Christmas music. Love it or hate it, there’s no avoiding it.

There’s so much Christmas music out there, yet we stick to the same ten songs: “Jingle Bells,” “Carol of the Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Frosty the Snowman”–you know the list. Why not mix it up a little?

If you’re long on Christmas spirit but short on patience for playing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” at this year’s party, try some of the cuts below. Still not finding anything you like? Here are some previous Christmas “Deep Cuts” editions for you:

Anway, here we go: 2016’s obligatory Christmas playlist:


“Space Christmas,” Shonen Knife.

“Christmas In Suburbia,” Martin Newell.

“Countdown To Christmas Party Time,” XTC.

“Christmas,” Dillon Smith.

“Another Christmas Song,” Jethro Tull.

“Red Water (Christmas Mourning),” Type O Negative.

“Christmas In Jail,” Leroy Carr.

“Christmas Spirit,” Paul Revere and the Raiders.

This is the part where I usually ask what I missed, but I think this time I’ll just wish you the best. You’re pretty swell, and I hope there’s a shiny new bike waiting for you under the tree.
