Modern Christmas Carols

On the way back from the party last night, I requested we tune in to the All-Christmas-All-The-Time radio station, and Mick agreed, with one exception: that if it were one of those modernized "interpretations" of a Christmas Carol, it had to be turned off. Fair enough. Lucky for us, it was a Johnny Mathis tune, and it stayed on. But we did get into a conversation about how some modern Christmas Carols are okay and came up with a laundry list.

And now for the poll:
