There is a very small window leading up to Jesus' birthday where listening to Christmas music is bearable, if not even just a little bit desirable. But it's gotta be the good stuff.
Or, at least, not the exact same stuff that you get bombarded with every time you enter a shop in December. I mean, some songs are unavoidable this time of the year—and it can be hard to decipher from the good and the bad when it comes to yuletide jingles—but you gotta try and mix it up a bit, or else the next couple weeks will slowly & merrily drive you nuts.
To help you with this, I've made a 54 track Xmas playlist on Spotify.
So throw it on shuffle the next time you're looking for a soundtrack to go with your next dip into the eggnog.
Also, if you've got some sweet Xmas mixes or Christmas music favourites that you think I should know about, holler at HI54LOFI on Twitter or use the hashtag #HI54XMAS and we'll keep an eye / ear out for any quality suggestions / mixes.
