That's right, folks. It's the rarest of things — a Christmas song that doesn't make you want to vomit, or jam sharp pencils into your ear-holes. Finding one of these gems is like stumbling across a white tiger in your backyard — you can't believe it's there, you know it's not supposed to be there, but you're going to suspend your disbelief and just enjoy the moment. Here's our top six Christmas songs that don't suck.
6. “Little Drummer Boy,” The Dandy Warhols
The reason this is a good festive song is because if you're at a holiday party and you're wasted and this comes on, it takes at least two minutes to realize that it is, in fact, a Christmas song at all. Oh, the jingle bells are there alright, you're just not getting beaten over the head with them. Which is nice.
