Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog Podcast #027 – Christmas Is Cancelled

Personally I’m a fan of Christmas, but I couldn’t help but notice that lots of people like to complain about it. They may well be right. It’s quite commercialised and it starts too early – these seem to be indisputable facts. All the same, though, it’s a cliché to be cynical about the whole thing. There are lots of people who enjoy it a great deal, and if you don’t want to join in with it all then spoiling their fun seems mean and petty. Why not listen to this selection of anti-festive songs instead?

1. The Fall – No Xmas For John Quays
2. Cristina – Things Fall Apart
3. The Kinks – Father Christmas
4. John Lennon – Cold Turkey
5. Loudon Wainwright III – Conspiracies
6. The Sonics – Don’t Believe In Christmas
7. Sufjan Stevens – That Was The Worst Christmas Ever!
8. Joni Mitchell – River
9. Tom Waits – Christmas Cards From A Hooker In Minneapolis
10. Low – Just Like Christmas
11. The Long Blondes – Christmas Is Cancelled
12. Half Man Half Biscuit – It’s Clichéd To Be Cynical At Christmas

Bonus tracks (after the gap):

Kunt & The Gang – All I Want For Christmas Is You (To Bring Me Off)
Mr Garrison – Merry Fucking Christmas
