Paul's is total manure. John's is one of the best Xmas songs of all time by anyone.

John's.

The opening (after their whispering) is amazing with the the "so this is Christmas?" line, sets the mood for the entire song

John's song is far better in my opinion.

What about this "I Saw Her Standing There"-like version of "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree"?

Me too :) ! Part of the reason is because I remember hearing it when I was younger and I loved it even when I didn't know who Paul was ha2ha Also, speaking of the song, I really want to show you this video of Peter Serafinowicz doing an impression of Paul and he does a parody of the song:

You've got good taste in music, Jema.   ;)

That's the best reason I've seen so far!  Even better than the reason you gave when you started this thread!



Have a Wonderful Christmastime, Jema!

It says on Wiki that Paul McCartney has since said that he is now embarrassed about Wonderful Christmastime. I find that hard to believe.

That comment required verification.  I find it hard to believe too, especially seeing how much fun he has performing it live and grooving on the crowd's reaction...

And after two years.... The thread is awaken!

I chose War is Over. Probably because I know it more and it kind of has a bit more of a meaning and stuff. Paul's one is a bit silly and fun - which is great but yea there is not much to it for me
