Jonathan,
Here are a couple suggested tunes to add to your list. Both are by Bob Dylan:
"Are You Ready?" (http://www.bobdylan.com/songs/ready.html)
"When He Returns" (http://www.bobdylan.com/songs/whenhe.html)

Both these songs touch on the primary theme of Advent: Prepartion and repentance in anticipation of the coming again of Christ.
