Top 10 Christmas songs to have on your playlist by Iko Chérie

 

We have asked our lovely friend Marie from the band Iko Chérie her 10 favourite Christmas songs, and here they are, enjoy a fabulous selection!! 

( BTW She just got her first album out, and it's a beauty! Check it out here!)

 

 

 

 

Christmas Time Is Here – Vince Guaraldi 

'We start with this song from A Charlie Brown Christmas, it’s beautiful and very sweet, but at the same time a little bit melancholic, just like Christmas! It’s worth watching this Peanuts video clip with Snoopy ice skating!'

 

 

 

Blue Christmas - Lisbonne

'A cover from a classic I did a while ago with my former project Lisbonne. It was recorded over one silent night in Brixton on an 8 track tape recorder.'

 

 

 

Santa Baby Eartha Kitt

'I thought for a long time that Marilyn Monroe had sung this song and apparently she never did! But this version by Eartha Kitt is cheeky and great.'

 

 

 

The Beatles christmas Time is Here Again

'The Beatles chant the same sentence throughout in this song, before getting into some surrealistic lyrics at the end... I dig it!'

 

 

 

I’ll Be Stoned For Christmas - Dent May

'The amazing Dent May released this super cool track a year ago. It’s been one of my favourite on the Christmas jukebox, sorry mamma...'

 

 

Christmas Makes Me Blue - Simone White

Because Christmas can be a little depressing sometimes and no one says it quite as well as Simone White.

 

 

Alone On Christmas Day – Phoenix

A seasonal treat from Phoenix, featuring Bill Murray! This is a cover of a Beach Boys track and Bill Murray is a cool singer.

 

 

 

 

Merry Christmas Baby – The Beach Boys

Brian Wilson talks his girlfriend into getting back with him for Christmas, with such a beautiful song, how could you say no?

 

 

 

 

Just like Xmas - Low

Quintessential Christmas beauty, which is not about Christmas, but about the magic feeling of it!

 

 

 

 

Thanks Marie :)
