Blue Christmas playlist

I love Christmas, love the music, love the season, love my family, loving giving people presents. For some reason, I’ve always loved sad Christmas tunes, and now that I’m older the bitter and sad makes the happy that much sweeter.

Please come home for christmas – Holly Cole
Fairytale of New York – The Pogues For those Irish Christmases of old when yer love went wrong.
Get me through December – Natalie Mcmaster & Allison Krauss
River – Linda Ronstandt Another done somebody wrong song, but at Christmastime.
Song for a winter’s night, and Wintersong – Sarah Maclaughlin. When you miss the ones you love.

*sigh* There’s just too much sad going around lately.


  1. Fairytale of New York is just such a great song.

  2. Those are some of my favourites, too. Must be the maudlin gene we inherited.

  3. Don’t forget to add “Hard Candy Christmas” by Dolly Parton to the list. To me Christmas is the time to reflect on the past year, to count our blessings with both laughter and tears.
    Wanda for a bit of nostalgia check out Robert Earl Keen’s Merry Christmas from the Family on You Tube,
