Old Music Tuesdays: Christmas songs
Since this Old Music Tuesday falls on Christmas Eve, I thought it was fitting to share some of my favorite Christmas songs with you, dear reader. These may be some of your favorite songs, too, but possibly renditions you have never heard. The songs on the playlist fall into one of two categories: They are either original songs, or they are punk rock and metal covers of old, well-known Christmas songs. I tend to prefer these to the Christmas songs you hear on the radio… irritatingly making the rotation the day after Halloween.
My favorite Christmas song has long been Carol of the Bells, and I think Mae does a fine job covering it. (August Burns Red does a great cover of the song, too, but I already have represented them twice on this list.) I have also included a couple of old original songs, like The Kinks’ Father Christmas and John Lennon’s wonderful War Is Over. Rise Against’s Making Christmas from the album Nightmare Revisited is a fantastic cover of Danny Elfman’s song from The Nightmare Before Christmas. What’s your favorite Christmas song? Leave your answer in the comments.
