In the past we've put together some pretty extensive lists of Christmas/holiday songs that are related to the genres covered on this website:

• The Christmas Song List (2010)
• The Christmas Song List (2008)
• The Christmas Song List (2007)
• The Christmas Song List (2006)
• The Christmas Song List (2005)
• The Christmas Song List (2004)
• The Christmas Song List (2003)

It makes since to do it again ... especially now that all the local stores are blaring their own holiday tunes, and I need some stuff to drown it out with: holiday music in December rules.

Haven't seen any exciting covers yet this year. Stoked to see what comes out of this.

Looking forward to checking out the She & Him Christmas album though.

I foolishly edited the 2010 thread title to 2011 just so people could carry on the discussions they were having already this year, makes more sense to start a fresh turn in here though.

She & Him and Michael Buble have been the only additions I've made to my personal Christmas library this year, but I'm looking forward to getting plenty more in the next couple weeks. Gonna grab Emmy the Great & Tim Wheeler right now...

Oh and can someone give an explicit ruling on posting links? I'm happy to post what I've got, but I don't want to end up bringing down the banhammer on myself.

Edit: I didn't realize Emmy the Great/Tim Wheeler was all original songs. Excited.

I haven't bought any of 2011's Christmas releases yet, but I'm looking forward to picking up David Crowder*Band's Oh For Joy EP and Justin Bieber's Under the Mistletoe.

Also, David Ian (of Superchic[k] fame) released a jazzy Christmas album with Acacia Wulfing (from Tal & Acacia) and Andre Miguel Mayo on vocals that's appropriately titled Vintage Christmas. The clips I've heard are nice.

Forgot about She & Him. Sounds like it'll be good.

Sampled Vintage Christmas on Spotify... pretty good, but kind of meh.
Giving this year's Glee album a try too. Didn't really enjoy last year's but the tracklist on this one practically guarantees a few good ones.

Does Man Overboard's "Decemberism" count? I know it was on a 2011 release, but I'm not sure if it was originally released before or not.




Good for when I'm in the mood for a super cheesy yet cheery tune.
