Tis the season to listen to a lot of great Canadian Indie Christmas Holidays music! This year more than ever I need some music to get me through. With the recent loss of my sister, I really wish I could be with the rest of my family but stupid Covid gets in the way again. It’s been a tough year but I still plan on finding some holiday joy and my hope is that the playlists helps us all.
This is another playlist that began back on the CBC website and then I brought what I could over to Spotify. I have shared it for many Christmas seasons now and got some suggestions along the way for more tracks to add. It is getting quite long! There are a growing number of versions of traditional Christmas music now but I do prefer the original songs. There is also a YouTube playlist with most of the same tracks. I love Wintersleep’s Little Drummer Boy and it isn’t available on Spotify but I was able to add it on the YouTube one. And yes Ivan Hrvatska’s First I Make Love To You, Then I Make Love To Christmas is still on both. I have added a condensed Spotify playlist for 20202. Do you have a Christmas or Anti-Christmas song by a Canadian artist (indie preferably) that you would like added to the playlists?
For some more seasonal music you can head to The Line of Best Fit where they have their download of Ho! Ho! Ho! Canada 12 featuring seasonal selections from many artists. I have added the ones I could to our playlist but not all are available on Spotify. Arts and Crafts also had a playlist out for the holidays and I have added those tracks to our playlist as well.
Thank you to everyone that checks in here, whether you post a comment or not. Thanks for reading and listening and sharing the love of music. Enjoy the playlist and Happy Holidays!
Here is the condensed version.
