Stingray Music’s free-to-listen holiday channels will be perfect for every occasion, from rocking around the Christmas tree to those quiet winter nights sat around the fire. The channels range from Best Christmas Songs of All Time, the only playlist you’ll need this Christmas with favourites like Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” and Wham!’s “Last Christmas”, to Christmas Party and the nostalgic classics of Holiday Crooners.
For a truly unique soundtrack to your holiday this year, why not explore the dozens of specialist channels, each catering for every kind of music fan. A Very Punk-Rock Christmas — featuring “I want you for Christmas” from Cheap Trick — will have everyone head-banging at the dinner table, or get yourself moving with Soulful Holiday, including Aretha Franklin’s “Winter Wonderland”.
