Marika Hackman’s Christmas playlist

If you're not in the Christmas spirit, well, maybe avoid this one...

Marika Hackman’s Christmas playlist
Would you like to know when Dork first broke out the mince pies and Mariah Carey this year? Here’s a clue: it wasn’t December. And it wasn’t November, either. Warm up some mulled cider and join in the fun with Marika Hackman’s festive playlist.

Destiny's Child - 8 Days Of Christmas
It's pure noughties sass, which is a nice antithesis to the constant cheesy holiday cheer.

Sufjan Stevens - O Come O Come Emmanuel
My favourite carol done in such a heartbreaking style, yet it still feels cosy and nostalgic.

John Tavener - The Lamb
Mum's always played this at Christmas, and now it's one of my favourite pieces of choral music, makes you feel like you're being stretched and squeezed.

Wham - Last Christmas
Makes me feel like I’m at a shit office Christmas party, in a good way.

Joni Mitchell - River
Christmas is crap if you've just broken up, but at least there’s a beautiful song about it.

The Ronettes - Frosty The Snowman
This is probably the most Christmassy song ever recorded, it would make me excited for Christmas in spring.

Blaenavon - Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End)
This is such a heartfelt take on a ridiculous song, it makes me feel like it’s snowing outside.

The Pogues - Fairytale Of New York
First half is all drunken hilarity, second half is fucking depressing. Pretty much sums up Christmas.

Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas
I heard it was Jesus's favourite song.



(Blaenavon's Christmas ditty doesn't appear to be on Spotify, but you can hear that here.)

Marika Hackman’s Christmas EP ‘Wonderland’ is out now.
