Ha! I heard the Chipmunk's song earlier this afternoon. Love the Trans-Siberian one, too. ;)

Alice, it's a rare-ish b-side, which is on her boxed set. I have no idea if it's available anywhere else!

We own The Chipmunks Christmas DVD. I hear that song CONSTANTLY. Great list there Dayle.
I know that version of "All I want" is on YouTube.

I keep hearing about TSO and figure I need to see about catching them next year if they're in our area. I really enjoy Manheim Steamroller but I haven't heard any of the TSO stuff yet.

Take off, eh! I love, love, love Bob & Doug McKenzie's 12 Days of Christmas (and a beer...)

Thanks for a fun list, Dayle!

No - I don't hate ya - it's actually on my iPod.

What I DON'T have are the Styx tunes - I can't find them anywhere - HELP DAYLE HELP!!

TSO is my favourite Xmas music since I discovered them five years ago. Saw them in Toronto this year - they were simply amazing!!

When I plug in my iphone i get the page about registering my iphone but then it cuts off, the only button there is the 'Register Later' button. I tried making the screen bigger but it dosen't work. I tried restarting my computer and I even re-installed itunes. Nothing is working. Can anyone help?
