2020 Secular Christmas Music Playlist
Hey all, I finally got my Christmas music playlist up and going! You can follow it here: "Secular Christmas" on YouTube Music. Yeah, I hate YouTube Music, but what can you do? Google decided Play was just too good.
Anyway, I used to just listen to the 24x7 Christmas music station that you always have, but one year I swear every 2-3 songs they'd throw in the most syrupy, off key version of "Mary Did You Know?" and I'd fucking lose my mind. So Cecily and I started curating our own playlist, and this is the result. 135 songs, making up over six hours of Christmas bliss. Shuffle for best results.
Some nots: 1) This isn't purely secular. We don't burst into flame anytime someone mentions God or Jesus or angels, but if you're one of THOSE atheists, this maybe isn't your list. 2) There are some weepy bitter sweet Christmas songs in here, because sometimes Christmas is weepy and bitter sweet. If you've lost someone this year, or are going through a breakup, or are, I don't know, isolated from friends and family because of some global pandemic... be ready for the skip button if it gets to be too much. 3) We tried to do a good mix of classic versions of Christmas standards, covers of same, straight up bobs, and some novelty/comedy songs that we personally like.
