As usual at this time of year, the Christmas Carols Gone Wrong get circulated around the intertubes.
The Music Academy trotted out this one again. Audio only. Keep listening, or fast forward to 2:13 for the really great bit.

I'm not saying the spoof was a good idea, mind...
UPDATE: Oh, you can even buy it on iTunes. Much like the Portsmouth Sinfonia (see below), a little of this goes a long way.
My favorite version of this great song is still my friend Eileen McIntyre singing it 20+ years ago back in Pennsylvania. Simple arrangement, beautiful voice.
