Cool, thanks one and all. Some above I've got and some I don't and will add, but SHOUT to Winetarelli, on the Who song. I've got Tommy on vinyl, cd, and digits, but for some reason i never connect that song to my xmas list.
For the hater of xmas music, its cyclical. I hated xmas music too for periods in my life. But, well, I listen to music, my wife likes xmas music, so, I roll with it and make the best of it.
