“Season of Strangeness” Playlist by Richard F. Yates

season of strangeness - (peg)

Most folks either love Christmas music, or they hate it. Some people are disgusted by the sentiment, turned off by the fact that the tunes are old and recycled and EVERYWHERE, but some of us, who enjoy the holidays but also love NOVELTY, have found a happy medium, a place where the EXPERIENCE of CHRISTMAS mixes with a LOVE OF WEIRDNESS. Welcome to the “Season of Strangeness” playlist, which includes punk Christmas songs, techno and dub holiday tunes, hip hop and classic rock cuts, intriguing covers of well-known festive faves, and of course, some just downright ODDBALL sounds… Hopefully, you’ll find a track or two here that you haven’t heard before and, maybe, something you even enjoy!
