I'm creating a nice little playlist of christmas songs as done by classic rock musicians.

Here's what I've got so far:

"Happy Xmas (War Is Over)"- John Lennon

"Wonderful Christmastime"- Paul McCartney

"Thank God It's Christmas"- Queen

"Step Into Christmas"- Elton John

"Christmas Time (Is Here Again)"- The Beatles

"Please Come Home For Christmas"- The Eagles

"Santa Claus Is Coming To Town"- Bruce Springsteen

"The Christmas Song"- Chicago

"Christmas Must Be Tonight"- The Band

"Winterlude"- Bob Dylan

"Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"- U2

"Christmas All Over Again"- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

"I Believe In Father Christmas"- ELP

Any other suggestions?

I've never heard it, only heard about it:

Ten years ago, MCA released a 3 track CD Jimi Hendrix: Merry Christmas And Happy New Year, a medley of Holiday standards Hendrix recorded in 1969 goofing with drummer Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox.

Happy Holiday! ~ Andy Williams

Happy holiday

Happy holiday

(Happy holidays)

While the merry bells keep ringing

Happy holiday to you

(Happy holiday)

( Happy holiday)

It’s the holiday season

And Santa Claus is comin’ round

The Christmas snow is white on the ground

When old Santa gets in to town

He’ll be comin’ down the chimney down

(He’ll be comin’ down the chimney down)

It’s the holiday season

And Santa Claus has got a toy

for every good girl and good little boy

Santa’s a great big bundle of joy

when he’s comin’ down the chimney down

(when he’s comin down the chimney down)

He’ll have a big fat pack on his back

And lots of goodies for you and for me

So leave a peppermint stick for old Saint Nick

Hanging on the Christmas tree

It’s the holiday season

(the holiday season)

So hoopdi doo and dickory dock

And don’t forget to hang up your sock

Cause just exactly at 12 o’clock

He’ll be comin’ down the chimney down

(He’ll be comin’ down the chimney down)

He’ll have a big fat pack upon his back

(Yea)

And lots of goodies for you and for me

So leave a peppermint stick for old St. Nick

Hanging on the Christmas tree

It’s the holiday season

(the holiday Season)

So hoopdi doo and dickory dock

And don’t forget to hang up your sock

Cause just exactly at 12 o’clock

He’ll be comin’ down the chimney

comin’ down the chimney

comin’ down the chimney down

(Happy holiday)

Happy holiday

(Happy holiday)

Happy holiday

While the merry bells keep ringing

Happy holiday to you!

(Happy holiday)

(Happy holiday)

(Happy holiday)
