Just a few weeks to go and it’s Christmas once again! But are you getting buzzed ears from all the cheery/cheesy holiday songs? Try these songs for an alternative holiday playlist.
There’s nothing wrong with singing the traditional songs for the Holidays, in fact, they can bring back great memories from Christmases past. But your ears can always use a little bit of fresh tunes that still hark to days of great Holiday cheer.
This week’s entry for PYHOF gives you a playlist that will cater to your alternative Christmas. Listen to songs that paint pictures of a vengeful Santa Claus to a Christmas Eve in Harlem. Also, take note of The XX’s cover of Wham’s song “Last Christmas,” they offer quite a fresh take on an otherwise overplayed Yuletide track.
Relish the holidays with new beats for your own Christmas playlists or mixed cds. For those old-school audiophiles out there, keep those mix tapes coming!
