Topic: Offbeat Christmas Songs
No irreverence intended, but I am always seeking new and interesting songs to sing at Christmas.
I love the traditional standards ( O Holy Night is my favorite). But when I find myself picking and grinning at a marina full of sailors pounding beers,
"Silent Night" and "Deck the Halls" don't seem to cut it. Yes, you can occasionally throw in a old favorite from the traditional list, but something new and different is needed to hold a crowd.
I have come up with "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" http://www.links2love.com/christmas-son … otamus.htm
Also Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas From the Family" is a big hit with jaded sailors

I would like to hear what you guys have come up with for a Christmas music changeup.
Ya'll wanna go down to the Guf?
