blog-vent calendar

One more day! Enjoy one of our favorite Christmas songs as covered by Florence + The Machine.

We’re throwing it back to high school today with The Maine. All ye fan girls rejoice! Hope you’ve been enjoying your winter holiday! Sit back and relax by the fireplace with Ryuichi Sakamoto’s “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.”

Yeah.    John Lennon.  You knew we wouldn’t forget this one.

Los Straitjackets are a quartet of luchadores who play surf rock.  We feel that’s all the endorsement you need.  Enjoy their rendition of Frosty the Snowman.

Kemuri is a Japanese ska band that shares a common philosophy: Positive Mental Attitude.  We think we could all use that right now, with stressing over grades and holiday stress.

Some holiday joy from the Killers. We can’t let a collection of holiday music go by without sharing the theme to one of the best Christmas movies of all time.

The notorious satirist presents perhaps the most accurate Christmas song you’ll ever hear.

“The band that killed disco” brings you an original holiday classic.

As is usual for Tim Minchin, this song simultaneously political, heartfelt, and hilarious.

Whats a partridge? and whats a pear tree? I don’t know so please don’t ask me But I can bet those are terrible gifts to get.

The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl sing this touching tale of Christmas Eve in the drunk tank (somewhere we imagine Shane MacGowan spent one or two nights).


Lady D says: The reason I like this  song is because is just a mixture of the spanish and english language. As a latina living in the US; I always try to bring out my roots in any positive way. I just think this song bring out the Christmas spirit no matter where you come […]

A religious classic done by a band with a very non-religious stance.  It’s surprising to say the least. Have a favorite non-traditional Christmas song?  Leave us a comment below!
