Our radio stations are playing Christmas music 24/7 and they don’t seem to have a wide variety of CD’s, because they repeat the same songs over and over. Maybe they play it safe and everything unusual stays in the shelf, because they fear it would startle some of their listeners.
Don’t get me wrong, I love some of the classic songs like “White Christmas” or “Holly Jolly Christmas”, but I swear I am going to throw my radio in the trash, if I hear Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas” one more time. Enough is enough!
Maybe I am just really a little “grinchy” this Chrismas, but I started searching for some unusual and underplayed Christmas music and I think I came up with some nice stuff. (Hey, I like it what can I say!)
“White Christmas” by Ottis Redding
What an interesting version this is.
“Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues
A classic in the UK that sould shake up our radio stations a little bit (wishful thinking).
“Thank you God it’s Christmas” by Queen
Freddie’s voice at it’s best.
“Christmas must be tonight” by The Band
My all time favorite version of “Silent Night”
“Silent Night” by Mahelia Jackson
