I am on a never-ending quest to compile a really awesome holiday soundtrack. When it comes to Christmas music, I like the unconventional stuff — tunes I won’t hear on every radio station ten times times a day. Below is a list of songs that sound like this season to me, even though they all might not be Christmas songs. And you know what? Lots of them are kind of sad, but Christmas affects me that way sometimes. Take a listen, and let me know what you think.

December – Norah Jones
Something About December – Christina Perri
Love is Chrsitmas – Sara Bareilles
Ave Maria – Beyonce
2000 Miles – Coldplay
Rival – Romeo Santos ft. Mario Domm
Winter Song – Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson
Christmas Waltz – She & Him
Wintersong – Sarah McLachlan
St. Patrick’s Day – John Mayer
I Wish It Was Christmas Today HERE & HERE & HERE – the SNL guys
Christmas Love – Justin Beiber
Donde Esta Santa Clause? – Augie Rios
The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Christina Perri
What’re You Doing New Year’s Eve? – Zooey Dechanel & Joseph Gordon-Levitt
This Is the New Year – A Great Big World
This Year’s Love – David Gray
Auld Lang Syne – Mairi Campbell

Is there any song I left out?

    Great selection! White Winter Hymnal (the Birdy version) is a must on my Christmas playlist.
