No.47 alternative Christmas playlist
Posted on December 14 2016
Want to get in the spirit but can't stand the same old awful songs every year? Don't worry No.47's go you covered.
By now you will have undoubtedly heard the relinquishing drone of Jingle Bells playing over the tannoy in your local supermarket, after all how else would you know what time of year it was...
Back in the 60's and 70's just about everyone did a Christmas album, from Dylan to BB King so here's a playlist of Christmas songs that are sure to get you in the spirit without making you reach for the ear muffs Great Aunt Bessie bought you last year.

2. White Christmas - Otis Reading
3. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer - Ray Charles
4. La Vie En Rose - Louis Armstrong
