Everyone has those special songs that they wait all year to listen to at Christmas time. There are the Bing Crosby classics and the flashy Mariah Carey ballads; but my Christmas just wouldn't be complete without this:
This album has been a staple in my family since the year of it's release in 1989. My first Christmas memories are of listening to this cd and dancing around the kitchen with my mom and dad. Just look at that track list; it's stellar.

2. Do They Know It's Christmas? - Band Aid
3. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday - Roy Wood
4. Merry Xmas Everybody - Slade

Now you know. When I think "Christmas," I think "synthesizer".
For a REALLY odd christmas, I recommend tracks 9 and 12.
My brother Jeremy's favorite Christmas song is track 13.
And I'm quite partial to track 3.
