    What song makes you crank up the volume when it comes on the radio?

    For me, it's one from my childhood - "Mamasita, Donde Esta Santa Claus?" by Augie Rios - a novelty song from the Late '50s. I'll see if I can find a link to the lyrics and an mp3 file for those of you who've never heard it.

    My all time favorite has to be Jose Feliciano, 'Feliz Navidad'. Once I hear it, I'm singing it for days. It's not xmas for me without hearing that song. :)

    I gotta go with the classics sung by Burl Ives. This love goes back to the 1970's holiday cocktail parties with the neighbors my parents would host. They'd load a bunch of holiday vinyl on the big console record player and let it go for hours. My dad mixed martinis he'd let me sneak a sip of just to watch me wince. My mom served up frozen whiskey sours and gave me maraschino cherries after much begging. I'd tip-toe around from table to table sneaking handfuls of bridge mix, choking on the cigarette smoke.

    Good times... :)

    My alter ego did a Top Ten List of Favorite Xmas Songs a coupla years ago - and it still holds for me. The one that I always have to turn up whenever I hear it and which still emotionally gets me: The Pogues, "Fairytale of New York."

    There are many I like that are classic style (sucker for a beautiful a cappella O Holy Night, or even Silent Night, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, I'll Be Home for Christmas), but in the less traditional sense (I'll deviate a smidge for variety)... I'd say

    Pretenders - 2000 Miles
    The Pogues - Fairytale of New York
    Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping

    :)

    My favorite is 'O Holy Night.' My favorite funny Christmas songs are "Dominic the Donkey" and "The Drunk Lady."

    Oh, goody. Someone else knows about Dominic. I love that one.

    My real favorite, though, is about "Snoopy and the Red Barron." You just get the idea of it crossing cultural lines during a war. It's so cool.

    For singing, I like "O Holy Night." I used to be able to do nice descant part at the end, back when I was younger. I can still almost do it, but almost don't do it, if you get my meaning.

    I like this song in small doses *its cute too* (might annoy some people hahahaha)

    You may be thinking of the song "The Twelve Pains Of Christmas" by Bob Rivers. But it sure isn't new - came out in 1987!
    Ric

    The first thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Is finding a Christmas tree

    The second thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The third thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Hangovers
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The fourth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Sending Christmas cards
    Hangovers
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The fifth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Five months of bills
    Sending Christmas cards
    Hangovers
    Rigging up the lights
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The sixth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills!
    Oh, I hate those Christmas cards!
    Hangovers
    Rigging up these lights!
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The seventh thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    The Salvation Army
    Facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills!
    Sending Christmas cards
    Oh, geez!
    I'm tryin' to rig up these lights!
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The eighth thing at Christmas that such a pain to me
    I WANNA TRANSFORMER FOR CHRISTMAS
    Charities,
    And whataya mean "YOUR in-laws"
    Five months of bills!
    Oh, making out these cards
    Honey, get me a beer, huh?
    What, we have no extension cords?
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The ninth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
    Finding parking spaces
    DADDY, I WANT SOME CANDY!!!!
    Donations!
    Facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills!
    Writing out those Christmas cards
    Hangovers!
    Now why the hell are they blinking?!?!?
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The tenth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me:
    Batteries Not Included
    No parking spaces
    BUY ME SOMETHIN'
    Get a job, ya bum!
    Oh, facing my in-laws
    Five months of bills
    Yo-ho, sending Christmas cards
    Oh, geez, look at this!
    One light goes out, they ALL go out
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The eleventh thing of Christmas that's such a pain to me:
    Stale TV specials
    Batteries Not Included
    No parking spaces
    DAD, I GOTTA GO TA BATHROOM!!
    Charities!
    She's a witch...I hate her!
    Five months of bills!
    Oh, I don't even KNOW half these people!
    Oh, who's got the toilet paper, huh?
    Get a flashlight...I blew a fuse!!
    And finding a Christmas tree

    The twelfth thing of Christmas that's such a pain to me:
    Singing Christmas carols
    Stale TV specials
    Batteries Not Included
    No parking?
    WAAAAAAAAAAH! WAAAAAAAAAAH!
    Charities
    Gotta make 'em dinner
    Five months of bills
    I'm not sendin' them this year, that's it
    Shut up, you
    FINE! YOU'RE SO SMART, YOU RIG UP THE LIGHTS
    And finding a Christmas tree

    Steve Morse's rendition of "Joy to the World," from the Merry Axemas album. It's a bunch of prog rockers playing Christmas songs.

    And no one paid for Christmas cheer?

    The child or the store?"

    Any song sung solemnly and simply is good for me, but I love "Hosanna, filio David". I'm a sucker for Gregorian Chants.

    For a silly song, it's a tie between Spike Jones' "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" and Bob and Doug McKenzie's rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"

    Good day and welcome to Day Five...
