Christmas Music

How many stations does Milwaukee have playing non-stop Christmas tunes now? Are we going just a little overboard? Honestly, I don't like most of the Christmas music being played on the radio. It's boring, repetitive, and stale. You can only hear "Jingle Bell Rock" so many times before you fly into a blind rage. I'm not a total ogre. I like Christmas, but I have to make an effort to keep some better music playing.

You can expect to hear the following Christmas songs in the Eminent Domain family household...

The Pogues - Fairytale of New York (the greatest Christmas song of all time)
The Ramones - Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)
The Misfits - Blue Christmas
The Kinks - Father Christmas
Tom Waits - Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis
No Doubt - Oi to the World
Jose Feliciano - Feliz Navidad (traditional, but I still like it)
Jimmy Buffett - Christmas in the Caribbean
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Santa's Messin' with the Kid
Cheap Trick - Come on Christmas
Radiohead - Winter Wonderland
Billy Idol - Yellin' at the Christmas Tree
Elvis Presely - White Christmas (album)
Chris Isaak - Christmas (album)

A little untraditional? Sure. But I'm pretty sick of Bing Crosby and Burl Ives by about December 4th.
