Happy Christmas infidel readers! As Revolver nears its 6th year anniversary, we’d like to spice playlists up.

The best part about Christmas is the music of course (RIP George Michael). While malls can provide you with traditional holiday songs, we’re here to give you the same vibe – if you don’t actually care about the lyrics.

Stream the Spotify and YouTube playlists below for songs that are Christmas-sy but not really about Christmas.
