As many of you know, I’m not the biggest fan of Christmas music. There are many reasons for this, mainly having worked in radio for so long that every year becomes a repeat of the previous one with having to be inundated with the same 20-30 songs played all day everyday for over a month. I don’t work in Top 40 radio on purpose, which is the same thing.
However, lately there have been quite a few tracks written for this season that are original to the artist and not (for lack of a better term) covers of older Christmas songs. This week, as we get ready for another episode of our radio program, I want to share with you some of these fun, creative Christmas songs so you can add them to your music ensemble and incorporate them into your holiday celebration.
I like videos, because they’re fun and can showcase a creative presence beyond just that of the music itself, so here are some fun videos to correspond with the tracks. Enjoy!
The Killers-Don’t Shoot Me Santa
Weird Al-Christmas At Ground Zero
More to come this week!
