SICK OF THE SAME OLD CHRISTMAS SONGS EVERYWHERE? HERE’S AN ALT PLAYLIST OF COVERS AND FESTIVE TRACKS.
I always hear the same boring Christmas songs every time I leave the house, or on tv, or just kinda everywhere. It’s fine for a while but after a few listens you’re already ready to hide under your duvet until it all blows over! Well, I decided to scoop up some of my favourite alternative festive tunes and covers from rock and indie bands and pop them into a little playlist so I mean, if you have to listen to the same songs – at least they’re from bands you love! Right?
I never knew My Chemical Romance had a Christmas song until today so I can’t believe i’ve only just found that, 2005 me is super disappointed I didn’t find it on Napster sooner! I’ve mixed up the playlist from a bunch of indie and old school rock n roll – Bruce Springsteen, of course – through into pop punk and modern alt rock.
My personal favourite? Christmas is Awesome by Reuben. I never ever get sick of it. It’s probably my all time favourite Christmas song, although that Destiny’s Child one is pretty good….
