Christmas music for misanthropes and weirdos

User Rating: / 0
I know we recently discussed "not especially joyful" Christmas music. Great! I want actively miserable or screwy Christmas music. Think Sufjan's "Christmas Unicorn" (the final third is a cover of "Love Will Tear Us Apart", the middle third is EDM, and the first third is cynical musings). Think "A Christmas Duel" by The Hives and Cyndi Lauper (NSFW, opening lines: "I bought no gifts this year / and I slept with your sister", and it escalates from there). Think the delightful, absurd cacophany of All I Want for Christmas is Midi. Any recs? Also on my list:

Martha Wainwright's "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year"
Laura Marling's "Goodbye England"
"All I Want for Christmas is New Year's Day"
