I'm So Over Christmas Music
 
How many times do I have to hear "Have A Holly Jolly Christmas". No wonder the suicide rates go up around Christmas.

I actually don't mind most Christmas songs but I think I started listening to them too early this year, so now they're getting on my nerves.

When I was in college I worked at a clothing store in the mall and we'd have to play the same Christmas CD all November and December. A lot of the songs were overly poppy and/or non-traditional, because the store wanted to be hip or whatever, but I still remember most of the lyrics 10 years later.

I like the traditional stuff. Not Mairah Carey's Christmas Remakes.

firstdown, I enjoy your Grinch-ness, but I also kind of agree.

It's like, there are never any new Christmas songs, so it seems played out. Like imagine one time a year, it's ALL 80s hits.

By the 24th time of hearing Toto, "Africa", you'll be wanting to rip your ears off.

Here is a new one that is pretty good:

HA. Fantastic.

That Dropkick Murphies one was good too. I just want new songs, not Pop Star du jour singing the oldies.

I love christmas I just don't need to hear Christmas music 60 days prior to christmas. I love playing a Christmas CD while riding around with my daughter or Christmas morning. I just can't get my Jolly Saint Nick going in Novemder until the end of December.

How dare you. I love Christmas music. In part because I can play it at work at a low volume on speakers and not get any complaints because well it helps with the atmosphere. Better then awkward silence.

Still if you're into punk and alternative theres a lot of great Christmas music. [URL="http://youtu.be/LimfDX4-imU"]Smashing Pumpkins[/URL] probably has the most popular Christmas song that isn't traditional or pop.

Some others I can think of:
[URL="http://youtu.be/uUrYTkIBfeI"]Marvelous 3 - Merry Christmas[/URL]

[URL="http://youtu.be/wEBBVh4-eOA"]No Doubt - Oi to the World[/URL]

[URL="http://youtu.be/4Qe1GIdC5DA"]AKA - Christmas in Hollis[/URL]

[URL="http://youtu.be/bbwUu4N2M8I"]Eve 6 - First Noel[/URL]

Love those a lot Dirtbag. I'll have to get those to my wife. She turns on the traditional Christmas channel when we're making dinner and I'm like ARGH!

And like firstdown, I love Christmas and everything about it, the music just needs updating and those links give me hope. It's a Christmas miracle!

My wife loves the traditional Christmas tunes, and I like some of them, but I also like some of the updated stuff too. I'm a HUGE Trans Siberian Orchestra fan!
