Despite Halloween and Thanksgiving being more my favorite… I do enjoy Christmas & Christmas music, both traditional and decidedly not-so.
I resisted streaming for a long time, in favor of just popping mp3’s on to a thumb drive & listening in the car/truck. I’m still in a lot of remote areas, and I think I clung to a desktop setup for a while longer than the rest of the world.
Someday, someday, I will rip all my CD’s, corral all of my purchased mp3’s or FLAC files, & pop the stuff on some kind of server so I can call it up at will.
I use Spotify occasionally. I would use it more, but I refuse to pay for a premium account, and sometimes I swear songs vs. commercials are 1:1 if not 1:3. I refuse to pay for Spotify premium account because we have whatever all-encompassing Amazon plan gives you Prime and Amazon Music.
I’m still building my Amazon playlists… I may pay for one to move to Spotify lists over. Maybe. I’d rather just by records, CD’s, & downloads directly from artists.
I just reached out on a couple of FB forums asking for suggestions, and I’m still pouring through, but these are my playlists across different platforms…
- Spotify | Christmas Favorites 🎄☃️❄🎅
- Spotify | Christmas 🤘🎸🎄
- Spotify | Xmas Naughty
- Amazon Music | Christmas – Nice 🎄
- Amazon Music | Christmas – Naughty 🎁
- YouTube | Christmas Chaos! 🎄🎸🤘 (Going to add stuff here if I can find it & it’s not available streaming on Amazon or Spotify.)
- YouTube | Christmas 2020 🎶🤘🎅🎸🎄🎵
- YouTube | Merry Christmas 2020 from the Christmas Carrolls
- YouTube | Christmas Playlist – Naughty
- YouTube | Christmas Playlist – Nice
I ‘m still adding/shuffling on the Amazon lists and they’re good for all-day playing. I might have to make one narrowed-down with my absolute favorites.
So, what’s on your Christmas playlist? Any glaring omissions? Any you love or hate with a passion? Tell me about your holiday music in the comments. Am I missing any good Festivus or Hanukkah songs?
