All I Ever Get for Christmas Rapping

Seven Days of Christmas-y songs: A – Christmas R

All I Ever Get for Christmas Is Blue – Over the Rhine

All I Want for Christmas – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

Auld Lang Syne – Beach Boys

Away in a Manger – Buddy & Julie Miller (I couldn’t find video for them. But this h&w duo’s bittersweet harmonies are to die for. Not as good as the Beach Boys on their best, but better than the BB on, say, Auld Lang Syne)

Baby It’s Cold Outside – Leigh Nash ft/ Gabe Dixon and Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Jordan (ok, I love Leigh’s crystal-like voice. But who compares to the Lady?)

Candy Cane Children – The White Stripes

The Chipmunks Song  (Christmas Don’t Be Late) – The Chipmunks

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Death Cab for Cutie and Mariah Carey

Christmas Day – MxPx

Christmas for Cowboys – Jars of Clay

Christmas in Hollis – Run DMC

Christmas Is – Run DMC

Christmas Is Coming – Vince Guaraldi (this is a pretty faithful rendition, but I’m not sure what’s up with the piano. I also don’t know why this audience of gray hairs wasn’t getting up and shrugging shoulders.)

Christmas Rappin’ – Kurtis Blow
