Christmas Music I Can Actually Stand

Mood/Music Monday

It's almost Christmas, therefore, by some unwritten rule, I should probably post Christmas music.

I've been listening to nothing but The Uncluded for three days, and have no real interest in deviating from that. (That's how I process music—artists/albums on obsessive repeat for days/weeks/even months. Is there any other way?) But since The Uncluded isn't for everyone (even though it should be!), here's some Christmas music I can actually stand by artists I actually like.

P.S. – I'm thoroughly convinced that Bob Dylan wrote It Must Be Santa because he knows it's impossible to listen to that song and not smile. Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/whatever we're supposed to say now.

(I was wrong—Bob Dylan did not write Must Be Santa. It was, in fact, written by Hal Moore and Bill Fredericks. The things one can learn from the Internet.)
