Are you tired of the old Christmas songs sounding like a broken record? Do you think Wham’s Last Christmas is as dead as the cold turkey?
Exeposé Music brings you a definitive playlist to spice up Xmas proceedings.
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs kick off in style with a heavy cover of one of the most popular songs at this time of year.
Thom Yorke, recently voted Exeter’s favourite alumnus, isn’t a name you would associate with festive frolics. But he delivers a warming rendition of this Christmas classic.
American alternative band Jimmy Eat World rock around the christmas tree with a cover of an xmas staple.
Lindsey Buckingham’s ‘Holiday Road’ gets The Walkmen treatment. A tune to get you off that sofa and shuffling in your brand new slippers.
Perhaps the most obvious title of the bunch, Weezer deliver a heavy track true to their roots. We wish all Weezer songs were soaked in this much melancholy grunge.
Not one for the grandparents, Eazy E reimagines the Christmas narrative with characteristic old school barbarity.
Run DMC pick up from where Eazy E left off with an x-rated xmas banger.
A change in tone as Badly Drawn Boy delivers a modern pop classic full of optimism and Christmas cheer.
Sufjan Stevens produce a delightful pithy track crying out for a happy family sing-along session.
The Flaming Lips complete our festive playlist with a weird and wonderful xmas track full of whimsy and psychedelic feeling.
