As the title says, this year’s holiday playlist, currently in heavy rotation on the iDevices, is a little stranger than usual. Although it has a little taste of tradition towards the end, the list is still completely Glee-free. And just because I’m in that kind of mood, a couple of bonus tracksÂ tangentiallyÂ related to the season.
A little later than in past years, here’s the holiday-type music now in heavy rotation on all the iDevices. A little more traditional, maybe just slightly mellower, than inpastyears but still with enough oddities to keep things interesting. And, as always, totally and completely Glee-free.
Here are the holiday tunes in heavy rotation on my iDevices (my holiday mix tape, for those old enough to remember that concept). Not much traditional stuff this year, but at least it’s totally, 100% Glee-free.
O Tannenbaum – Naturally 7
All I Want for Christmas Is You – The 88
My Christmas Card to You – The Partridge Family
Oklahoma Christmas – Bruce Robison
Christmas / Sarajevo 12/24 – Trans-Siberian Orchestra
