New Songs on a Sunday Afternoon (501-540)

As part of my ongoing effort to improve the range of my cultural consumption, I'm casting out for new things to listen to. Part one and an explanation of this musical escapade can be found here. You'll need to search for the rest yourselves.

Throughout December, most of these songs are going to be of the festive variety. I'm spreading Christmas cheer around our house and Lovely Husband would kill me if I turned our home into Target with Mariah Carey on repeat all day.

I've been listening to Angela Hardison's ready-made 'Good Tidings of Good Noise' collection from 2010. It's all set up to listen to over here and here, so I won't be linking my list below. Some are covers but there are quite a few originals in here that I'm liking more than I thought I would. I've added an extra to the end 
because I've heard John Lennon a million times already.
