A Christmas Playlist From Scandal's Music Supervisor
In the spirit of the season, we asked accomplished Hollywood music supervisor and owner of Chop Shop Music Supervision Alexandra Patsavas to create a special Christmas playlist for Domaine. Patsavas has produced beloved soundtracks for The OC, Gossip Girl, Twilight, Scandal, The Carrie Diaries, The Hunger Games (and Catching Fire), and numerous other notable series and films; needless to say, we're thrilled she obliged. "It is so difficult to put together a concise and focused list of Christmas songs," Patsavas says. "More than any other playlist, holiday tracks harken back to sentiment and memories, and of course we all have our special collection." To that end, Patsavas has included some of her favourite artists (namely Harry Nilsson, The Ramones, and Family Of The Year), as well as "seasonal standards sung by Julie London and Dean Martin and some unexpected versions done in Bossanova or deftly arranged by the talented and original Les Baxter." Her favourite Christmas album, A Charlie Brown Christmas, was included in full in the playlist: "Guaraldi's tunes are like a warm fire and a stocking full of loot," she says. Turn up the volume and play our Christmas playlist via Spotify below or add it to your Spotify arsenal here. Enjoy!
