Its Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas: Xmas miX

Stores have had Christmas decorations out and radio stations have been playing Christmas music since before Halloween. I follow a strict after Thanksgiving rule because I find myself a little tired of listening to the same songs for a whole month. This year I decided I would find some songs about Christmas and winter that I had not heard before and I thought I would share some with y’all.

Animal Collective- Winter Wonder Land
Arcade Fire- Jingle Bell Rock
Bob Dylan-Must Be Santa
Low-Just Like Christmas
Oh No Ono-Icicles
Queen-Thank God It’s Christmas
Radiohead-Winter Wonderland
Shonen Knife- Space Christmas
Sufjan Stevens-Hey Guys! It’s Christmastime!
The Flaming Lips-Christmas at the Zoo
The Knife-Christmas Reindeer
The White Stripes- Candy Cane Children
Yeah Yeah Yeahs-All I Want For Christmas
