Last week we explored our favorite songs from the 2013 crop of holiday releases, For This Week’s Playlist: 360 Holiday Faves we turn back to the standards. Well, sort of. We asked everyone on Team 360 to submit three to five favorite tracks and what we came up with is not your grandma’s Christmas list. Instead it’s a rollicking mix of contemporary and classic, schmaltzy and sweet. We’ve broken the playlist down by contributor, in roughly the order they responded to the email.
