Hmmm
imwalrus just sent me email with a question ... I thought I would toss it out here (and FB) for folks to play with

What is your favorite non-traditional Christmas song?

Mine is easy, Christmas At Ground Zero - Weird Al Yankovic.

John Lennon

There is a John Lennon Christmas song that may be just called, "So This is Christmas." I think it entered the mainstream, though, however inadvertently, when some female vocalist (? Carly Simon?) included it on a Christmas album. I will say, though, that I also like Christmas at Ground Zero.

I heard that every year on the radio, growing up. (over 40). I guess I never realized it *wasn't* mainstream.

"Red Christmas." They played it on Dr. D, years ago, but I haven't heard the good Doc in ages.

Nope, try Elmo & Patsy. The flip side of the 45 had the song, "Percy, the Puny Poinsetta".

The Irish Rovers did it as well. Elmo & Patsy did the version best known in the mainstream, the Rovers did the version best known in other circles.

any of the highly offensive and crude holiday songs by Kevin "bloody" Wilson sample his new xmas album on itunes, you'll be in for a treat - don't do it at work or in front of the kids....
