Well all know the standard Christmas songs. We know them and we know them all too well. That's why it's important to infuse some fresh stuff in there amid all those "classics" you hear on loop over tinny department store speakers. Sufjan Steven's "Get Behind Me, Santa" is one of those great alternatives.

Off Songs for Christmas, "Get Behind Me, Santa" is just the right amount of parody, at once criticizing Santa's rather questionable practice of breaking into homes and still defending him as "just a regular guy" who happens to have superpowers and like the holidays. And it's also just a great song, which is also important. And the lights show, consider that just a bonus. [Spotify, Amazon, iTunes]
