iSpy: A not-so-typical Christmas playlist, Part 1

Sunday, December 15, 2013   by: Donna Hopper

We at SooToday.com know our savvy readers love to celebrate the holiday season with a healthy dose of Christmas classics.

There's no denying the charm and appeal of Nat King Cole's The Christmas Song, the Vienna Boys' Choir's version of Silent Night, or Bing Crosby's White Christmas, which according to Guinness is the top-selling single of all time.

However, we're here to help you round out and beef up your Christmas playlist with a few new, obscure and/or not-so-typical holiday selections, including those from Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin and Jack Johnson.

We invite you to preview the songs here, or click each title to view it in iTunes.

Have any obscure holiday favourites?

List them in the comment section below for others to discover.

Enjoy, and happy holidays!

16-year-old Sean Quigley from Winnipeg. This version of drummer boy he did ended up going viral.

Sean played all the instruments, sang the vocals, recorded everything and directed and edited the video.

Not really a Christmas song, but a beautiful voice and song nonetheless.

Why not post local music as opposed to regurgitated Itunes crap?
