There ain’t nothing like putting on the ol’ Sounds of the Season station when the clock strikes midnight on November 1st. The voices of Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, and more are dripping in nostalgia for the picturesque, Hallmark holiday season we so often dream of having, but, in reality, never really do. Time to try something a bit different and tune your ears to the sounds of holiday pop.
This year, the queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race made an album appropriately called Christmas Queens that’s filled with enough old and new hits to lip sync your heart out to. According to Alaska Thunderfuck, “It has tons of original holiday hits (like ‘Slay Bells’ by Manila Luzon and ‘Ratchet Christmas’ by Jiggly Caliente), plus old classics reimagined—all performed by cross dressing men!” Fabulous! We reached out to some of the queens to know more about their favorite holiday turn ups. (Thunderfuck’s include ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ by Cher and a heavily auto tuned Rosie O'Donnell.) The answers (and playlist!) are pretty amazing and guaranteed to make your holiday party, as Thunderfuck told us, “fleek'd for filth.”
