I wanted to find a definitive list of the best Christmas songs to post, but each one seems to have it's own unique twist. Therefore, here's the top 10 ASCAP Christmas songs. Note that they're recordings, not traditional songs, and although the song order might seem right, the artist performing it might not (remember that it's an ASCAP list).

Seems to be the standard variety with Classic Singers.
Love the Let It Snow version by Gloria Estefan, too.
Happy Holidays!
