No holiday season is complete without iconic Christmas tunes. SCHS students and staff have a wide variety of preferences when it comes to holiday music that includes a mix of chart-topping hits, never-before-listened, and the oldies-but-goldies, and many were willing to explain why their favorite song appealed to them.  Based on recommendations, Roxy Lockard, journalism staff reporter created a playlist that reflects what is being listened to in December.  You can listen to the playlist here: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5ee2rs6Az3AzNSvF9PsOkI

Sometimes, soothing Christmas carols and sappy love songs can get a little boring. Run-DMC’s rap and hip-hop fueled Christmas song provides a new excitement to your listening list!

“It reminds me of Christmas specials when I was a kid.”

“Yule Shoot Your Eye Out”- Fall Out Boy (2017)

When you think of Christmas artists, the pop punk band Fall Out Boy is the last to come to mind. However, their alternative rock take on Christmas music shatters all expectations of your typical holiday romance song.

“Frosty the Snowman, all the way. It’s such a classic- everyone can relate to it. If you go outside and make a snowman, it’s what you think of.”

A fond choir favorite, Pentatonix’s lovely cover of the Fleet Foxes song blends haunting lyrics, rhythmic clapping, and melodious acapella into a unexpected holiday song.

“O Holy Night”- Church Choirs or Celine Dion (1998)

“As far back as I can remember, it has always been sung at my church’s Christmas Eve services. It just feels like Christmas has arrived when I hear this song.”

“You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”- Thurl Ravenscroft (1966) or Tyler the Creator (2018)
