Ah, the Christmas season! A time to get drunk on warm spiked beverages, spend tons of money on people who don’t deserve it, and, of course, sing along to some of those classic Christmas JaMZ. And while there are technically eleven days ’til the holiday (I wanted to get this up last night but technical difficulties prevented that from happening) we at AVERSE have decided to celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas our own way: by highlighting twelve of the best Christmas songs ever written. Today’s your lucky day– a twofer! The theme for today is “somber” with one classic jam, and one a bit less well known below the cut.
