** Followed up a year later with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0NXY89WsxY Carol of The Turrets]]. How many Christmas songs can you think of that talk about neurotoxin and GLaDOS?

** Many cover versions of this song exist from the traditional (Michael Bublé and The Crystals) to the good-time groovy (The Jackson 5, and particularly Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - listen for the sax solo!)

* Many people don't realize this, but Music/{{Outkast}}'s debut single "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFofKGKlWo4Player's Ball]]" is actually a Christmas song, released on their record label's holiday compilation ''A [=LaFace=] Family Christmas''. The video doesn't show it, but the lyrics make a few scant references to Christmas in the South.

Trivia: If you listen closely, you may notice that many supposed "Christmas" carols have nothing to do with Christmas at all. "Jingle Bells," "Jingle Bell Rock," "Winter Wonderland," and "Baby It's Cold Outside" are technically just songs about winter that never mention any holidays therein. But after many many many years of PopCulturalOsmosis ("Jingle Bells" was written in '''1857'''), these songs will forever be tied to Christmas even in places where it doesn't snow in December.

''[[SincerityMode Nevertheless]]'', everyone's got an album that they lovingly pull out from the bottom of the CD cabinet when December rolls around. Despite all the cheap, irritating, and soulless renditions (and re-renditions, and re-re-renditions ''ad nauseam'') to be heard all over the place during the holiday season, the [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth original simple melodies]] are still there, just waiting to be heard and to remind us why these songs really ''are'' merry and bright. And for those who ''really'' like this stuff, at least one radio station in almost every town goes to [[NetworkDecay all Christmas music all the time on December 1st if not before]].

In other words, when done right, these are still indisputably SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic.

Trivia note: At the end of UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, as the North Vietnamese Army reached the outskirts of Saigon, the American Forces Radio Service had to alert Americans in the area without panicking the local populace, all while in the process of smashing their equipment and recordings. As one Vietnam vet put it, he knew the end was near when AFRS began playing Music/BingCrosby singing "Film/WhiteChristmas" in April.
