    So I'm generally not a Christmas music fan, but my wife and 15 year old daughter won't take no for an answer, so I need to make a list that won't completely suck and drive me to holiday madness.

    To give some context "Father Christmas" by the kinks is probably my favorite. So far I have:

    Father Christmas - kinks
    Blue Christmas - Elvis
    Hard Candy Christmas - Dolly
    If we make it through December - Merle
    Holiday Road - Lindsey Buckingham

    Feel free to add any suggestions, any type of music, just as long as it doesn't suck. Help me out CF, you're my only hope!

    Anything off of Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison's "Happy Holidays" or Leon Redbone's "Christmas Island" would work.
