It just wouldn't sound like the holidays without including Bruce Springsteen, and this holiday staple is the oldest Christmas song (1934) on our list of the Top 10 Christmas Songs. Blame it on his rustic voice, the jingle of that sleigh bell or perhaps its that sweet shout out to Clarence Clemons, but Springsteen brings the cookies and the milk to the table with this one. Included in his live set as early as December 1973, it's the Dec. 12, 1975 live version of the song that we hear and cherish the most. Granted, it's overplayed but who cares? It's Christmas and we love our Bruce.

 If this song by John Lennon and Yoko Ono doesn't make you shed a tear at least once in your lifetime, you really are a grinch. This protest song about the Vietnam War has become a Christmas standard. It is based on the 1969 campaign that found John and Yoko renting billboards in major cities proclaiming "WAR IS OVER! (If You Want It) Happy Christmas from John and Yoko." It's produced by Phil Spector and features children from the Harlem Community Choir on backing vocals. It's a song that poses the question "what have we done?" and the lyrics are double-edged in politics and passion. It's painfully honest, yet the message of peace is loud and clear and it's one that we still hope for all these years later.

This one comes straight from the ghosts of Christmas past. Prior to the Silver Bullet Band, when Bob Seger was still recording under the name Bob Seger and the Last Heard. Recorded in 1966, this single was heavily inspired by the James Brown number "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag." Seger bares all here, completely letting loose some soul that can only stem from Detroit. (His version of "The Little Drummer Boy," from the first Very Special Christmas compilation, is also worthy of a mention.)
