Song of the Day: 'Joy' by Tracey Thorn

Won't be long before this joins everyone's list of best modern-day Christmas songs.

Great list, especially Numbers 1, 3, 5 and 6. I'd make room for Tracey, "2000 Miles" by the Pretenders, "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl and "25 December" by Everything but the Girl. What about you?

Frank is missing too many of my favorites.
Backdoor Santa- Clarence Carter
Santa Baby - Madonna
Love So Rare - The Jets
This Christmas - Donny Hathaway
Christmas Island - Leon Redbone
Christmas in Hollis - Run DMC
One Little Christmas Tree - Stevie Wonder
Someday at Christmas - Stevie Wonder
Winter Wonderland - The Eurythmics

Some of his misses are really odd (how does he miss Christmas in Hollis?? I don't like rap, per se, but this time the song is telling a funny story. And samples Backdoor Santa.)

Already my favorite. Terrific album too.
