We all love the original versions of "Frosty The Snowman" and "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town", but where would we be without modern hits like "All I Want For Christmas Is You?" and "Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer"? So we've compiled a bunch of our favorite brand spankin' new Christmas jams, from artists like Kanye West, Beach House, The Postelles, and more, to really get the party started before Rudolph and that long winter's nap take over.
Be the coolest kid in the family with our obscure Christmas mixtape, brought to you by hipsters, 2010, irony, and CHRISTMAS CHEER.
Scroll Through The Player To Listen To All The Songs On the Mixtape
1. "All I Want Is Truth (for Christmas)" - The Mynabirds
2. "Believe In Me" - fun.
Nothing quite as enjoyable as discovering a band you like wrote a song for Christmas FROM SANTA's PERSPECTIVE and it's so them, it's going in to the regular rotation of playlists containing their stuff.
3. "Will You Be Mine" - Fauxbois
4. "Last Christmas" - The Puppini Sisters
5. "Christmas In Harlem" - Kanye West
The biggest name of the year just had to weigh in on the season... featuring Cam'Ron, CyHi Da Prynce, Pusha T, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, and Musiq Soulchild. Also featuring some rather off-putting Hot Chocolate analogies.
6. "46 Parties" - The Postelles
7. "I Do Not Care For The Winter Sun" - Beach House
I like this song and I also find it hilarious because if Hipster Runoff was going to title a Beach House Christmas song I don't think they could have done a better job. Do u think Beach House is ironic enuf with their Santa?
8. "Happy Christmas Baby" - the boy least likely to
9. "Silent Night" - Brie Stoner
No Christmas mix is complete without new versions of old favorites that segue into OTHER LANGUAGES. Get over it, Grandma.
10. "Frosty The Snowman" - Banjo Or Freakout
Nothing says "It's Christmas!" quit like a brooding, reverberated version of "Frosty The Snowman" that sounds like a Bright Eyes cover. I LOVE IT.
