Ahhhh, the holiday season. Everyone seems to be a little bit happier, we’re hopeful it snows, and we get to listen to our favorite Christmas tunes.

Do you ever turn on the radio and feel like you’re hearing the same ol’ songs? Us too. That’s why we’ve pulled out some of our less-commercial favorites to spin this year.

The funky deck the halls track is fit for any holiday gathering. It makes you want to get up and dance, to fully enjoy the holiday season. It’s a unique take on the song. On side B, you’ll have to order the record to listen! You won’t find any sound clips online.

Arlington Sylvester-A Christmas Carol/Crescent Legacy-I’m Gonna Miss You

A Side: Arlington Sylvester-Merry Christmas Baby

B Side: Crescent Legacy-I’m Gonna Miss You

Not all Christmas songs need to be booming with joy. A Christmas Carol makes gives a bit of a somber and reflective feeling. On the other hand, I’m gonna Miss You is funky and enjoyable to listen to. The subject matter however, offers a hint of sadness.
