Do you have a favorite non-traditional holiday song?
So, we all know the ”traditional” holiday and winter songs, but there’s a lot more holiday music out there that’s pretty fantastic. For instance, the brilliant Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans-Siberian Orchestra (who I got to see in concert. Fantastic show) and the silly Elf’s Lament by The Barenaked Ladies and Hanukkah Song by Adam Sandler. Or more mellow, wintery songs, like The River, Winter Song, and Snowfall by Sara Bareilles, Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson, and Vienna Teng, respectively. And as an atheist, I always like to see my values reflected in this rather religion saturated time, so something like the Atheist Christmas Carol by Vienna Teng speaks well to me.(and please, no religious bickering here. It will be flagged as inappropriate. Please feel free to post a favorite religious holiday song if you want, but let’s keep arguing out.)
So, I’ve talked (typed?) long enough, any favorite non-traditional songs you want to share? Something we can all put into our various mp3 players to use to drown out the usual ‘traditional’ drone of every shopping this time of year, perhaps?
