Fun Friday: Give Me Something to Sing About! (52)

Fun Friday: Give Me Something to Sing About! is where you guys get to see a song or two I like or that I want to talk about each week. Thanks as always goes to J.J. at Random Musings for help with the title.

This week is a special edition of Fun Friday. I'm giving you a playlist instead of just one song.

Presenting - drumroll please - Laina's Christmas Songs That Won't Melt Your Brain

I don't know about you guys, but I get soooo sick of hearing the same old Christmas carols over and over and over again. So this is my attempt at staying cheerful and seasonal without losing my mind.

(All songs link to YouTube videos.)

Deck the Halls - Debby Ryan
Last Christmas - Glee Cast
Wish List - Neon Trees
Everything's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas - Eels
Last Christmas - Taylor Swift (I don't love Taylor's version as much as the Glee one... but it's a close second.)
Mittens - Carly Rae Jepsen
Why Doesn't Santa Like Me - Skye Sweetnam
Christmas Lights - Coldplay
Oh Star - Paramore (Okay, this one isn't technically a Christmas song, but it always seem Christmas-y to me.)
Santa Claus Lane - Hilary Duff
Baby Please Come Home - Josh Ramsay
Frostbite Kisses - Jakalope
Sing in Celebration - Faber Drive
Hello December Sun - Frederick

I haven't heard the Glee Christmas CD songs yet (I'm typing this up before the episode airs and I haven't looked any of them up on YouTube) but once I have, they'll probably end up on here, too.

What are your favourite not-so-traditional Christmas songs? Original or covers, anything that isn't the norm.

Peace and cookies,
Laina
