Fa la la la la, and all that jazz. Getting tired of holiday music? We're not. Well, that's not entirely true. We're well tired of the lousy, saccharine, abominable Christmas music that clogs the airwaves. Is it worse when a radio station switches over to all-Xmas-all-the-time, or when a radio station ambushes you every three or four songs with a holiday tune? We're not sure.
But it's not all bad. (Really.) As we here at Up On the Sun have detailed in our weekly "Christmas Songs That Don't Suck" feature -- check out Part I and Part II -- there are diamonds out there amongst the muck. Here are a few more winners.
The Killers, "The Cowboy's Christmas Ball"
This Vegas band has released a holiday tune every year for the past six years, with proceeds going to charity. This year's number's catchy as heck, and the retro video is a winner.
