Do you love Christmas songs?

I do love Christmas songs. Anything from the traditional carols to the tacky pop numbers by Wham!, Mariah Carey and the Chipmunks.

For those of you who don’t share my enthusiasm for kitsch, Pitchfork‘s compiled a list of top new Christmas ditties you can listen to, by artists like The Killers, The Knife, Sufjan Stevens and Willie Nelson. The link to The Killers’ A Great Big Sled isn’t available in Oz so check that one out on YouTube.

You can also listen to the HypeMachine‘s great aggregate of Christmas songs by the likes of The Flaming Lips, Coldplay, The Arcade Fire, Belle & Sebastian, Loretta Lynn, Snow Patrol, The Beatles, Weezer, The Kinks, Otis Redding, Death Cab for Cutie, Run DMC… and, er, Oscar the Grouch and the Swedish Chef.

Beck, Chris Martin and their animal friends have also got a Christmas concert for you to watch.

For the purists, there’s always Christmas karaoke.

Enjoy! ….. and a Merry Christmas to you all!
