2018's Eclectic Holiday Playlist

2018's Eclectic Holiday Playlist

Will you hear Run-DMC’s Christmas music in the mall? No. But you totally should be and that’s why I created this playlist.

Music fuels me. Creating playlists for different moods, genres, holidays, and events is one of my favorite things to do. Holiday songs can become repetitive and dull. You’ll be doused in “Jingle Bells” in every store and business you visit between now and the 25th and you’ll probably want to rip your ears out. I’m not one to shy away from any genre of music. I hate feeling like I’m limiting myself or sticking myself into a box. So if you’re anything like me and love music – this will be the playlist for you. It ranges from indie to hip-hop to classic to punk to rock.

Traditional Christmas music is nice but unconventional is even better. Last year’s playlist was limited to 67 songs but the playlist is filled with over 100 songs for you and always growing.

What’s your favorite Christmas song? Let me know in the comments below and maybe it’ll be added to the playlist!
