Still not on Spotify.
The Payola$, Christmas is Coming:
... which can be found on the CD The Edge of Christmas displayed in the video. It also features Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses and 2000 Miles by the Pretenders, so you know you have to have it ...
Khruangbin - Christmas Time is Here
Not a new song, of course, but a cool spin on a classic.
Almost forgot this great comp: "In The Christmas Groove":
It's worth it for this track alone:
Was about to post this, but thought I should check to see if someone already did. This one means so much to me. Cheers!
I have a soft spot for this one:
Smashing Pumpkins - Christmas Time (1997)
Tremendous pick and that's my favorite song on the album! Always gives me goose bumps.
Somebody else posted another great version of this song. One of my favorite hymns. This is a nice version by Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison. It appears on an earlier Christmas EP and a full on fleshed out Christmas album - Happy Holidays.

Me, playing the "Christmas Song," using some jazz chords on my leccy piano.
It wind my wife up a bit if I start playing it in September.
Excellent tip. Thanks!
Just picked this one up at a thrift shop...great track selection...
I really appreciate all the responses, and I hope suggestions will continue to come in.
For instance, for years now, I've appreciated this acoustic album by Vermont guitarist, Ed Gerhard.
Very excited to learn that there's another Ramsey Lewis Trio Christmas album! Thank you!
Joel Paterson's Hi-Fi Christmas Guitar from 2018 is an outstanding collection of instrumental takes on standards. Very relaxing!
His "Linus & Lucy" is excellent as well.
Hey, somebody left the Christmas music thread open...we're gonna be here 'til Easter! Oh well...
This is about 90% as good as Rob Mathes' earlier recording, only found on Rhino
Records 1995 comp Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas )that includes
The Roches, Dr. John and Nicolette Larson...which, in itself, was a little Christmas
miracle). He's a great composer/producer/performer working in the "spiritual
pop" circles. Hearing it the first time literally stunned me. This version is what
you get when you've had a couple decades to re-assess your first performance.
I was shuffling Holiday songs on apple music and a song from this album came up. It inspired me to grab the CD off the shelf and give it a listen... went for it and it wasn't there. Thought to myself, "oh... I must have it on vinyl then", and went to grab it from my collection... and it wasn't there. For all the people in my life who say "Oh, you have every Christmas album ever made", i find it so funny when at least once a season, I realize there is a classic out there that I just don't have yet. Anyway, I ordered the CD on friday and will be keeping my eye out for the vinyl as I'm digging throughout the season.
This is a lovely song from Mindy Smith's overlooked Christmas album, My Holiday.
It's not even Thanksgiving yet...and we're ALREADY out of suggestions?
Rosie Flores-"Christmasville" One of my favorite albums by the alt-Country singer. Out of print and pricey on Amazon...
Festive offerings from the metal and punk world!

Haven't heard the Mavericks' album yet. (Been meaning to though.) I really loved Raul Malo's solo Christmas album from a few years earlier...
