    Ooh there are so many fab Christmas songs, I've made countless festive tapes and CDs over the years...if you want the "happy" (or at least lively!) ones for a College CD then some I'd suggest are:

    The Pogues and Kirsty McColl - Fairytale of New York
    The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
    Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas
    The Beach Boys - Little St Nick
    Louis Armstrong - Cool Yule
    Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band - Merry Christmas Baby
    Springsteen again - Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
    Brenda Lee - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree
    Run DMC - Christmas in Hollis
    Elton John - Step into Christmas
    Paul McCartney - A Wonderful Christmas Time
    Shakin' Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone

    Others I'd just recommend in general (although they mightn't be popular on the college CD player) are:

    The Eagles - Please Come Home For Christmas
    Nat King Cole - O Holy Night
    Jona Lewie - Stop the Cavalry
    Johnny Mathis - When a Child is Born
    The Kinks - Father Christmas

    Of course, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the obligatory hammering of Slade's (So here it is) Merry Christmas Everybody and Wizzard, I Wish it Could be Xmas Everyday.

    The spaceman came travelling one. I think it is by Chris De Burgh.

    just go on to some of the internet radio sites like shoutcast.com and type in christmas you'll get entire stations devoted to playing xmas songs.

    Fab? Christmas songs? Surely a contradiction in terms.
