As it is still early enough in the season not to have been driven completely batty by Christmmas songs, I thought it would be interesting to see what is everyone's favorite holiday song and what version of it.
For more traditional songs I have to go with the Bing Crosby/David Bowie version of "Little Drummer Boy".
For a modern song, as a Springsteen nut, I have to go with the unreleased song "Pilgrim in the Temple of Love" in which he tells the story of meeting Santa Claus in a NJ strip club.
For Christmas Eve services, I have to go with "Silent Night." Things are always so calm after leaving the church that the song resonates and always seems to bring a feeling of calm, so unlike the year I was working in a restaurant that played "Here comes Suzy Snowflake" until I was filled with rage.
