You’re likely already sick of the cheesy, piped Christmas music playing everywhere you go. Christmas tunes are unashamedly cheesy. And we can’t seem to escape them!
So, if you’re shuddering at the thought of hearing Granny Eunice’s Bing Crosby albums or Aunty Mildred’s Boney M once more this Christmas, have no fear, Equilibrio has your back. We have assembled 20 of the best Christmas tunes over the last four decades of modern music for you to take solace in.
We open with arguably the greatest Christmas song of all time from the Pogues. Then we enjoy a meandering journey through time and styles until we close with the sublime When The Thames Froze from the Editors’ Tom Smith (is it just me or are there faint strains of Nkosi Sikelel’ on this?). And no Christmas playlist would be complete without John Lennon’s still amazing Merry Christmas (War Is Over). Now more relevant than ever. At last some Christmas vibes you can enjoy.
