Christmas Music! post 1970 only

There’s a xkcd on the origin of almost all the Christmas music that gets over played around the holidays. (Ifn someone wants to link to the xkcd I’d appreciate it). Not interested.

That said, I can’t argue with Greg Lake, the Kinks, or the Pogues.

For a little less often played, here’s a playlist a friend sent me this year. Most is post 70.
