Normally on Black Friday I pull out all of my Christmas music from years past and que them up on the CD player to play 24/7 until Christmas Day. This year, however, my husband begged me to reconsider this tradition. Not wanting to be without tunes to reflect the season though I went online to see if I could find something less cheerful, gleeful and twinkly that we could both enjoy.
Lo and Behold - I found Scrooge Tunes on Yahoo Music's radio channel. Packed with a variety of music from rock to jazz, country ballads and indie spoofs; there is defiantly a little something for everyone. The great thing is that if you don't listen to the lyrics the music it sounds like any other Christmas station, which feeds my desire for holiday cheer. A close ear can pick up the tales of burning Christmas trees, battered carolers and drunken reindeer.
Here's the link if you would like to give it a go:

Be warned that much of this music is not workplace, child or church friendly. Enjoy!!
