    Vivaldi and White Christmas sure, but none is surely enough Sufjan Stevens for Christmas. SIX! SIX made the MIX?!! I dunno about anyone else, but I don’t want to hear North American indy singers and bands doing Christmas music. It’s just not to my taste. And am I wrong in thinking they’re all a bit crap anyway? Arcade Fire? I mean really, they’ve got some guy who hits motorcycle helmets and crap. On television. What about some Guns N Roses?

    The best part is that some of the tracks are awful! Particularly the Arcade Fire one. But these are essential Christmas tracks for anyone’s collection.
