The ideal holiday playlist should not be solely upbeat or romantic. You must ensure that there are songs for everyone, including those of us who are just plain Grinchy about the entire holiday season. The ideal Christmas includes some highs and lows, as well as some rock and rolls Christmas songs. However, guitar gods ranging from Chuck Berry and Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen have successfully livened up the otherwise staid proceedings, or at the very least given the tunes more personality. Meanwhile, other rockers have simply gotten weird with things.
