I take my Christmas music very seriously.
Last year I compiled The Ultimate Christmas Playlist Volume 1, 20 of my top Christmas song selections from a wide variety of genres, styles, and artists. I decided to rename it “The Ultimate Christmas Mixtape” to emphasise the limitation to 20, carefully curated tunes.
Without further ado, I give you The Ultimate Christmas Mixtape Volume 2, featuring another stellar collection of songs, from the Beach Boys to Bowling for Soup to Broadway.
Enjoy, and merry Christmas!
