Have we done this? I'd say leave off the artist if the tune is a standard. We don't need 40 versions of Greesleeves to choose from as divine as that sounds.

Silver Bells,

Garryowen Supporting Member of TMP06 Dec 2018 6:49 a.m. PST

This is probably not a response in the spirit of the question, but Jingle Bells as we sang it in Vietnam had its own appeal.

Jingle bells,
Mortar shells,
VC in the grass.
Take your Merry Christmas
And shove it up your a__s.

Nobody mentioned The Three Chipmunks' Christmas songs.
