The Shit List: Top 10 Christmas Tunes By Pop Artists, Part 2

Here is the second and final installment of our Top 10 favorite Christmas tunes by pop acts...

Material Issue "Merry Christmas Will Do"

Okay, we're not gonna lie to you, Material Issue remains a band very dear to our hearts and this acoustic performance of "Merry Christmas Will Do" is one of those ultra-rare clips that makes you glad that YouTube exists. Having said that, the studio version of this tune KICKS ASS.

Pet Shop Boys "It Doesn't Often Snow At Christmas"

After being released as a fan-club only single in 1997 and becoming one of those songs you might hear on the radio but have not a snow ball's chance in actually buying, the Boys did the right thing and officially released the song in 2009.

Of course, the version they released was a newly recorded version, but, hey, that's just as cool.

Cheap Trick "Come On Christmas"

Some may find it cheesy for Cheap Trick to take one of their classic tunes ("Come On Come On") and give it the full Christmas treatment, but it's always good to have a Cheap Trick tune to add to your holiday playlist. Bless you, boys!

R.E.M. "Christmas Griping"

Back in the day, R.E.M.'s "fan club only" singles were some of our most cherished Christmas arrivals. You never knew what awaited you when their yearly gift would show up in your mail box. This one from 1991 remains one of our favorites.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers "Christmas All Over Again"

It just isn't officially the holiday season until we hear this song. Petty, of course, is a national treasure and this song is just one of those upbeat, feel-good Christmas songs that warms our heart. Enjoy!
