Your favorite renditions of "The Christmas Song"

I thought of this last night when I was listening to Luther Vandross' rendition of "The Christmas Song" and was wondering what are some other good renditions (OTHER THAN NAT KING COLE) of the song?

Here are 2 of my favorites: Luther and Toni Braxton.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

The Gap Band has a verson, but it's not on Youtube. Technically it is, but the uploader added some beats to it. It's on this album:

I have 5 versions other than Nat King Cole's in my iTunes:


"Love Hurts.
Your lies, they cut me.
Now your words don't mean a thing.
I don't give a damn if you ever loved me..."

-Cher, "Woman's World"

I've never seen this album before. I'm going to have to hunt it down. Thanks for posting.

Nothing can compete with Nat King Cole's but other than that one, I like The Whispers' version.
