David Byrne Shares Christmas Playlist Featuring The Pogues, Phoebe Bridgers & More

Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has shared a curated Christmas playlist which features The Pogues, Phoebe Bridgers and more.

Created as part of NPR‘s “Fresh Air” series, the 19-track playlist features multiple different genres. Byrne described the playlist as “something that will bring a little joy to the holidays.”

While speaking to NPR, Byrne explained the reason why Talking Heads never wanted to make a holiday album.

“On one hand, Christmas songs are perennial . so you’re kind of you’re set for your song royalties or whatever,” he said. “But if it doesn’t click, you’ve just got this embarrassing thing.”

The playlist features The Pogues’ “Fairytale Of New York,” Paul Simon‘s “Getting Ready for Christmas Day,” Bridgers’ “If We Make It Through December,” LCD Soundsytem‘s “Christmas Will Break Your Heart,” James Brown‘s “Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto,” 100 Gecs‘ “Sympathy 4 The Grinch,” Gaby Moreno‘s “Mi Burrito Sabanero,” Sabrina Carpenter‘s “Santa Doesn’t Know You Like I Do” and more.
