Rather than double-check to confirm my righteousness, I'll just scold you all for not mentioning "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" by Judy Garland yet. Because it's sort of obviously the greatest Christmas song. Duh.
We cannot discuss "Jingle Bell Rock" without giving props to this video, in which Hall and Oates play a gay couple hosting a Christmas party for their friends, including female impersonator G.E. Smith. Groundbreaking, and very brave of them for 1982.
I'll give you that one, but she gets demerits from me for making a bad song worse. In her version of The Christmas Song, she substitutes "rainbows" for "reindeer". As in, "to see if rainbows really know how to fly". With any Christmas song I cringe when I hear her voice, in anticipation of how she'll screw this one up. But she nails the song you mention, and deserves respect for that.
I think if I had to choose just one carol to sing, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas might be it.
I didn't perceive them as gay, I just thought it was cheesy,
Some of my local favorites were playing for free outside the Corcoran Gallery when who should turn up to play for free as well but John Oates.
Jingle Bell Rock - This is the polar opposite. Has there ever been a bad version of this?
That's kind of an odd duck. Today, it's something of an uplifting family Christmas thought, but when Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin wrote it, it was a rather bitter, sardonic song
