Christmas music: you either love it or hate it. If you’re like me, you love Christmas… but there’s just something about the traditional songs that drive you up a wall. This holiday season, I made it my mission to find three songs that may not annoy the hell out of you:
Here Comes Heaven – Elevation Worship
Finally, a Christian Christmas song that captures the holiday’s true message, but doesn’t cause me to immediately change the radio station! Elevation Worship tells tells the story of Jesus without an annoying jingle or a tempo so slow that you fall asleep (sorry Chris Tomlin). If I’m being completely honest, I like this song so much that I listen to in on repeat my entire drive to work today.
Yule Shoot Your Eye Out – Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy is the band that most of us listen to during our angsty middle school or high school years. Perhaps I’m not out of that phase because this may very well be one of the best Christmas songs I’ve listened to. It’s safe to say “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out” isn’t the best song to listen to if you’re trying to celebrate the birth of Christ, but it will give you a good laugh.
Hallelujah – Pentatonix
Okay, you got me. This song is a classic Christmas song, but just hear me out. Or rather, listen to the angelic voices of the five talented individuals in this song. This song is a great compromise if you’re stuck in a car with someone who insists on listening to Christmas music the entire month of December.
