Five of The Best Christmas Songs You’ve Never Heard

24 Dec 2013

As screeched by Noddy Holder – IT’S CHRISTMAS! And what better way to indulge in all the Christmas spirit than grabbing a mince pie, getting your Christmas jumper on and getting festively ear-drunk on some seasonal songs…Don’t worry, you won’t find any more Noddy Holder, any Wombles or gorgeous George’s hair around here. So without further ado, Muzo would like to present to you five of the best Christmas songs you’ve never heard! Click the videos below to enjoy…

John Williams – Somewhere in My Memory:

With all due respect to one of the best and most influential films from my childhood, this carol is too good to forever go through life simply as the “Theme from Home Alone”.

Bowling for Soup – I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus:

Punk Rock at Christmas…not a chance! But Bowling for Soup deliver drums, guitar riffs and loud vocals as they redeliver this classic, which is guaranteed to have grandma well and truly ‘Rockin’ around the Christmas tree’.

Louis Armstrong – Christmas in Harlem:

Louis, his trumpet, his voice, which is as cosy as a Christmas fire, and lyrics such as ‘cats sleepin’, warm as toast’ this a Christmas rolled into one. Perfect!

Lady Gaga – Christmas Tree:

Pulsing, futuristic electro beats, a great chorus hook, and more sexual innuendos than, like, “Poker Face”, which is saying something! It’s hard to believe how this faded away so quickly in 2008.

Pentatonix – Little Drummer Boy:

Smooth vocals, great harmony’s, and let’s face it an array of noises that a person shouldn’t be able to create with their mouth. But you can’t help but get in the Christmas spirit when listening to Pentatonix super-cool cover of this Christmas classic.

There you have it, 5 of the best Christmas songs you’ve never heard! We hope you’ve enjoyed them and discovered some new seasonal favourites. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
