Antidotes to hated Christmas songs, 2018 Edition

And, as has been repeatedly demonstrated over the years, we can't have a Most Hated Christmas Songs thread without also having a thread for posting the songs you use to drive out the hated-song earworms.

What are your favorite musical antidotes to overplayed Christmas glurge?

I hadn't been thinking of it as that, specifically,  but I recently dusted off Siouxsie & The Banshees' "Hyena" and have been listening to it a lot, and finding it stuck in my head more often than the more tedious holiday selections out and about lately, so let's go with that.

The least Christmassy winter song I know of:


"Winter Games". (I have fond memories of this from the opening of the 1988 Winter Olympics, which was a video me and my brother watched many times ... we had strange taste as kids.)
