Song Stuck In My Head: Basically any Top 40 song on the charts right now. We were listening to radio in my math final exam, so basically Colbie Caillet and Adam Levine and Adele are dancing in my head.
If you’ve been watching commercials on TV, putting on some of your favorite Christmas movies, or even turning on the radio, you probably got some sort of holiday tune dancing in your head like sugar plums. The coolest part about holiday songs is that a lot of modern artists are fans - hence, you get some pretty neat covers and the occasional original.
Here are some Christmas songs to check out by MODERN artists! All of them are rock and pop. There’s also a few random, non-genres thrown in here or there. It may or may not include singing cats. I can’t make any guarantees. ; )
(Do you know any? Feel free to comment, and I'll make one twice as good next year! Muahahaha!)

Have an awesome holiday, peeps. If you can’t guess my New Year’s aspiration, then here it is: to blog more! Ah!
And anyone doing anything interesting for the holidays? New traditions, traveling, etc.? If you go or live somewhere with snow, please oh please ice it and send it my way. We’ve been getting the cold but not the snow. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be, living in a desert town in the middle of nowhere….
Just found that online. The closest I can get to what it's like where I live, haha.
