Default Songs That Remind You Of Christmas That Are Not Christmas Songs

Music invokes memories & reminds people of special times, so I'm sure there are songs out there that remind people of Christmas that are not Christmas songs so lets hear yours....



T. Rex - Metal Guru
Even if I hear this song in the middle of summer it still makes me think of Christmas, maybe it's because I've seen this clip of him playing the Christmas Special of Top of the Pops in 1972 in the run up to almost every Christmas I can remember since I've been born.
In fact I would say if I don't see this clip on TV sometime over the festive period I'd feel a little pang of disappointment... but it hasn't happened yet.

Heh. Nice thread topic. A big one for me is the entire album Marquee Moon by Television. I don't know if it's that I happened to get into it around Christmas one year or what, but it's totally a Christmas album for me, especially the title track and "Venus". When I hear them, all I can picture are city streets on a snowy night, with Christmas lights blinking in the windows of apartments.

I was kinda hoping for explanations & stories as to why rather than people just blindly posting videos.

Oh yeah I saw that.

I just wanted to nip it in the bud before I had loads of you tube videos and no comments.
I was going to mention in the original post but I guess I forgot.

^ Wuthering Heights for me as well. Pretty sure it's because I had to read that book for school around Christmas time.

Most random/unusual one is probably:



It was on the 8 Mile soundtrack that I got for Christmas about 10 years ago. I kept playing this one over and over. Always brings that warm and fuzzy Christmas feeling back.

This is an interesting topic:



I really don't know why, but every time I hear this song, it always reminds me of putting decorations up on the tree and hanging stockings. I listened to this song a lot as a kid so that could have something to do with it.
