I am making an alternative Christmas CD. As in alternative I mean fairly modern, like not Sinatra or Amy Grant or whatever.
Please direct me to modern covers, or even originals, from any genre that relate to christmas. I can only find a few on my own.
So here's to living life miserable.
And here's to all the lonely stories that I've told.
Maybe drinking wine will validate my sorrow.
Every man needs a muse and mine could be the bottle.

Even though you want fairly modern I'm going to recommend A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector. That is such a classic album.
