Thursday Non-Random Songs: Offbeat Christmas Mix


Tired of endless replays of “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Frosty the Snowman”? These lesser-known gems came to my attention in a newsletter from the graphic design shop Phil’s Fonts.

Clarence Carter, “Back Door Santa”

“I ain’t like ol’ Saint Nick, he don’t come but once a year…” Yow!

The Pogues with Kirsty MacColl, “Fairytale of New York”

Wonderfully sad, gritty urban ballad. “I could have been someone…Well, so could anyone.” Plus, how many Christmas songs do you know that include the words “you scumbag”? Not many, I hope.

The Ramones, “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)”

If you find family celebrations triggering, this is the video for you. Love that 1980s hair.


Merry Christmas, everybody!
