Christmas is just around the corner, but Christmas songs have been in our heads for weeks. If you’re wishing for something else, anything else, you’re not alone.
Fun fact: According to Spotify, Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, Andy Williams, and John Lennon were all among the top 10 songs of 2018 along with Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé.
A Spotify-backed firm called Soundtrack Your Brand polled 2,000 individuals in the US and the UK this fall about their thoughts on Christmas music. It is not at all unexpected to hear that 25% of British and 17% of US consumers “actively” dislike Christmas music. Switching styles isn’t surprising but what do we do about it? Change it up.
Once your popular Christmas song has become a meme for predictability, it’s probably time to try something else. We’re looking at you, Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé. Although this typically is a time for jolly tunes until they start getting repetitive and become a meme that nobody wants to share. Isn’t it time for some quirky Christmas covers? We think so!!

“Holiday music is one of the many things that come together to give people the full and wonderful experience of the season. Decorations, food, gift giving, they all have their part and music is no different,” explains Jason Greiner.
Greiner isn’t the only person to notice the importance and prevalence of Christmas Music. Katherine Wiles explains in an article from MArtkeplace.org, “Christmas music is a major component of the season. And with seemingly every artist putting out a Christmas album (Snoop Dogg’s “Christmas In The Dogghouse” anyone?). It’s a reliable money-maker. After all, the best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
