Adam Clayton’s Christmas Playlist for Drake’s

Original Story by Aaron J. Sams (2020-12-11)

Adam Clayton has chosen a number of tracks for an “Alternative Christmas Playlist” for the men’s clothing and accessories store, Drake’s. The playlist, posted on December 9, was chosen by Adam, and features twenty-six songs.

Of the playlist, and the year, Adam says, “When I started to think about this alternative Christmas playlist I had to begin with the idea that this will be a truly alternative Christmas, coming at the end of a challenging year. So, no Pogues, Slade, Lennon or McCartney. What sort of mood will we be in for December? Will we be suppressing an urge to party like it’s 1999, or will we be more stoic and accepting that the Grinch has stolen Christmas? Whatever it is, I hope you will sit back and enjoy this alternative soundtrack to what will undoubtedly be a memorable Christmas.”
