I know we’ve all heard and loved the classics, but there is only so much “All I want for Christmas is You” that a girl can take. Here are some holiday tunes that’ll hopefully put you in the Holiday spirit, but won’t make you want to kill yourself.
The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
Three words: Never. Gets. Old. I start immediately bouncing when this song plays.
Jimmy Eat World – Last Christmas
OC Christmukkuh anyone?
The Raveonettes – The Christmas Song
Another OC Christmukkuh classic. Seth and Summer forever.
Ron Sexsmith – Maybe This Christmas
Very hopeful and very soothing.
Cascada – Last Christmas
Maybe the only Christmas song you won’t feel weird pre-gaming to.
Death Cab for Cutie- Baby Please Come Home
Everyone needs a little Death Cab in their life (for your more pensive moments).
Ingrid Michaelson – December Baby
Depressing and beautiful.
Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles – Winter Song
The Dandy Warhols – Little Drummer Boy
My all-time favorite Christmas song. This one is definitely more acceptable than Ashley and Jessica Simpson’s version to listen to in public…
Jimmy Eat World – 12.23.95
UGH…JIMMY. 8th grade anyone?
The Thrills – I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Always hated this song as a child, but now it is hilarious.
My Morning Jacket – Xmas Curtain
It’s good. Listen.
Band of Horses – The First Song
Never realized how Christmas-y this song was until now?
