          I really like "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas." It's light and fast and witty, both lyrically and musically. I do it a fair bit faster than Bing does--makes the bridge a real adventure.

            should I set up a Xmas Song Exchange sticky thread?

              maybe

              or just a general songbook exchange sticky...? I have a couple of other books. I could post my rock book as a starter.

                I just pulled out Merle Haggard's "If We Make It Through December' again this year. I also wrote a song many years ago called 'Take Me Home For Christmas'. The lyrics are as suggestive as the name implies, but it's still kind of cute. I do it some, mostly upon request. People around here usually don't come to the bar to hear Christmas songs. That's too bad, cause I kind of like them. HO HO HO!!

                  Great song. Never thought of it as a Christmas song even though "Daddy can't afford no Christmas cheer" is a hint. Maybe it's the mood.

                  Maybe we can include more 'winter-themed' songs. Like "Nine Below Zero" or "Snow Blind Friend" or "Song for a Winters Night" or "Cold Cold Heart" or "The Frozen Logger."

                        was wasting time today going through the 189 Christmas songs I have in iTunes. I compiled two lists of 'interesting' songs.

                        One is cool stuff:

                        At the Christmas Ball Bessie Smith
                        Child's Christmas In Wales John Cale
                        Christmas In Jail Leroy Carr
                        Cool Yule Louis Armstrong
                        Santa Clause Likes Rich Kids Better Young & Sexy
                        'Zat You, Santa Claus? Louis Armstrong
                        Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me) Elvis Presley
                        Santa Claus Is Back In Town Elvis Presley
                        Swinging Them Jingle Bells Fats Waller
                        Boogie Woogie Santa Claus Pattie Page

                        and one is awful stuff:

                        Christmas Carols By the Old Corral Tex Ritter
                        Christy Christmas Brenda Lee

                        I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus Brenda Lee
                        The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot Vera Lynn

                            Here's two that are novel and (to me) very very catchy. Stumbled across them today by accident. The band(s) is uncredited from a compilation of 1950s Bahamian music.

                            Jolly Junkanoo (Boxing Day)
                            Johnny Cake
