I'll admit it. I have a soft spot in my heart for Christmas time.. And that's as mushy as I'm going to get, don't worry. On with the post-- A few years back two CD's were released for download.. "Seriously West Coast" volume's 1 and 2. Volume 2 was a "Christmas" album. I want to find more "snappy" Christmas music like that found on SWCvol2..

Can anyone recommend any compilations?

Here's the track list for SWCvol2 (download here):

(okay, admittedly not ALL tracks are "snappy" ... but some are!)

Barenaked Ladies – God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
The Weepies – All That I Want
Sarah McLachlan – Silent Night
Matt Wertz – What Child Is This
Liily Frost – Skating On The River
Oh Susanna – Go Tell It On The Mountain
Medieval Baebes – The Holly & The Ivy
The Be Good Tanyas – Rudy
Barenaked Ladies – Elf’s Lament
Melissa McClelland – O Holy Night
Jars of Clay – Hibernation Day
Jenny Owen Youngs – Things We Don’t Need Anymore
Martha Wainwright – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Kyle Andrews – Under The Mistletoe
Leigh Nash – The First Noel
Sarah McLachlan – The First Noel (DJ Shah Remix)

Dane,
You might wnat to try Jethro Tull's Christmas Album. It has a nice mix of old standae\rds and new original Christmas songs. I also enjoy the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas albums, especially the last two. Then there is one by a group called December People. They took popular songs and played them the way famous rock bands would have performed them(yes,genisis,sting,queen,led zep,kansas,peter gabriel,and others). They did not try to sound "exactly" like the original band, they only copied the band's style. They did a really nice job.
Merry Christmas,
Mark
