Christmas Song Open Thread
Starting the day after Thanksgiving I began scavenging for Christmas music, preferably new and original songs. I probably have gone through a hundred or so in the last several weeks and here are the standouts:
Favorite New Song:
The Winter Sounds - The Anthem Is A Gift
Favorite New Song (alternate):
The Sky Drops - Christmas Feels Like Halloween
Favorite Anti-Christmas Song:
The Boxmasters - Slower Than Christmas
That last one was released in 2008 and is from Billy Bob Thornton's band. I didn't know either when I listened to it, and I wonder if it would have made a difference.
How about you? Any favorites, old or new? Does the whole season just make you crazy? Does it pass by without much notice? Does any other holiday have a favorite song of yours, or generic holiday songs?
I'll be leaving for the day in an hour or so; I'll lurk in the comments till then and respond after that as I can.
