A Christmas playlist you haven't already heard 200 times

Despite my love of cheesy pop, I have very little time for popular Christmas songs. Wizard? Can leave it. Fairytale of New York? Will switch the channel. Band Aid? You don't want my opinion on super-rich tax dodging celebrities recording charity songs. As a teenager I remember my angst as the music channels shifted from being whatever was popular at the time into full on Christmas (and tbh, I still feel that angst). It's not because of some anti-establishment Grinch belief; it's just very few of the well-known classics do anything for me. 

But because I'm still music fan and a fan of over the top celebrations - every year I scout the internet for the best in festive melodies that aren't what we hear every single year. So here's my collection of lesser-known indie jams, forgotten Christmas songs from really well-known acts and some songs you'll have actually heard of. 

All I want for Christmas is You - Mariah Carey
Love is Christmas - Sara Bareilles
My Only Wish (This Year) - Britney Spears
Christmas Without You - OneRepublic
New Year's Resolution - Camera Obscura
Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End) - The Darkness
Sleigh Ride - TLC
8 Days of Christmas - Destiny's Child
Holiday Celebrate - Toni Braxton
Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Bruce Springsteen
Early Christmas Morning - Cyndi Lauper
Xmas in the Hood - 3LW
Last Christmas - Ariana Grande
This Christmas - Christina Aguilera
River - Tall Heights
Last Christmas - Carly Rae Jepsen
Christmas is All Around - Brad Callow
It's Only Christmas - Ronan Keating
