My 2005 Christmas Playlist

ChristmasLast December I unveiled my definitive Christmas mix. This year I created a 247 song Christmas playlist and quickly got tired of skipping over the songs I didn't feel like hearing. My solution to this problem was to create a second Christmas playlist consisting only of the tunes I feel like shuffling this season. The result is my 2005 Christmas playlist, 37 songs strong.

Interestingly enough, there are a number of songs that appeared on my 2004 list but didn't make my 2005 list, even though this season's list is 15 songs longer. Here are the 37 songs I've chosen...

  • Christmas Don't Be Late - Alvin and the Chipmunks
  • Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid
  • Jingle Bells - Barenaked Ladies
