Default Christmas time carol round up.

With 2 weeks to go until Santa Slides down the old chimney and steals your silver ware, its time to get some of that old Holiday spirit. What are some of your go to Christmas songs. Whether beautiful, ironic, a favorite for whatever reason or just plain inspiring, lets create a Calgarypuck unique playlist.


Hallelujah - KD Lang





I love the Cohen original, but there was just something about Lang sang this song with its building power. I consider it a Christmas song that you can listen to year around when you need that chill going up your spine.


Fairytale in New York - The Pogues





Its insane how off beat this song and how it works so well. This song is just a great drinking Christmas song and so great, I still tear up when I hear that and think of the tragic death of the very talented Kirsty Macoll


I could add more, but I want to leave this open to everyone else

Thistlehair the Christmas Bear has become my family’s go-to weird Christmas song

Is Hallelujah a christmas song? Some consider it a secular hymn, about failed relationships:

Pogues/Kristy Macoll has to be number one for me


Darlene Love Christmas baby



the Pretenders 2000 miles- arguably not really a Christmas song but associated with Christmas

I'm generally not a fan of christmas songs, but here's a few I have to hear:










this isn't a "christmas" song, per se. but it feels wintery to me:




just heard this one yesterday and it sums up my feelings:
