My Funny Valentine (Frank Sinatra Cover) || Brendon Urie
Christmas Time Is Here || Mayer Hawthorne
Stay High || Hippie Sabotage
It took me a while to warm up to this song, but it is quite good.
Piano Man || Billy Joel [Buy]
”Yes they’re sharing a drink they call loneliness, but it’s better than drinking alone.”
Billy Joel is a master of music!
Ali & Matthias || M83 [Buy]
This has a bit of an erie feel to it.
Happy Xmas (War Is Over) || Jake Bugg
Animal Keeper || George Barnett [Buy]
Such a great song!
To me, this song feels like a modern version of Beck's 90's stuff. Not sure why…
The First Song || Band of Horses [Buy]
Okay, so this song isn’t exactly a Christmas song… but it’s good and it has lyrics relating to Christmas.
Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song) || Oscar Isaac & Marcus Mumford [Buy]
I had the opportunity to see an advance screening of Inside Llewyn Davis last night, and I enjoyed the movie quite a lot. If you have any interest in folk music, I would definitely recommend going to see it when it comes out in theaters. Oh, and the soundtrack is obviously amazing!
The response I got from the survey was 100% yes on posting Christmas music. I also got a few comments telling me to post mostly indie Christmas stuff that wasn’t played on the radio.
Starting today, in addition to the 2 songs I post, I’m going to post one Christmas song every day until Christmas. (So there will be 3 songs a day.) For the Christmas songs, I have created a list of songs that is a good mix of new(ish) indie Christmas songs, and covers of classic Christmas songs.
I hope you all enjoy it!
