A recent addition to my list, as I was fortunate enough to witness the show.  In particular, I liked Little Steven's hospitality, and Bruce's warm remarks at about the 3:11 mark. Happy Xmas and other religious festival blessings to all. Keep well

Bias aside, I love this song. I own it on CD (in that red cover) but cant for the life of me remember where I got it from.

Christmas Time Is Here from A Charlie Brown Christmas has always been a personal favourite. What a lovely melody.

It needs a little help from Prokofiev.  Surely Mr Prokofiev is a 'friend' of Bono's.

I also love The Little Drummer Boy. And don't hate on me but I also love Scottish Bagpipe music.

The First Noel has been a favorite song of mine since I was a kid.

I was really ranting last year that no one ever covers that song.

And then I was in the local watering hole having a beer at a Christmas party when I heard a familiar song through the speakers. Using Soundhound, I deduced that it was Weezer singing The First Noel. I immediately downloaded it. It's not brilliant, but it's the only rock-n-roll version of it I have.

Sufjan Stevens has done a version. It's very traditional so probably not what you're after, it's nice though.
