Cool Christmas Tunes!

OK, so I kinda sorta borrowed the idea from a post in Mike Sterling's Progressive Ruin, but I've been playing tons of Christmas MP3s (burned from CDs for my own listening pleasure. Feel free to add your own recommendations! Make it a meme! Or something

Twelve Days of Christmas - Bob & Doug Mackenzie
Give the Jew Girl Toys - Sarah Silverman*
Channukah Song - Adam Sandler*
Back Door Santa - Clarence Carter
Jesus Christ - Big Star
Nutcracker Suite - Beavis & Butthead
Jingle Bells - Simpsons (featuring Robert Goulet)**
Santa Claus - the Sonics
Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight) - Ramones***
Santa's Beard - They Might Be Giants***
Merry Christmas, Baby - Otis Redding
Night at the Opera - the Groucho/Chico "sanity clause" exchange****
There Ain't No Sanity Clause - Damned ****
Zat You Santa Claus - Louis Armstrong
Let it Snow - Dean Martin
The Lonely Jew on Christmas - South Park
2000 Miles - Pretenders

Now, all I need is a copy of Graham Parker's "Christmas is for Mugs", and I'll be happy


*'Cause you gotta show the Hannukah set the love
**You haven't lived until you've heard Mr. Goulet croon, "Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg; Batmobile broke a wheel, Joker got away"
***Mike had these on his list, too
****Marx first, then Damned - Killer combination, dude

Some of the songs that you have on your list that weren't on my CD are on pal Dorian's own in-store discs. "Christmas with The Devil" is one, and I wish I had that on my own disc. Maybe I can (ahem) "borrow" it from Dor.

What's the Sarah Silverman track? Is it a comedy routine or an actual song?
