I’ve never understood the attraction to this new-school, R&B bullshit when it comes to Christmas music. I’m sorry, but I don’t want to hear you riff 4,378 times during “Jingle Bells.” Therefore, this is my ultimate Christmas 2014 playlist, so you can rock out to some classy-ass music while you’re putting up decorations. (Sorry, non-Christmas celebrants – I was feeling festive.)
Nobody does a rock’n’roll Christmas like TSO! ARE YOU FUCKING PUMPED TO DECORATE?!??!
Sorry guys, but I will take Bing Crosby over Mariah Carey any day. That classic baritone croon!
If you have never been in a bar full of Irish people singing this song… well than you may still have intact eardrums.
Because no one wants to hear “The Christmas Song” again.
Let’s mix it up with some gee-tar! My god, I have become my mother.
A little rudeness and vulgarity just adds to the Christmas cheer.
The King does the holidays right.
IMHO, the most underrated Christmas song around, and the only part of Handel’s Messiah that I am willing to listen to on repeat.
A lot of Sinatra’s holiday stuff comes off as pretty smarmy. This one, however, takes a more heartfelt turn.
11) BONUS TRACK: Thurl Ravenscroft – Mr. Grinch
Oh, Thurl Ravenscroft. A God among men.
