  • Mary Shaw

    all great!! but Little St Nick alway a favorite of mine!!!!

  • Phil Miglioratti

    Glad to see Little Saint Nick in the Top 5 … You don’t have to be a surf music fan to also enjoy their Merry Christmas Baby ( a fun rocker) and Man With All The Toys (Brian Wilson did a cover of his Beach Boys’ version and added a coda that makes it a true Christmas tune!)

  • Carl Parente

    Pretty interesting, they sure spanned the decades to make this list up. I like it for the most part, even getting some Jewish persausion in there! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good New Year too!!

  • Dan Mariano+

    Can’t believe Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” didn’t make it. The Boss can really butcher a Christmas song.

    Rolling Stones list is bad, realy bad. They no nothing about the greatest Christmas songs that were, a heck of alot more popular than these songs on the list. Wierd Al, Run DMC, Adam Sandler……really??????

  • Chris

    Missing Father Christmas by the Kinks and I Believe In Father Christmas by Greg Lake.

    I did not see “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight”) by the Ramones, any Jackson 5, Bobby Sherman, Brady Bunch, or Partridge Family Christmas songs, or anything off the album “Punk Rock Christmas”. I can keep going on about what wasn’t on there but I’ll just shut up. I liked how the list included the Beach Boys, the Ronettes, Chuck Berry, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Band Aid. Oh also you forgot “2000 Miles” by the Pretenders, (it’s kind of a Christmas song and should be included), “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee, and any Brian Setzer Christmas song. Okay, now I will shut up even though later I will probably remember more Christmas songs that were not on here.
