Like most people, I have a Love/Hate relationship with Christmas songs. I CANNOT STAND THEM in shopping malls (whoever made some of these horrible renditions needs to be retired from the music industry immediately) but I do love listening to Christmas tunes at home. Just hearing the beginning of Otis Redding’s ‘White Christmas‘ makes my spine tingle and I just can’t help but sing along to Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas is you‘ (even the Justin Bieber version).
The fact is that most Christmas songs are actually great, it’s their interpretation that often leaves something to be desired… With that in mind, I thought I’d make you a little Christmas mix full of songs that (hopefully) won’t make you cringe. It’s an eclectic mix with artists like Zooey Deschanel, The XX and Kanye West but they all have one thing in common – they know how to do Christmas songs right!
Did I miss any of your favorites? I’m always looking for new cool Christmas tunes so please share your picks in the comments section and I’ll add them to this mix!
