Somethin' About Christmas Time - Bryan Adams
Christmas Is The Time To Say I Love You - Billy Squier

Also, any artist who sings classic Christmas songs traditionally, rather than some lame new arrangement they came up with that ruins the song.

Sheesh! Someone is trying to get a date. :D I haven't kept up on your boss relations lately Guess, but don't you get any crap for brown-nosing from your other co-workers?

Back to the point of the thread....I'm pretty much anti-Christmas music. I'm not a scrooge or anything, but when you worked (my HS days) in a store that had MUZAK for four years I don't see how anyone can like the stuff. Eight hour shifts of Frosty sang by every country performer ever to live with the occasional (once every three days) Boy George song to break the monotony. Ugggh!

Yeah, I agree. I thought of it after I burned the disc and I don't want to do it over. She'll have to live with Eartha :p

No kidding?!?!? I just listened to this album last weekend, next time I'll have to listen more closely to see if I can tell it's him. That's funny, he should do that song as an encore sometime (not that I'd ever be at a Bon Jovi concert to hear it though).

If you have the CD, they talk about it in the liner notes. The album was produced by Tony Bongiovi (John's/Jon's) cousin and recorded at his studio. When they needed a young voice, Tony got his 17/18 year old cousin the gig.

Nope. Like I said, I have the ALBUM. Doesn't look like the CD is still in print though. Amazon has a listing, but no purchase option.

Hey, it's kinda ambiguous. I can believe it's a Christmas song if I want.

So there.

Barking Dogs - Jingle Bells
Mr. Garrison - Merry F'ing Christmas

I heard some comedy cut of the 12 days of christmas with the items replaced by a bunch of consumer crap like 'a japanese transistor radio'. It's from the 60's or 70's (I think). I have no idea who does it, but it was pretty cool.
