Holly Hays, of the Indianapolis Star might be considered a lunatic. But...if you're reading this site, then you'll be happy to know that Holly is just.like.all.of.us. Except she admits that she listens to Christmas music the entire year.
From Holly's piece:
October is officially over, marking the unofficial start of the holiday season. And we've put together the perfect playlist to help get you in the holiday spirit.
And who better to assemble a premature holiday playlist than someone who listens to Christmas music all year? That's right. I, Holly Hays, being of sound mind and filled with Christmas cheer, listen to Holiday Jamz in July. And August. And whenever I darn well please.
We've embedded it below and it is …
News today in Rolling Stone is that enigmatic 'star' Sia is coming out with a Christmas record. Of original songs. But, fortunately, it isn't coming out until later this year. When we all know listening to Christmas music is more appropriate.
Sia announced plans on Tuesday to record her first Christmas album. The LP will be her first release through Atlantic Records – a new home for the singer after a pair of successful albums with RCA.
All the songs on Sia's Christmas LP will be originals composed with help from Greg Kurstin. Kurstin, an in-demand Top 40 savant (Adele, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson), previously worked with Sia on her last three albums and served as producer or co-producer on the singer's biggest solo hits: "Cheap Thrills," "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart."
Originals? Really? I guess that's courageous, right? Based on her career, we should give it the benefit of the doubt, right?
