Sufjan Stevens – Songs for Christmas.

I always want to listen to festive music in December, but not necessarily Christmas songs. Although I do love a bit of Elton's Step into Christmas. And I can never resist Happy Xmas (War is Over). OK, I love Christmas songs.

Sufjan Steven's music is so sweet and twinkly, it always makes me feel festive. Especially, obviously, his Songs for Christmas, with awesome song titles like Hey Guys! It's Christmas Time! and Did I Make You Cry On Christmas? (Well, You Deserved It!).

And isn't he just so cute and crazy looking? I've been lame and not heard his new album yet, what's it like?

  1. Dear Caroline, Happy Christmas (War is Over) is a great song. Another favourite is Fairytale of New York. Hope you're good xx

  2. I do like Surfjan Stevens but sorry I've been lame too - might buy the new album for Mr TNMA for Christmas (and yes, I still buy CDs!)

  3. The 2009 album (the B.Q.E) is quite... ummm... mad. And instrumental. Interesting but a bit of a break. Love this Christmas shot, so sweet.

  5. Agree! I downloaded some of his Xmas stuff last year just to stop me listening to The Wombats' It's Christmas song over and over again!

  6. His new album's great. The last song is an epic but really grows on you after a few listens, really eclectic and great. I really want to see him live!
