I don't like most Christmas music. Could be because my nutty wife plays it nonstop from Turkey Day on. Either that or most of it is just plain BAD.
I only listen to a few bands/artists nowadays. Mostly instrumental.
TSO because they are awesome.
Their original songs like First Snow and Appalachian Snowfall are my favorites.
I love the George Winston December album. Beautiful
Mehdi - Christmas Treasures. Old favs done up in with a bit of rhythm and style.
I also like a few of Sarah McLachlans Winter songs:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuTWA6SBupY&ob=av2e
Youtube needs to have a "not live" button or something. Most songs I prefer the album version, and it can be hard to find album versions of TSO songs. I don't want your crappy recorded version.
