Christmas mix (3) – Un-Christmas songs, part one (NSFW)

Not every Christmas song is filled with festive joy. Some of the best are utterly miserable; others document the downsides of Christmas, are cynical about the whole thing, or are just so gloriously vulgar they’re almost completely un-Christmassy.

I’ve selected about three dozen of my favourites – here’s the first half of them… Be aware, it’s not safe for work!

  1. Helen Arney and Paul Richards – Traditional Family Christmas Argument
  2. The Just Joans – Christmas Teardrops (‘Neath Mistletoe)
  3. Departure Lounge – Christmas Downer
  4. Low – Blue Christmas
  5. Buck Owen and the Buccaroos – Blue Christmas Lights
  6. The Wave Pictures with Darren Hayman – Christmas Blues
  7. Shrag – Stop The Revelry
  8. Shawn Lee – I’ll Be Fucking You This Christmas
  9. Slow Club – It’s Christmas and You’re Boring Me
  10. The Hi-Life Companion – Brockweir Winter Reverie
  11. Erin McKeown – Christmas Waltz
  12. Pictures of Then – Presents In June
  13. Steveless – Madvent
  14. Wild Billy Childish and the Musicians of the British Empire – Christmas 1979
  15. The Paraffins featuring Chloe Philip – Christmas in Glasgow
  16. Christa Rebecca – You Still Come Home For Christmas
  17. Gruff Rhys – Slashed Wrists This Christmas
