Any recommendations on some alternative or old school Christmas music?
None of this Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, cheesy pop , run of the mill shite.
I agree with you, I can't stand the cheesy stuff! I have a really nice CD (if you still listen to CDs) called Pianoel (vol.2). It's all instrumental with an emphasis on the piano with a slightly jazzy edge, and it's all the traditional songs. It's easily my favorite holiday music. Every year when the I put it on, the kids know the holiday season has begun. Reminds me, I have to go look for it! Hope you get some other good suggestions, it seems more and more difficult to avoid the current pop artists' "Christmas Albums".

Did the MiniPops put out a Christmas album? What about The Chipmunks?

I am so sick of Christmas music. I hear it every time I turn on the television beginning in late October, and any place where a person can purchase something throughout November and December. Year after year, over and over, the same stupid ass songs... I don't know how much more I can take.
Anyways, to answer your question Bing Crosby is probably what you are thinking of when you think "old school" Christmas music. The only form of Christmas music that I enjoy is the kind that keeps me entertained and laughing because Christmas should be fun, not boring and dull. If I have to give a recommendation on a Christmas album that is worth picking up it has to be Afroman's A Colt 45 Christmas[=http//www.amazon.com/Colt-45-Christmas-Afroman/dp/B000I5YCJC/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1195718086&sr=8-1]Afroman's A Colt 45 Christmas
. The album is all parody Christmas music that incorporates sex, violence, and drug abuse in a humorous way. Therefore, it is completely awesome ).
Old school Elvis Christmas
Christmas with Dino
A jolly christmas with Frank Sinatra
The Sugarhill Gang.
Just play [i2928b1af2b]Rapper's Delight[/i2928b1af2b] on repeat.
But seriously, go with some Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley. They sound holiday-ish and they're actually good singers.
Yo man...Don't be dissin Michael Bolton.
