Christmas always comes around so soon, suddenly the radio is blasting out Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas is You‘, and you forget that we’re technically still in Autumn. So to ease you in, we’ve put together two playlists – a Winter Favourites Playlist and a Christmas Playlist.
So if, like me, you’re not quite ready for mistletoe and wine, I’ve created a Winter playlist that will take you into the winter months and through the new year. Afterall winter isn’t just about Christmas! Here you’ll find everything you’ll need to ease you into the season from Nick Drake’s ‘Northern Sky‘ to The Staves ‘Winter Trees‘! If, however you’re ready and raring to go, scroll below to our Christmas Favourites!
When it comes to Christmas music, I always have a few classics that I can’t resist, like The Pogues ‘Fairytale of New York
‘. But, I have an obsession with finding alternative versions of well known songs, so in my Christmas
playlist, you’ll find gems like The Beach Boys’ cover of ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town
You’ll also find more modern Christmas songs that may be a little less known like The Futureheads ‘Christmas was Better in the 80s‘! I’m a sucker for a singalong, so expect many in our Christmas playlist!
What are your thoughts? What’s your favourite Christmas or Winter song? Leave your faves in the comments, or tweet us @gypsy_dreams_ and if we like what we hear, we’ll add it to the playlist and give you a shoutout! Just use the hashtag #GDmusicshoutout!
