Share the Christmas music you're into this year!


#1

We are now two weeks into what I consider the Christmas season (don’t @ me) and I decided this morning I wanted to put together a Christmas-y playlist. I’m only a few songs into it, so I don’t have anything very complete to share yet, but even as I’m just starting to sketch it out in my head, I’m very excited.

For me, the number one thing I have to have on a Christmas music playlist are the highlights from the Jackson 5 Christmas album, which definitely skews the entire playlist toward pop and R&B that fits in with those songs. I also try to force some Sufjan Stevens in there, to varying degrees of success. I love the Sufjan Christmas stuff, but it’s definitely inconsistent with a lot of other stuff I listen to.

So what are you into? Do you loop All I Want For Christmas Is You? Do you just let the radio decide? Do you spend a weird amount of time overthinking it like me? <3

I feel obliged to say at this point that Driving Home For Christmas is objectively the best Christmas song


#3

My fave song is basically “The Christians and the Pagans” by Dar Williams just about every year. I don’t know what it is about pagan lesbians that makes me both very happy and crying at the same time.

My fave Christmas album is A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio :christmas_tree::christmas_tree::christmas_tree::christmas_tree::christmas_tree::christmas_tree::christmas_tree::evergreen_tree:

Along the pop theme, I have to fully endorse the Beach Boys Xmas album, and Glees first one as well.

Christmas season? I’m still celebrating Halloween!


#7

I usually despise Christmas music, but Sufjan Stevens’ Christmas albums are absolutely incredible.

Both albums here.

Okay actually yes. One hundred percent agree.

Yall have already given a bunch of good stuff I didn’t know about! Thanks!

Just rememembered I would be remiss not to share Hark! a year-round podcast that talks about two Christmas songs per episode. It is a very sweet show http://harkpodcast.tumblr.com/about

I’ve listened to Bad Religion’s Christmas album every year since it came out.

my dad found out that Earth, Wind & Fire have some extremely listenable christmas albums, so they’re gonna be our go-to. hopefully they satisfy the members of the family that hate christmas music and those that insist on having The Classics on all December


#16

There’s only one christmas song in my life and it’s this version of All I Want For Christmas Is You


#17

I just looked up this album, and discovered there is a Christmas version of September, retitled December, and I cannot stop laughing. Thank you for this blessing.

I don’t care what anyone says, Baby It’s Cold Outside is a great song and I love it.

I also really like hymns like O Holy Night and We Three Kings and What Child Is This even though I’m atheist. They are just really nice songs.

My least favourite Christmas song is Last Christmas.
