Ten Christmas Songs You Won’t Hear on the Radio

There’s a local radio station in metro-Detroit that starts playing Christmas music before Thanksgiving. I hope I’m wrong, but they may even play some before Halloween. First off, I don’t know how anyone could like x-mas enough to “get in the spirit” that early. Secondly, they play the same bunch of songs the entire two months. There are so many Christmas songs, yet every time I pass the station on the radio, I hear one of twenty songs. Seriously, we can do better than Alvin & the Chipmunks five times a day. Here are ten songs you may or may not have heard, which somehow missed the cut of the radio station’s playlist. These are in no particular order.
