What Are Some Great/Classic Christmas Songs and Artists?

I hear them on the radio all the time, and I'm trying to find some really good/classic ones. But I just have no idea who's made the great ones that seem to get played all the time.

Can people list their favorite Christmas songs and the artist who sings them so I can try and buy certain cd singles or albums, etc.

Thanks.

Off of the top of my head, the following popularized these Christmas songs:

"White Christmas" - Bing Crosby
"The Christmas Song" - Nat King Cole
"Little Saint Nick" - The Beach Boys
"'Zat You, Santa Claus?" - Louis Armstrong
"Jingle Bell Rock" - Wayne Newton
"Sleigh Ride" - Johnny Mathis (unsure about this one)
"Holly Jolly Christmas" - Burl Ives

And probably the best Christmas album ever:

And you have to get You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
