claus
  • The O'Jays, Christmas Just Ain't Christmas (Without The One You Love)
  • Tennessee Ernie Ford, The Wassail Song
  • Rufus Thomas, I'll Be Your Santa Baby
Interspersed between would be movie cuts and such. These songs here are songs that I NEED to listen to at least once during the holiday season; how cool to have 'em all in one place?

How about you? What favorite Christmas / Hanukkah / Kwanzaa songs would have to be on your ideal holiday compilation CD?

(*work in progress, of course)
