I absolutely love that song.

On another note, I was looking through X-mas songs on iMusic, and I found on A Very Special Chrismas vol 3 Chris Cornell doing Ave Maria, it wasn't the best version of the song I've heard but it didn't suck.

Yes. My favorite as well.

And, um, a simple comparison of "War Is Over" by John Lennon, and "Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney should end any debate about who was the better Beatle. :wink:
