5 Christmas Songs That Rock
5.) Enuff Z’Nuff – Happy Holiday
A festive number from this great Chicago band. This song was actually written for the movie Home Alone 2 but for some reason didn’t make it into the soundtrack, but It should have.
4. ) The Darkness – This Is Christmas Time
This song makes me wish it was Christmas every day! with some great lyrics like “ sugar plum fairies will dance on your grave” It does not get any more rock n roll then that.
3.) Joan Jett – Little Drummer Boy
Being a drummer myself I have always had a soft spot for this song, in any arrangement. The song’s message is what Christmas is all about, tis better to give than receive or It’s the thought that counts. It helps to have some guitar riffs to go along with the little drummer boy, and Joan Jett singing helps too
2.) John Lennon – Happy Christmas, War is Over
A great song by an amazing person. For me this song puts everything into perspective when I am stuck in traffic trying to get to the mall! These words are possibly the best Christmas song lyrics ever, “Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fear.”
1.) The Kinks – Father Christmas
My personal favorite. You have drum rolls, classic Kinks guitar riffs and funny lyrics but with a serious message as well. “ Remember the kids who got nothing, when you’re drinking down your wine”. For me this is a must have for those who want to rock on Christmas, the jingle bells in the beginning had me from the beginning. So Merry Christmas everybody.
