Christmas Playlist - Band Aid Free Zone

My fellow degenerate meatheads and meatheadesses, I’m compiling my Christmas day playlist for when the family are all around. It’ll be me, my wife, my children and their partners and my grandson so no recommendations for shit like Smack My Bitch Up by The Prodigy. I want your favourite Yule choons and I’ll create a playlist on Spotify. So far I have

Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town - Bruce Springsteen
Mary’s Boy Child - Harry Belafonte
2000 Miles - The Pretenders
Its The Most Wonderful Time of The Year - Andy Williams

Hit me up with your recommendations please.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Bing Crosby

O Holy Night - either Faith Hill or Josh Groban

Jingle Bell Rock - whoever the fuck sings it

That Mariah Carey Christmas song

The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire) - Nat King Cole

If I think of anymore I’ll add them

Bobby Helms

The Gift by Garth Brooks
Santa Clause is Back in Town Elvis
Blue Christmas Elvis
The Little Drummer boy Johnny Cash
Okay maybe I’ll be quite now.

Baby it’s cold outside on repeat.

Seriously, Santa Baby is my favorite Christmas song. I don’t remember who sings it.

Some great choices there I would never have thought of.

Anyone who put Maria Carey forward, go stand facing the corner for half an hour and think about what you’ve done.

I just thought this was assumed. I’m toying with the thought of putting this on blast and parking in the local college’s quad just to watch snowflakes melt

College kids are very tolerant of other people’s choices, you’ll be fine.

I’ll make sure to bring my AR for show and tell … just in case any of the local antifa want to get squirrely

Fuck you if you don’t like Christmas.

The Chanuakah song - Adam Sandler
Everyday is Christmas - Sia
You make it feel like Christmas - Gwen
Alabama Christmas - Alabama

Christmas in New York - Shilelagh Law. They’re a local NY band and they wrote this shortly before Christmas in 2001:

Dominick the Donkey - Lou Monte. Guaranteeing the grandkids hop around the house hee-haw-hee-haw-hee-hawing all day:

Merry Christmas from the Family - Robert Earl Keen. Heard it for the first time last year. Instant classic:

Little Drummer Boy - Bowie and Bing. The traditional classic:

just avoid the Christmas Shoes song. It infuriates me why they actually play that depressing shit on the radio

We’re 19 posts in and no one has said Fairytale of New York. What’s wrong with this place?
