fairytale gets my vote too. And probably everyone else's

2nd place goes to John Lennon

Yep, Fairytale (God Rest Kirsty MacColl, and grant justice on the maniac who killed her and nearly her kids as well). Special mention to The Exploited's 'F*** the Mods', which, insofar as it has a tune, is like Jingle Bells...

Plus, for sheer weirdness, Bing and Bowie..

Fairytale in New York all time favourite BUT has to be the pogues and Kirsty

But my second is Mariah Carey All I want for Christmas.
Dont normally like her but love this!!!

Oh and I love the live version Bruce Springsteen and Santa Claus is comin to town!!
But for traditional you can't beat Adeste Fideles

Bit of a sucker for Chrimbo songs if truth be told

Because of Fairytale of New York this is really about second favourites.

For me it's Robert Earl Keen's [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uR9awfpxvLo&feature=related"]Merry Christmas from the Family[/ame]

O Holy Night

and that one about the soldier wahting to return home from World War 2 (i'd appreciate if anybody could tell my what it's called).

Oh and Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea, gets better every year

EDIT: Changed to WW2
