Xmas Tune: Classic vs Modern

Growing up with Jingle Bells and Rudolph The Red Nose Raindeer and the likes of it, I got tired and bored with all those old classics with traditional churchy feel. I ain’t religious nor I am a church person but my taste of music determines everything, even up to my selection of X’mas songs. I have long revolted and discarded old classic Xmas song with modern R&B/pop X’mas tunes (new and remake). If you are keen for a change, try these tracks below and let new tunes change your Xmas atmosphere via your players.
