D Magazine’s Holiday Spotify Playlist Melts Your Christmas Candy, and Your Faces

We’ve seen a bunch of news organizations, locally and nationally, putting together their annual Christmas playlists recently. They were great! Bing Crosby, Wham!, more stuff you’ve likely wanted to off yourselves to while counting down the hours til you can leave Aunt Sally’s.

So Peter, Zac, Mosley, and I put our sad, Christmas-hating heads together and came up with a new playlist, one that will hopefully make you want to punch through a gingerbread house. Or at least make you drink enough so “A Britney Spears Christmas” doesn’t make you burn down Aunt Sally’s split-level ranch.

The whole Spotify playlist is embedded over on FrontRow. Hint: Black Flag, Tom Waits, the Flaming Lips, and Dipset.

    Holy smoke, look at that Santa’s eyes — his stoned appearance might make a state trooper think, “Hell, I better shove my hand into that right jolly ol’ blank-eyed elf’s pants.”

    Can we pipe this through the lobby?

      I’m sure Jerry would love that.

    Or even just our reception. Jazz it up a little.
