Hey Paul, I’d rather hear Bob Seger’s “Little Drummer Boy” than John Lennon’s “So This is Christmas” or anything from Manheim Steamroller.

Here are the pop Christmas tunes that spend the most time in my CD player this time of year:

“Father Christmas” by The Kinks.

“Is That You, Santa Claus?” by Louis Armstrong.

“Good King Wenceslas”, “Santa Claus, Come Straight to the Ghetto”, and “Mr. Grinch” by Mojo Nixon.

“‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Wynton Marsalis.

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Diana Krall.

“Linus and Lucy” by Vince Guaraldi

“Merry Jingle” by The Greedies

“Merry Christmas” by The Ramones
