- THIS GIFT – 98 Degrees
- YOU’RE A MEAN ONE MR. GRINCH – Matthew Morrison (Will Scheuster, “Glee”) & K.D. Lang
I’m missing a lot of good ones on my list; however, this is obviously not exhaustive. I’ve downloaded about 280 holiday songs on my iPod, so the music lasts the entire Christmas party and then some.
