  1. Last Christmas is such a classic for me - I will always listen to that when I catch it on the radio, no matter how many times I've heard it in one day!

  4. I first heard that Dominick song maybe two or three years ago. My work neighbor was singing it. It was new to me.

    1. It’s so catchy, my work colleagues hadn’t heard it, they regret asking to hear it!

  5. I love so many of these! Christmas tunes have been awesome this year at distracting me from the state of things... I've been listening to "alternative" versions of well worn classics at lot and The Killers have some really random Christmas songs that I absolutely love at the moment. (For example, Don't Shoot Me Santa)

  6. In general I'm a fan of very classic carols but the Muppets win every time! Fun list.
