10 of the weirdest Christmas songs you'll ever hear

Are you banging out the Christmas 'choons' in anticipation of Santa’s arrival?

Sure, you can be a cliché with all the boring hits that everyone has heard a thousand times before.

Or, you can be all cool and alternative with our weird Christmas song hit-list.

These are some of the strangest, funniest and, at times, most disturbing Christmas tracks you'll ever hear.

You're welcome in advance.

(Please note: Some of these songs contain colourful language so avoid if easily offended)

1. Matt Mulholland - Silent Night (Recorder By Candlelight) 

This could only be improved by...actually, no. It's perfect.

2."Weird Al" Yankovic - Christmas At Ground Zero

No-one emanates Christmas cheer like old Al.


3. Jingle Cats - Silent Night

We'd be very upset if we found out that these cats did not technically perform this wonderful version of this little ditty.

4. The Ramones - The Ramones - Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)

Some harsh lessons for you and your loved ones at this time of year.

5. Kate Bush - Misty

Ms Bush gets Christmas and Halloween mixed up.

6. Sufjan Stevens - Christmas Unicorn

Coz, you know, Christmas and Unicorns and all that.

7. C3P0 and R2D2 - Sleigh Ride

Star Wars and Santa? Hell ya!

8. Arcade Fire - The Christmas Song (Roasting Chestnuts)

The melodies in this are just beautiful.

Avoid on Christmas Eve. You will NOT be able to sleep after hearing this.

The Beatles of comedy take on Christmas.
