What is your favorite holiday carol or song?

My favorite funny Christmas song is "Chiron Beta Prime" by Jonathan Coulton.

My favorite serious Christmas song is "Thanks for Christmas" by XTC, recording under the pseudonym "The Three Wise Men".

Although really, in December, when I'm out somewhere eating lunch, my absolute favorite songs are not Christmas songs; they're anything that's a break from the relentless Christmas-holiday-jingle-bells-Santa-Rudolph-ad-nauseam public soundtrack.

My favorite to sing: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" because I do some bluesy riffs on this bittersweet tune

Favorite to hear: It's a toss-up between dogs barking "Jingle Bells" and Da Yoopers' "Rusty Chevrolet", neither of which I have heard yet this year.

It's not really Christmas-y, but I have to go with "Gondola no Uta," the sad song from the old Kurosawa movie 'Ikiru'.
