'We Need a Little Christmas'
An impossibly cheery group of female singers raise their voices high in search of the holiday spirit.
'All I Want for Christmas Is You'
You may hear this one at the mall this shopping season -- it's the top-selling holiday ringtone of all time.
'The First Noel'
Sinatra's commanding voice adds a special gravitas to a poor shepherd's account of the first Christmas.
'Silver and Gold'

An out-of-nowhere British talent-show sensation sets her amazing voice to this beautifully tranquil classic.

'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'
Don't get put off by the early demands for figgy pudding, Bing gets to the verse you know and love soon enough.
'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen'
A singing "King" uses his famous soft baritone to herald the joyous arrival of another kind of King.
'Joy to the World'
Really, this song is about the second coming, not Christmas, but with all those triumphant horns it's pretty easy to get swept up in the festive spirit.
'Deck the Halls'
Christmas songwriting 101: If you run out of words, just keep repeating something catchy, like "Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la-la" (works great for us writers, too!)
'Away in a Manger'
No crib for a bed, huh? We know they were traveling, but didn't anybody tell them about Pack 'n Plays?

Nat sings in exultation, along with an angelic choir, for the chance to come and adore the new Baby Jesus.

'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'
Admit it, you totally believed this story when you were a kid. If, by some miracle, the next crop of GPS-using infants buy into this, too, let's keep playing along.
'Jingle Bell Rock'
OK, let's get a little rock 'n' roll in here! After all, hanging with your family should be fun, right? Right?!
'(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays'
If you're lucky enough to have your whole family together for Christmas, please remember how blessed you are, even if Uncle Phil is hogging the remote control.
