What are considered the DEFINITIVE versions of popular Christmas songs?

So, after decades of basically ignoring them, I'm finally getting into the spirit of enjoying classic Christmas songs. But I don't know much about them. I know many of them have been covered literally hundreds of times. As a starting point, I'd like to better understand which versions of popular Christmas songs have been MOST popular over time.

Uplifting songs about and by women

Most of the music I listen to is by men, and about men. The songs I have from female singers are either somewhat depressing or about love. I would love to get recommendations for uplifting songs by strong women that are not about love.

What is the name for this music scale?

Trying to find if this minor scale has an actual name to it: the intervals are 1, 2, b3, #4, 5, 6, 7. In the key of C, the pitches would be C D Eb F# G A B C. I've been doing some research and the closest results I can find are either melodic minor (C D Eb F G A B) without the augmented 4th or the Hungarian minor/gypsy scale (C D Eb F# G bA B) which has a lowered sixth compared to my example. Is there a succinct scale name or mode that applies to my example, or can it only be described in terms relative to another scale? [more inside]

Get this earworm out of my head! (and onto my ipod)

I have a piece of a song stuck in my head and it's apparently not enough for google to be of any use. It's an 80's or 90's song, with a guy's voice sort of chanting "ooh ma ma way" in an african-y sounding way with a heavy bass line. I feel like it was used a lot in soundtracks to represent a journey or something like that, because it reminds me of solsbury hill. if anyone can name this song, i know it's you lovely mefites.

Help me stop downloading music from the cloud

I have all this music on my iPhone. But when I go to play it, it has to download it from the cloud first. Although the playlists are there, nothing is actually being stored on the phone. So it takes ages and chews through lots of data when I just want to play a song. How do I get rid of all this cloud nonsense and just store old-fashioned music files on my iPhone? (Relevant: I have iTunes Match switched *off* in Settings -> Music on my iPhone.)

A Certain Irritating Soundtrack

A friend of mine's been watching the anime "A Certain Scientific Railgun S", and he's been having trouble identifying one of the incidental music pieces. It's in episode 11, from 17:52 to 20:00--what song is this (mp3), used here, and which of the OSTs is it on, if any? He says he's searched them all, including a second Railgun S OST which apparently came out yesterday, but he can't seem to find it, though he admits that he might have missed it along the line. Any help you can offer he'd appreciate. Thanks!

Song help needed : "beware the romance of exotic frontiers"

Please identify this trailer music.

The UK trailer for the French film Les infidèles has a piece of music about thirty-five seconds in. Does anyone know the artist and title? The hearable lyrics are "I see you watchin the way that I walk, I know you like it the way that I talk..." which seem impervious to Googling and Midomi doesn't recognise it.

Lyric-free music for good concentration while working?

When listening to music and working, I find I concentrate better when the music is lyric free. Please share some of your favorite music without words that helps you get into the zone and also drown out noise while working. I'm open to most kinds of music. So far I'm listening to things like the Tron Legacy soundtrack, Ottmar Liebert, Bernie Williams and some classical music.

A guitar and a bottleneck. Amplifier optional.

There are a couple of scenes in the 1986 Walter Hill film Crossroads in which Eugene's character plays some really bluesy, laid-back, heavily-reverbed slide guitar.

It's an Apple apartment, so I figure the path of least resistance is to get an Airport Express and then connect speakers somehow.

What's the Royal Raceway music from Wreck-It Ralph based on?
