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.

9. Cyndi Lauper - Minnie And Santa

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

10. Monty Python's The Meaning of Life - Christmas in Heaven 

The Beatles of comedy take on Christmas.
