My favorite is from the 1974 cartoon called "Twas the Night Before Christmas." It's the one with the mice clockmakers where Santa doesn't want to come to their town because one of the young mice wrote him a nasty letter. So they make a big clock tower that plays this song:

"... come on old Kris Kringle, down the Milky Way. Christmas chimes are calling, 'Santa, we need you today.'"

You can hear it all through the episode: Rankin-Bass'

I also LOVE John Denver's (Emmet Otter) which isn't neccessarily a Christmas Song but it's from a Christmas special.

"Please come home for Christmas"-Heartbreaker, but I love the song

"Pretty paper" Roy Orbison-The Classics never go out of fashion

"Christmas is the time to say I Love you" Billy Squier A rarely played gem from the 80's-I think it was made for an MTV special

The entire "Los Straitjackets" Christmas album-Guitar virtuosity applied to Classic Christmas Standards

Let me think, I know theres more!!
