    During the holiday season I'm not real big into the traditional Christmas songs such as Jingle Bells, Deck The Halls, Silent Night, Silver Bells, White Christmas, etc., except for a few as performed by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I'm more into the non-traditional rock 'n' roll based Christmas songs, such as Happy Xmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon, Step Into Christmas by Elton John, Do They Know It's Christmas/Feed The World by Band Aid, Father Christmas by The Kinks, Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses, Christmas Is The Time To Say "I Love You" by Billy Squier, I Believe In Father Christmas by Greg Lake and Christmas Time by Bryan Adams. What are your favorite non-traditional Christmas tunes? Which do you prefer...traditional or non-traditional Christmas songs/carols?

      Unfortunately I gave a bunch of examples in other threads. So I will only comment that I enjoy both, although I am very picky about which versions of traditional songs I like. For example, I can only listen to "Oh Christmas Tree/Oh Tannenbaum" if it is sung by Nat King Cole. Damn that man can sing in German!

        I'm still a big fan of Bob and Doug McKenzie's "12 Days of Christmas" cuz you can't have enough back bacon for the holidays.

        Just the song this time...
