I'm looking for some new ones for this year.

my faves are the Elvis Presley ones. I also have Motown, Johnny Cash, the Punk Rock one, Chipmunks, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Charlie Brown Christmas (probably the best one ever, methinks)...

I love me some Bing Crosby and he's really the only one I can tolerate doing Christmas songs. Him and Dean Martin anyway.

I lied. Now that I actually take time to think about it Nat King Cole and Sinatra are also great. I'm only thinking of modern Christmas music from artists that I like even that just don't sound right.

"A Charlie Brown Christmas", easily. Vince Guaraldi's music is genius.

Yeah, Charlie Brown's pretty un-toppable.

I just found out, last night, that The Ventures had recorded a Christmas album. Haven't heard it, yet, but I can't imagine it being anything other than incredible. The Ventures' "In Space" is one of my top 5 albums of all time.

Also, though I was completely against the idea when I heard about it, the few bits I've heard from Dylan's new Christmas album haven't sounded bad, at all. Kind of a Cajun Christmas vibe.

And I remember The Muppets & John Denver had a collaborative Christmas album, years and years ago. Used to get a lot of seasonal play around the house when I was growing up. Stone cold classic. (and, apparently, viewable in its entirety here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoBM5S0I3sc)
