I was JUST going to recommend that one!!!! My absolute favorite 80s Christmas song. Highest recommendation.
The Eagles "Please Come Home for Christmas" is a nice 80s choice (Bon Jovi later covered it, but the Eagles version is better).
Also the Pretenders "2000 Miles" is a nice Christmas tune.
And my last 80s Christmas song suggestion: "Rock & Roll Christmas" by George Thorogood and the Destroyers.
Edit to add: I found this clip on YouTube
of Squier performing this song on MTV in December of 1981 (when MTV was exactly FOUR MONTHS OLD). Check out the original VJ's in the clip. I still love you, Martha Quinn.
Another edit: George Thorogood also did an MTV version of his Christmas song
. (Man, I love YouTube)
