Tom Chaplin from Keane did a good Xmas album a couple of years ago, and his track "Another Lonely Christmas" is fab, very Beatles-ey

Speaking of Beatles, I also love Paul McCartney's "Pipes of Peace" although I don't think that counts as particularly obscure.

Kelly Clarkson "Underneath the Tree" is quite good too, and I LOVE George Michael's "December Song", it's so beautiful...

Christmas Day by Dido. Not sure it's that well known as I never hear it on the radio but it's really lovely

Feliz Navidad......only discovered it last year thanks to Heart Xmas in my car.

Absolutely love it.

My other favourite is Greg Lake, I belieive in Father Christmas which i don't think is that mainstream.

White Wine in the Sun by Tim Minchin pretty much sums up my thoughts on Christmas, and gets me in the feels every single time.

The Killers have released some brilliant Christmas songs over the years. My favourites are Boots and Joseph, Better You Than Me which also happens to be the best thing Elton John has done in years.

Not strictly lesser known but Gabriella Aplins version of The Power of love. One of my favourites anyway, the lyrics are gorgeous. It almost makes me cry.

Her voice is beautiful on it.
