Always looking for more non-traditional Christmas Tunes, but I like to wonder off the beaten path.

Couple of examples:


Absolutely love this gem:

I don't know how to do the whole "imbed a video" thing - but
there is a great version of "Frosty the Snowman" done by Leon Redbone and Dr. John that is just a hoot.

it was on one of those "A Very Special Christmas" albums that were put out in the late 80's and early 90's to raise funds for some charity.

Micky singing "Jesus Christ" on The Monkees' 2018 Christmas record (song originally from Big Star's third album).

Just learned about this one today. This is Louis Armstrong's very last recording.

A few more coming...not all my type or exactly what I'm looking for, but in case anyone else is looking to expand their catalogue.

Not sure if this whole playlist will load, but I'm digging a few off this album, especially track 5 "Secret Santa":

This one was brought to my attention because the Jayhawks covered it fantastically Saturday night at the Palace.
