Alternative Christmas songs

    Or, songs you are not likely to hear on the radio, for reasons that will become apparent.

    First on my list has to be "Christmas card from a hooker in Minneapolis" by Tom Waits. A tremendously atmospheric song that you probably wouldn't associate with Christmas.

    "Don't shoot me Santa" by The Killers is well known, however "The cowboy's Christmas ball" less so. Very tongue in cheek, though festive.

    Finally, I stumbled across "Rednecks 12 days of Christmas". One word - painful.

    Any more out there?

    Please Daddy (don't get drunk this Christmas) by John Denver. Real song I swear

    One the late G.Ryan used always play through the month of December. A few in the office used hate when it came on, so much so the radio was nearly turned off on a few occasions. :D

    Tim wheeler from Ash and Emmy the great had a fantastic Christmas album a few years ago, don't think it's well known but has some great songs on it.

    The Waitress Christmas wrapping - heard it for the first time years ago on Phantom FM and it really makes me miss home at Christmas.
