Just a few off the top of my head:

Chuck Berry - Run Rudolph Run --> YouTube Video
The Kinks - Father Christmas --> YouTube Video
Elton John - Step Into Christmas
The Who - Christmas
Pretenders – 2000 Miles
John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

There is a ton of them once you think about it.

It's just not Christmas until I hear the Eagles "Please Come Home For Christmas."

Also, "Do They Know It's Christmas." I always wonder if the British pop stars understood that the starving Ethiopians didn't know it was Christmas not because they were malnourished, but merely because they weren't Christians and didn't celebrate the holidays anyway.

"And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime..." Really? Is there ever snow in Africa at Christmas, or any other time? It's not just because they're poor.

Would you count Trans-Siberian Orchestra in this category? If so, Wizards in Winter and Christmas Eve Sarajevo are good.

^No!

We're talking rock-n-roll here.

Edit: Well, OK...maybe.

Well . . . I know this is your thread, Boss302 , but Trans-Siberian Orchestra is Rock & Roll -- albeit progressive rock.

They are not my proverbial "cup of tea", but they at least deserve mention for having Jon Oliva -- lead vocalist of the brilliant + underrated 1980s Metal band Savatage, as a member


BTW -- here is the track listing of a CD-R Christmas mix compiled by your's truly that I have been playing at work lately:



1. SINGING DOGS -- Jingle Bells
2. CHUCK BERRY -- Run Rudolph Run
3. SURFARIS -- A Surfer's Christmas List
4. CHEECH & CHONG -- Santa Claus And His Old Lady
5. SLADE -- Merry Xmas Everybody
6. RANKIN/BASS -- Snow Miser (from The Year Without A Santa Claus)
7. RANKIN/BASS -- Heat Miser (from The Year Without A Santa Claus)
8. ANGEL -- The Christmas Song
9. KINKS -- Father Christmas
10. THE NIGHTMARE -- Riverbottom Nightmare Band (from Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas)
11. HOBBIT -- The Christmas Song
12. BAD NEWS -- Cashing In On Christmas
13. SPINAL TAP -- Christmas With The Devil
14. JINGLE CATS -- Up On The House-Top
15. CHEAP TRICK -- Come On Christmas

How does Jon Oliva know which version of TSO to tour with? They have several versions playing multiple venues at the same time. In my mind, they are not even a group, but rather a conceptual show.
