OUR 2017 CHRISTMAS PLAYLIST

 

These are the tunes we have on repeat at The Good Life Experience HQ. Every single one is a classic, and the perfect playlist for your journey home on Christmas Eve (or the 22nd as it is this year).

The Pearlfishers | Snowboardin’
A largely undiscovered classic. Try getting this out of your head.

Wham! | Last Christmas.
Total cheese/total brilliance.

Joni Mitchell | River.
Melancholy and beautiful. And any song that mentions ‘cutting down trees’ is good by us.

Elvis Presley | Lonely this Christmas.
Melodrama, melancholy and that voice.

Slade | Merry Xmas Everybody.
Of course.

Tom Waits | Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis.
Let’s dial down the cheese for a moment and play some Tom Waits.

Pogues | Fairytale of New York.
Still great after THIRTY years.

Eels | Everything’s Gonna be Cool this Christmas. 

 

Quite a good song but we were reminded recently how good Eels were. Oh, and the book Mark Everett (the singer) wrote Things The Grandchildren Should Know is truly wonderful.

Dean Martin | Let it Snow….
The best version of one of the best songs.

Happy Xmas (War is Over) | John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Good song. Bucket loads of optimism.

Chris Rea | Driving Home for Christmas.
Because the notion and lyrics genuinely resonate; call me sentimental.

Jona Lewie | Stop the Cavalry.
A total classic (play alongside ‘You’ll Always Find me in the Kitchen at Parties’).

Band Aid | Do They Know It’s Christmas.
Great song, huge influence.

Here's the playlist for you.

A weekend of discovery + adventure, music, food, books + the great outdoors
