  1. Here are mine:

    1. Baby, it’s cold outside – Ray Charles & Betty Carter (You know I LOVE Doris Day, but Ray Charles does it better)

    2. Last Christmas – Wham (It is one of the few actual holiday songs I will sing aloud when I hear it in a store)

    3. Donna & Blitzen – Badly Drawn Boy (from the About a Boy soundtrack)

    4. Cold, Cold Winter – The Pixies Three (not really a holiday song, but I always think of it in the Winter)

    5. 7 o’clock news/Silent Night – Simon & Garfunkel (a bit of a bummer song, hence why it is #5, but hauntingly beautiful)
