The Christmas Song – The Raveonettes
Hauntingly beautiful, yet strangely perky, the Danish duo’s Christmas song really captures the contrasting emotions of the season: the sense of wonder, a hint of sadness at another year passed, and wanting time to last forever. With electric guitar and vocals tingling over a strong drumbeat, The Christmas Song pulls off the rare trick of combining the more thoughtful side of the season with its sense of excitement and fun.
