"Oh Holy Night" never fails to stir my soul. Mel Torme's inspired "The Christmas Song" ("Chestnuts roasting on an open fire....") is great no matter who sings it, but I especially like Nat King Cole's version.

On the upbeat side, the Ronette's "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town" and "Sleigh Ride" (Spector's Wall-of-Sound goes good with Christmas.) and "Merry Christmas, Baby" as performed by Bruce Springsteen.

I too, want to publicly thank Unckie Joe for sending me the 12 days of Christmas music. Neat stuff, Joe!

I agree with Ron, "Sleigh Ride" and "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town" are on top of my hit-parade. With "Run, Rudolph, Run".

Of course, I also must say "Thank you, Uncle Joe!!! This year, Christmas sounds better thanks to you" :bow: :bow: :bow:

I like 'Merry Xmas Everybody' by Slade,

'Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)' by The Ramones

'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree' by Brenda Lee

'Run Rudolph Run' by Chuck Berry

'Jinglebell Rock' by Bill Haley

My mum loves 'O Holy Night' by Mario Lanza.

I hate all those songs that are about snow, or open fires or white Christmases because that stuff is unimaginable in December here and I can't relate.

From The Nightmare Before Christmas

Kidnap the Sandy Claws

LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL

Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws?

LOCK

I wanna do it!

BARREL

Let's draw straws!

SHOCK

Jack said we should work together

Three of a kind

LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL

Birds of a feather

Now and forever!

Wheeee!

La, la, la, la, la

Kidnap the Sandy Claws, lock him up real tight

Throw away the key and then

Turn off all the lights!

SHOCK

First, we're going to set some bait

Inside a nasty trap and wait

When he comes a-sniffing we will

Snap the trap and close the gate!

LOCK

Wait! I've got a better plan

To catch this big red lobster man

Let's pop him in a boiling pot

And when he's done we'll butter him up!

LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL

Kidnap the Sandy Claws

Throw him in a box

Bury him for ninety years

Then see if he talks

SHOCK

Then Mr. Oogie Boogie Man

Can take the whole thing over then

He'll be so pleased, I do declare

That he will cook him rare!

LOCK,SHOCK, AND BARREL

Wheeee!

LOCK

I say that we take a cannon

Aim it at his door

And then

knock three times

And when he answers

Sandy Claws will be no more!

SHOCK

You're so stupid, think now

lf we blow him up to smithereens

We may lose some pieces

And then Jack will beat us black and green!

LOCK,SHOCK, AND BARREL

Kidnap the Sandy Claws

Tie him in a bag

Throw him in the ocean

Then, see if he is sad

LOCK AND SHOCK

Because Mr. Oogie Boogie is the meanest guy around

If I were on his Boogie list, I'd get out of town

BARREL

He'll be so pleased by our success

That he'll reward us too, I bet!

LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL

Perhaps he'll make his special brew

Of snake and spider stew!

Ummm!

We're his little henchmen and

We take our job with pride

We do our best to please him

And stay on his good side!

SHOCK

I wish my cohorts weren't so dumb

BARREL

I'm not the dumb one

LOCK

You're no fun

SHOCK

Shut up!

LOCK

Make me!

SHOCK

I've got something, listen now

This one is real good, you'll see

We'll send a present to his door

Upon there'll be a note to read

Now, in the box we'll wait and hide

Until his curiosity entices him to look inside

BARREL

And then we'll have him

One, two, three!

LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL

Kidnap the Sandy Claws, beat him with a stick

Lock him up for ninety years, see what makes him tick!

Kidnap the Sandy Claws, chop him into bits

Mr. Oogie Boogie is sure to get his kicks

Kidnap the Sandy Claws, see what we will see

Lock him in a cage and then, throw away the key!
