The Playlist, pt. 11: Christmas edition

Listen on: Spotify / we7*

In a festive final entry of 2010, the Playlist signs off with a bunch of songs dedicated to the season. It’s an alternative selection, without Slade, Wizzard or McCartney (and the only Stevens in the mix is most definitely not Shakin’). I even seem to have forgotten to include the stunning a cappella mix of ‘Millennium Prayer’ (an all too easily forgotten b-side) – sorry, but you can’t win ’em all.

Instead, there’s a deaf, dumb and blind kid, a slice of Peanuts music and great potential for suspicion that most of the track choices are the pathetic, lazy result of a Spotify search for the word “Christmas”.

On that note, a merry one to you all!

63. Miles Davis – ‘Winter Wonderland’

64. The Who – ‘Christmas’

65. Low – ‘Just Like Christmas’

66. Tom Waits – ‘Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis’

67. Vince Guaraldi Trio – ‘Christmas is Coming’

68. The Flaming Lips – ‘Christmas at the Zoo’

69. Blitzen Trapper – ‘Christmas is Coming Soon’

70. Sufjan Stevens – ‘Lo! How a Rose E’er Blooming’
