A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind: Super-special holiday songs edition!

Kanye West featuring Cam'ron, Jim Jones, CyHi Da Prynce, Pusha T, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor and Musiq Soulchild: "Christmas in Harlem"

Chaotic, star-studded and utterly fantastic, this exercise in early hip-hop nostalgia is West's 2010 parting gift.

The Futureheads: "Christmas Was Better in the '80s"

They're right, you know.

Deer Tick: "Christmas All Summer Long"

Deer Tick go punkabilly on this more-amped-than-usual holiday track.

The Killers: "Boots"

Brandon Flowers and Co. put their hiatus on hold to record their annual holiday song for Bono's RED charity. Under the tree this year: bombast, sentiment and awesomeness.

Lady Moet Beast & D.C. Ty the Monster: "Bad Santa"

How is Santa like the Jolie-Pitts? According to the District's finest rapping couple, he rolls with an eight-deep security team in a black Suburban. Except his bodyguards are elves, so it's probably a little different.

Beach House: "I Do Not Care for the Winter Sun"

Because not all holiday songs have to be cheerful.
