    Not just your favorite Christmas tune - I want to know the specific versions of Christmas songs without which Christmas is not quite the same for you. Here are mine:

    "O Tannenbaum" and "Christmas Time Is Here" - The Vince Guaraldi Trio

    "Do You Hear What I Hear" - Johnny Mathis

    "Silent Night" and "Rudolph" - Temptations

    "Sleigh Ride" - Boston Pops

    "Boot-Off (aka Rudolph)" - Bootsy Collins

    There are many others, but these are the main ones for me. What are yours?

    James Jamerson on Smokey Robinson and the Miracles Jingle Bells. Best Christmas bassline ever.
