mal wieder was aus meinem beruflichen Blog 🙂
In Germany we have a kind of tradition once the Christmas time is starting – it is getting “gewhamed”. This is like rickrolling, just with “Last Christmas” and happens mostly via mainstream radio or stores – you cannot escape it here.
Every year I try hard but I never suceed. This year was exceptional early (= yesterday), when I started to look at my xmas Spotify playlists and wanted to play the Verve Christmas remix Album – and the Spotify integration for my Sonos was broken. So I switched to Soma.fms radio streams (see below) and some good 8tracks xmas playlists. After Sonos support told me via Twitter I just hit play on an Electro Swing Xmas album on Spotify before checking it first and there it was – “Last Christmas in an electroswing version”!
If you want to avoid Last Christmas, too then see below for the Soma.fm streams.
The main streaming station I will listen too (next to my spotify playlists) will be:
Soma.FM Christmas Lounge http://somafm.com/christmas/directstreamlinks.html
Classic Xmas Lunge songs – all of your favourites are here. To get a quick impression what they play have a look at their Twitter account -there you can see the playlist.
The next station to recommend would be Soma.fm Christmas in Frisco: http://somafm.com/xmasinfrisko/directstreamlinks.html
Not any kind of middle of the road christmas songs, here you will listen to all the strange but interesting versions/songs you could never think of. Some metal versions, some more electronic ones – see yourself the playlist on twitter: https://twitter.com/xmasinfrisko
And finally a new station (at least new for me): Soma.fm Jolly Soul – strictly Soul Christmas songs, no Twitter feed: http://somafm.com/jollysoul/directstreamlinks.html
