Most Under-Played Christmas Songs?

The total opposite of my other thread, this one's dedicated to all the Christmas songs which are sadly absent from the radio these days, for a variety of reasons.

I really want them to start playing Weird Al's "Christmas at Ground Zero" again, but our PC society's too uptight about it. He wrote that over a decade before 9/11, and the "ground zero" term's been around far longer as well.

"Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl (in this country, anyway).

That was my first thought. The Gift of Giving by Bill Whithers is great.

Re: Most Under-Played Christmas Songs?

Not that they ever got played on the radio, but I still love most of the songs from XFM's "It's a Cool, Cool Christmas". It was a charity compilation album released in the UK back in 2000 and I was lucky enough to import a copy while it was still in print. Participants include Grandaddy, Eels, Belle & Sebastian, The Flaming Lips, Snow Patrol, Low and more.

The Christmas station in Chicago plays that regularly.
