Alternative Christmas Playlist
In a past life I was a DJ and I loved going out and doing the gigs. For me the best time of the year was at Christmas time. There is so much diverse in songs you can choose from. I have a very mixed genre taste in music. Because of this I thought I’d share some Christmas songs you should add to your playlist.
Geraldine McQueen aka Peter Kay Once Upon a Christmas Song. The song was done as a spoof from Peter Kay saying about singing the same old Christmas songs each year. Actually it’s one of my favorite songs to sing each year.
Cheeky Christmas by The Cheeky Girls. Who doesn’t want to have a little transylvania cheeky Christmas song in their playlist. With a bit of cheekyness comes spice and another classic Christmas Wrapping by Spice Girls.
Christmas wouldn’t be the same without some Michael Buble. Although I love Tom Jones original, Idina Menzel and Michael Buble Baby It’s Cold Outside I do have a soft spot for this one. I know that Mariah Carey version of All I Want For Christmas Is You is a timeless classic but you cannot deny that Michael Buble version is best. Another version of the song is by The Chemical Brothers and the version on Love Actually.
When it comes to cover of songs, which are better than the original includes in my opinion this includes the cast of Glee and their version of Do They Know It’s Christmas and Big Reunion version of I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday and Mean Girls version of Jingle Bell Rock.
Few years ago on Facebook, I was tagged in a video going around, every year I get a reminder on Timehop. So I thought i would share it with you……
After all that and you want a classic song, Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty McCall is a classic, and a top favorite song for me!
