I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Bing Crosby Himself - the original.
The best. Every Mom's favourite.

Santa and the Reindeer (the cartoon version)

The Drifters
Bill Pinkney's Original Drifters rendition of "White Christmas" made famous by the movie "Home Alone". [NOTE : It's also the version that inspired the cartoon version above.]

Frank Sinatra - The Mob version.

Diana Krall - I'm dreaming of a soft, jazzy, laid back white Christmas

Dean Martin - Dreaming of a White Rat Pack Christmas

Billy Idol - Bing Crosby with a nipple ring...

Michael Bolton and Placido Domingo

Taylor Swift (gag-me-with-a-spoon country version)


Something else besides White Christmas:

Little Drummer Boy by Pentatonix (video, duration 4:14)

All I Want for Christmas Is You: Mariah Carey and Jimmy Fallon get their Christmas groove on! (video, duration 3:36)
Watch for the scene-stealing little chorus girls (especially the second from the left - what a cutie!) who pop up starting at 1:03.

The 20 Worst Christmas Songs Ever
- includes "All I Want For Christmas Is You" --- the sexed-up version by Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber, wherein Mariah Carey gets all flirty with the Bieber-boy. Turns out that Carey is six years older than Bieber's own mother. Ooooooh, Babeeee....

Blue Christmas - by Porky Pig

Jingle Cats

Jingle Dogs

So This Is Christmas - by John Lennon

A Holiday Wish - A Dialogue by Steve Martin
(audio only, but it's a Steve Martin classic!)
