Happy Christmas

In a shameless attempt to get over 5000 hits on my website before Christmas, I have made a little Christmas quiz. 1 point if you can guess the song, 25 points if you know who wrote it and 100 points if you can name the Norweigian winner of World Idol featured on the link (before going there)…
A little Christmas teaser:
Well, Shrek featured this song, considered as the “baseline” of secular hymns, and here it is sung by four Norwegians, including the winner of “World Idol”, who also looks spookily like Shrek. It was written by a Canadian and achieved little success when first released. He wrote around 80 draft verses for it, with one writing session at the Royalton Hotel in New York ending up with him being reduced to sitting on the floor in his underwear, banging his head on the floor.There are now over 300 released covers of the song.
Go here: https://wheatypetes.world/ and find the link on the word songs for the best version of one of the best songs ever…😀  Who got 126 points (you musical genius, you)?
