Look, there’s nothing wrong with “Sleigh Ride.” Or the 1.6 millionth version of “Carol of the Bells,” rearranged by a metal guitarist and an accordionist, or whatever viral cover is circulating this week.
But don’t you want more from your Christmas playlist? There’s a whole world of unexplored Christmas songs out there for you to populate your parties with, and we’re here to help.
If you’re tired of Bing Crosby (unless we’re talking about that video of Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing together) and “Linus and Lucy” (everyone knows “Christmas Time Is Here” is the best cut off A Charlie Brown Christmas), this is the playlist for you.

But, you know, there is always A Charlie Brown Christmas.
