Offbeat Christmas songs (need 'em fast!)

My husband and I are alternating playing strange or different Christmas songs, and I’m running out of stuff.

I’ve already played:
Fairytale of New York
Father Christmas
I Want an Alien for Christmas

Need stuff that’s on Youtube, and need it fast.

Christmas at Ground Zero-Weird Al

Mary by Lou Barlow

Jonathan Coulton: Christmas is Interesting and Chiron Beta Prime. No idea what’s going on in those videos, but the songs appear to be the real deals.

No Presents for Christmas by (of all people) King Diamond.

Anything from Bob Dylan’s Christmas In the Heart – yes, THAT Bob Dylan.

(That’s “Must Be Santa” and it is cool and demented too. )

There’s more, just look at the list on the left. And enjoy.

(To his credit, Bob is sincere. And fun.)

Buy the CD if you can; proceeds go to charity.

Merry Bloody Xmas by the Irish Rovers

And in response to spoke-'s post, the sequel to Robert Keen’s christmas song, Happy Holidays Ya’ll

Christmas at KMart by Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band

This is one of my personal favorites…

Twelve Days After Christmas

The weirdest Christmas song of all time? No contest:

Tiny Tim’s “Santa Claus Has Got the AIDS This Year.”
