    I like the version of Silent Night that Foster the People sang on the Alt Nation Appreciation concert…Coldplay or The Pretenders Have yourself a merry little Christmas

  4. Eddie says:

    Oh, wow – ya gotta know this is the best Christmas song EVER: “I Killed Santa” by Wes Johnson and his crew! It’s hi-larious and sticks in your head as it makes you dance down the street. Check it here if you haven’t already heard it:

    “I Killed Santa” gets my vote. Easy one.

    The Whirling Dervishes “You’re a Mean One Mr.Grinch” is a ROCKIN’ Christmas song. I first heard it here, my favorite station of all time! Oh, how I missed you HFS, I have been thristy for a good alternative rock station since you left. You are my musical oasis, thanks for coming back.
