We're into the Christmas countdown, for those that celebrate.
|Last year, Daisy learned to hate Santa.|
While I may not get into the holidays like I used to, with a two-month countdown, infinite lists, and overdone decorations, the past couple of years have found me re-gaining my spirit.
So on Sunday, I watched Bad Santa, decorated my apartment with a few items (and managed to break an ornament with my hair - that takes skill, alright?), and I think I'm getting into a Christmas state of mind.
|The Goetz girlies with awesome head-wear.|
The next few weeks will be a whirl of plans - gifts, figuring out when I get to go home, making lists of awesome things to cook and bake (because apparently my somewhat recent affinity for cooking has turned me into a crazy person)... but it's missing something.
A Christmas playlist. The perfect one, no less.
I need to curate the best Christmas/Holiday-related song list ever, and I want your help doing it. So wontcha help a chick?
We'll start the list off with some of my perennial Christmas tunes:
The Pogues - Fairytale of New York:
I post this every year at Christmas, and I'll likely do it yet again this year. You can argue that this song isn't overly Christmas-y due to the "old slut on junk" and her "scumbag maggot", but I like it.
Trans-Siberian Orchesta - Carol of the Bells:
Carol of the Bells is one of my favourites as it is, but this version also appeals to my regular music tastes. Rock and/or roll, reindeer-style.
Run DMC - Christmas In Hollis:
A classic. Well, at least for anyone around my age.
So what would you add to this list? What are your must-have tunes for this time of year?
