Your Alternative Christmas Albums

Recommended Posts

I have a great Brian Setzer xmas album - can't remember the exact title (will look it up in a bit) but this is something similar from YT. Scan through  - it's great imho.

I've got more - I'll post the names later unless someone else mentions them.

As this doesn't seem to be very serious, please add Boney M Christmas album to your list. Local radios started playing some songs already on October. It is just too much...

@lemonstar If you love the Brian Setzer stuff, I would wholeheartedly recommend the Christmas Extravaganza edition with the Live DVD.  It's a joy.

We'd been promising ourselves a last minute type of trip to the west coast to catch one of his Christmas shows; it was destined to be this year, but (luckily for us at least as we hadn't booked), he pulled out of the tour with severe tinnitus.  Here's hoping a recovery of sorts and maybe 2020 will be the year.

If you like acapella then this album is a gem.

My alternative Crimble choices include Aimee Mann’s One Mor Drifter In The Snow and Horslips Drive The Cold Winter Away...

The ultimate punishment for the worst crimes would have to be Death by Xmas Songs - I feel so sorry for those who work in shops and are forced to listen to this drivel every 11 months (remember Xmas starts in November).

The only Xmas songs I can listen to are by Michael Bublé which many would consider the typical Xmas drivel I'm complaining about.

The irony...

Not a whole album, but this track by my friend Lou Rhodes was her anti Christmas Carol, and last track on her solo album One Good Thing.  Apologies to any Christians on here, but I love the sentiment of this track
