    I was just listening to Dan Fogelberg's "Same Old Lang Syne" and it brought back some melancholy days gone by, the one that got away, but still great times. What's yours?

    My favorite, too.

    (apparently "+1" is too short of a post!)

    Mine is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" - no particular version, but I am partial to instrumental versions mostly.

    A close second is Elvis' "I'll Be Home For Christmas"

    Some of my favorites are already mentioned, but I'll add Willie Nelson's Pretty Paper.

    Big +1 from me on this one. My all time favorite Christmas song, without a doubt. It is a perfect narrative of a relationship captured in miniature.


    I also really like Sam Phillips and T-Bone Burnett's version of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", but The Pogues song just slays me to this day.
