I was at a Nine Inch Nails concert and Trent Reznor just spent all his energy performing "Happiness in Slavery." There was a brief break before the band returned and performed "Carol of the Bells" in full Industrial glory. That's the moment when it became my favorite Christmas song ever.

I am putting all my money on Bob Dylan's version of Must Be Santa.
