TB_HQ’s Eclectistmas Playlist
We’re music fans here at TB_HQ and the radio is always on (although its rare we’ll agree on which station to tune in to!) but at this time of year, when pretty much every station defaults to the standard roster of festive classics, we’re all in agreement that as great as Slade, Band Aid, Wham! et al are, there’s only so much repetition you can stomach after the first week of December when all the usual suspects have already been played to death.
So, this year (to save us from tears) we put our heads together and came up with our favourite alternative, eclectic and generally less well known Christmas ditties that get us feeling festive in the office without the urge to throw the radio out the window.
If you’re just about to start that last round of pressie wrapping, or super organised and already winding down ready to kick back for the holidays, we hope this’ll help you get in the mood for the most wonderful time of the year!
We present to you TB_HQ’s Eclectistmas Playlist 2017
(and don’t worry, we managed to slip a couple of Christmas guilty pleasures in there to keep everyone happy…)
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a most Happy New Year from all of us here at TB_HQ, see you in 2018!
