My general preference in Christmas music is for the classics. My wife hates Mannheim Steamroller, I hate the Rat Pack, and I'm going to become homicidal if I hear Rudolph or Frosty or Mariah Carey.

Anyone have some album recommendations?

Ummm...

Squirrel Nut Zippers - Christmas Caravan

Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics

Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Have Yourself a Meaty Little Christmas

Ha ha. Those are the three that I actually enjoy listening to. I only have a couple more Christmas albums. The Tori Amos one didn't do a lot for me, and I have to admit I haven't listened to Shawn Colvin's all the way through yet.

I'm sure someone else will come along with some better choices.

I downloaded Amazon's 99 Most Essential Christmas Masterpieces for $2. That's 99 tracks for $2. Many classics in there but all played by classical orchestras, choirs, etc. I found it definitely worth the price.

You say classics as in Bing Crosby White Christmas etc.?

For a slightly modern version of some Christmas music my wife and family quite enjoy The Barenaked Ladies Christmas effort Barenaked for the Holidays

We also listen to Lawrence Welk and Reader's Digest - I'll Be Home For Christmas

My favorite Christmas song:

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - Little Drummer boy

Careful if you buy this album because it was only a limited release during that Christmas season otherwise the track on this album was “Oh! Woes Me” which sucked.

Good call on TSO Tom.
