Playlist: Coldplay Songs For Every Moment During The Holidays

Evangeline Axiotis
Evangeline Axiotis goes by many nicknames, (mainly inappropriate ones), but most people know her as a music festival junkie. She's currently going through a quarter-life crisis. Her biggest supporter is her dad who constantly reminds her that raving is not a real job - but she hopes to change that soon. She can also recite any Biggie Smalls song by heart.

Christmas songs — you either love ‘em or you hate ‘em, right? Sure, everyone likes a jolly good time, but having to listen to a tune that, literally, tells you to be “bright” and “merry,” well, it can be as annoying as someone telling you to smile if you’re not in the mood for it.

There is, however, something that everyone loves, and that’s Coldplay. Whether you’ve admitted it to yourself or not, Coldplay reigns supreme in the Land of Feels, with a repertoire so versatile they’ve literally made a melody for every emotion.

I recently downloaded their latest album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” which isn’t bad, but to be honest, it mostly just made me nostalgic for the Coldplay jams of yesteryear. Why not, though? After all, they’ve pretty much supplied the soundtrack to our lives.

Therefore, this Christmas, treat yourself: Ditch the traditional jolly jingles, and trade them in for a Coldplay playlist that is the literal perfect soundtrack for the holiday.

That’s right, have yourself a merry Coldplay Christmas, you hip, emo millennial.
