lennonxmasThe days are fast counting down to Christmas and Hanukkah is in full swing. Some of you are probably putting together your own special Christmas and holiday playlist mixes for your iTunes, iPod or to share with friends and family.

Therefore, here's another batch of interesting alternative Xmas songs to check out, in addition to the huge 12 mix collection we already published back in 2007, now available on a special page which has seen over 40,000 hits in just three weeks!

This mix includes some of the best Christmas songs we haven't published before (with just a few exceptions), including a "Christmasy" song from Band of Horses (even though the song title doesn't indicate so). There will be one more mega-mix coming up tomorrow.

"Happy XMas (War is Over)" - John Lennon

"Come on Santa" - The Raveonettes

"The First Song" - Band of Horses

"Christmas at the Zoo" - The Flaming Lips

"Ghost of Christmas" - Manic Street Preachers

"Christmas Is Coming Soon" - Blitzen Trapper

"Believe In Me" - Fun

"O Come Emmanuel" - Belle & Sebastian

"We Three Kings" - Blondie

"Silent Night" - The Briggs

Listen to and download more than 150 additional Christmas and holiday songs - perfect for making your own playlists to play for family and friends this holiday season.
