I’ve been listening to Christmas music pretty much exclusively since a few days before Thanksgiving. Yes, I am that person, and I’m not ashamed. I love all Christmas music (literally ALL OF IT), but there are 7 songs that I listen to on repeat pretty much every day, and somehow I never, ever get sick of them. Here they are, in no particular order: Keep reading »
Christmas carols are nice, but they’re a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don’t you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it’s time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and horrifically bad gifts? Read on for three modernized Christmas carols! Keep reading »
Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber‘s “All I Want For Christmas” duet debuted last night during the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. The best I can say about it is “feel good Christmas music” with a questionably appropriate music video.

has been working hard on launching her singing career, providing guest vocals on other groups’ songs (Cobra Starship’s “Good Girls Go Bad
“) and performing
at the opening of American Eagle’s flagship store in New York City last week. Now, she’s trying to get a holiday song stuck in our heads à la Mariah Carey.
I definitely prefer this seasonal tune to her upcoming album’s first single, “Somebody to Love
“; however, we all have “All I Want for Christmas Is You” in our heads 15 years after it first came out, so I’d say Mariah still holds the top spot. Keep reading »
