Last year I put together a mixed tape in honour of that oft-neglected sub genre of seasonal hits - the christmas song for the clinically depressed.
The playlist included (among many others) Please Daddy Don't Get Drunk this Christmas by John Denver, Don't Shoot Me Santa by the Killers, That Was the Worst Christmas Ever by Sufjan Stevens and this classic from my man Tom.
Enjoy. Or don't.
