Pop Goes Christmas: A Playlist
Holy shit guys, how did it become December already?
The Christmas season is in full swing, and I'm certainly getting into it after visiting the Distillery District Christmas market with my family on Saturday.
Sunday I dug out my Dollarama Christmas decorations and started decking my halls, while working through my pile of holiday DVDs.
I also started putting together one helluva holiday playlist, featuring some of the best, cheesiest and earwormiest versions of Christmas classics, performed by pop stars of today and yesteryear.
The list is by no means exhaustive, though it was surely enriched after I solicited some suggestions via Twitter.
So, what's your favourite Christmas song by a pop star? Check out my list thus far under the cut, and holla in the comments.
