I'm sorry if you hate Christmas music because this post is all about Christmas music. So much of my (Jamie's) Christmas memories involve the music -- singing loud in the backseat of the car every Christmas Eve as we drove home from my grandparents, the 24/7 Christmas radio station, Christmas concerts at school, my mom playing some of her favorite Christmas records, the Christmas music in the background while decorating the tree, the stores playing Christmas music while I shop, caroling in our neighborhood on the coldest night of the year, being appalled and secretly happy that my mother went out and bought the Hanson Christmas album, baking Christmas cookies with my stepmom and listening to her favorite country Christmas music, etc.
So to start out our Holiday Shenanigans week, I'm sharing two playlists with you --
My Indie Christmas playlist: I hate classifying music but this would be more of the indie/alternative artists and bands that I love -- more modern takes on classics and a few not typical Christmas songs. I love this playlist to death! (You can find this playlist here on Spotify! Oh and follow me (username: itsahitinsweden) if you also have Spotify! Also, you have to hover over the playlist to see the scroll bar -- there's 36 songs)
My "classics" list (90's and earlier): These are the songs that have always been in rotation in my house when I was a teenager. I will seriously never forget how much my mom played the Hanson Snowed In cd or how she was obsessed with Grandma Got Run Over by A Reindeer and we'd play that record so many times. These songs are my childhood basically. (Here's the link to this playlist)
hey nice post mehn. I love your style of blogging here. The way you writes reminds me of an equally interesting post that I read some time ago on Daniel Uyi's blog titled How To Stay Positive Around Negative People During Christmas .ReplyDelete
keep up the good work.

zakns, for the playlist. I love same songsReplyDelete
These are great lists!! One of my favorite Christmas songs is Carol of the Bells by the Trans Siberian Orchestra. You can't really sing along because it's just instrumental, but the orchestration is spectacular!ReplyDelete
You are my music guru, Jamie. As if I haven't told you that already.ReplyDelete
For me it's the cheesier the better with Christmas music! I love Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday! And I do also like the more traditional Silent Night.ReplyDelete
Love the first list! I'm always on the lookout for more modern Christmas songs (I live on the indie Christmas radio station on Pandora). I'm hunting for some New Wave also; if you're into that, I love XTC's "Thanks for Christmas".ReplyDelete
I love kid's Christmas songs, like "I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas" and "Dominic The Italian Christmas Donkey," but my favorite non-gag song is "Mele Kalikimaka" by Bing Crosby. After my Mom running X-mas music into the ground when I was a kid (end of Oct. - beg. Jan.) I only like Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby and the silly ones anymore! :DReplyDelete
