Set a Holiday Vibe With Drum & Lace Music's Festive Playlist

Set a Holiday Vibe With Drum & Lace Music's Festive Playlist

"Christmas is definitely my most musically diverse time of year. It's the one time when I feel like my tastes are literally all over the place, artist-wise; a time when I ask myself, "Am I really listening to Micheal Bublé right now?" That said, I present you this list featuring some recent holiday-inspired favorites, like LA band Dear Boy's "Cold Spell" and Kelly Clarkson's "Underneath the Christmas Tree," as well as some classics including "Merry Christmas (I Don't Wanna Fight Anymore)" by The Ramones and "Jingle Bell" by Bobby Helms (which is also featured in Home Alone, a holiday mainstay). 

Have this be your companion as you wrap last-minute presents, have your second glass of mulled wine in the afternoon (because, holidays), or sit in your childhood bedroom Facebook stalking old high school friends that you're bound to bump into while you're home. Enjoy the playlist, dance around to Mariah for me, and have a happy holiday!" -Sofia Hultquist, Drum & Lace Music
