For a country that has the misfortunate seasonal quirk of having their summer when Christmas comes around there still manages to be an almost endless supply of Australian Christmas songs. Perhaps it’s the creativity that ensues from the pleasure of having your Christmas dinner on the beach or perhaps it’s the plain old worldwide appeal of the season no matter what the weather is like outside. Whether it be a boy band from Down Under (Human Nature) or one of Oz’s most well-known personalities (Rolf Harris) it seems that everyone from the continent who has had access to a studio has left a Christmas pressie for us.

Kylie Minogue is Australia's most famous female singer with a list of number ones that stretch all the way back to the eighties. She has gone from teen idol to indie chick to pop princess so was it any surprise that she tried to outdo Eartha in 2000 with her alluring take of ‘Santa Baby’? Sixties legends the Seekers know all about longevity (they are famously the only band from back then who scored a number 1 and have retained same lineup) and 4 decades after they were founded they recorded a folky Christmas record called ‘Morningtown Ride To Christmas’ which included the gently strum of ‘There Are No Lights On Our Christmas Tree’. A lot more rocking are Sydney band Jet who turned Clarence Carter’s bluesy ‘Back Door Santa’ into a raging hormone of a Christmas tune. It’s quite the rarity but boy does it blow most Christmas songs out of the water. The Avalanches similarly leave their mark with a Doors like psychedelic epic version of ‘Sleigh Ride’, I want what they are on.

After all the excess there are plenty of Australian Christmas carols on this playlist but Rebecca St. James’s wonderfully euphoric version of ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’ offers the perfect segue to the more traditional standards. And they don’t get more religious or Australian than ‘Carol of The Birds’ which is here performed by the Sydney Philharmonia Motet Choir. ‘Santa Never Made it Into Darwin’ is equally thought provoking having been released in the wake of a Cyclone Tracy which flattened Darwin and killed over 70 of its residents on Christmas Day 1974.
