I have been trying to post a Christmas song per day since the beginning of December. I think I make a new YouTube playlist every year. (I must have set YouTube to tweet when I add videos to playlists way back… because it seems to be doing that with the stuff I’m adding.)
I enjoy some Christmas albums, but seem to have found a bunch of random songs that I like over the years. Some traditional, some quite the opposite. Here’s the first batch. There is no rhyme or reason or favorite order or anything.
Post some of your favorite Winter Holiday songs in the comments. Links to videos, album names, artists, etc. Show me what you dig!
1. No Doubt – “Oi To the World” (Vandals cover!)
2. MxPx – “Xmas Night of the Living Dead”
3. Willie Nelson – “Silent Night”
4. Run DMC – “Christmas in Hollis” (The A.K.A.’s do a neat cover too.)
5. Johnny Cash – “What Child Is This?”
6. RAMONES – “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)”
7. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – “This Time of Year”
8. Bing Crosby & David Bowie – “Little Drummer Boy”
9. D.I. – “Mr. Grinch”
10. Laurie Berkner – “Santa’s Coming to My House Tonight”
