With all the legal mumbo jumbo out of the way, let's listen to some tunes and try to get into the holiday spirit, okay?
- "Christmas Time Is Here", Chomsky
- "Waiting on Christmas", The Adventures of Jet
I suppose I could do a Christmas playlist and not feature any tunes from Electric Ornaments, but it just wouldn't be right. Here are two of my faves from the CD.
- "My Christmas List", Scott Riegel
I first saw Mr. Riegel perform at Bryan Street Tavern along with The O's and Whiskey Glass Eye (aka Slobberbone), and there's a certain charm to this 17 year old musician that has me highly curious about where he'll go next musically. For now, enjoy this fun acoustic Christmas ditty.
- "What I Always Wanted", Chris Holt
- "Christmas (Doesn't Have to Be So Bad)", THe BAcksliders
I'm lacking anything witty or insightful to say. I like Chris Holt. I like THe BAcksliders. I like these songs. Ok, on to the next song...
- "Merry Christmas Now", Rahim Quazi
I hope everyone has enjoyed my gift of the Rahim Quazi mp3's. What, you haven't downloaded the tracks yet? Click here and get yourself some good tunes.
- "Winter Wonderland in Dub", Clay Pendergrass
This is admittedly a rather long track, but I recommend sitting yourself down, relaxing, and allow yourself the time to appreciate this hypnotic gem from Mr. Pendergrass.
- "Here It Is Christmas Time", Old 97's
Dear Santa, I've been a good blogger (for the most part). Could you leave me a pair of Old 97's New Year's Eve tickets in my stocking?
- "Santa Baby", Smile Smile
- "Silent Night", Smile Smile
Smile Smile has had quite a good year, and Truth on Tape was easily one of my favorite CDs of the year. I figured it'd be nice to have a double dose of Smile Smile.
- "Run Rudolph Run", Reverend Horton Heat
Definitely one of the most rocking local music Christmas tunes ever. One would expect no less from The Rev.
- "Christmas Eve", Salim Nourallah
There's nothing that'll get someone into the Christmas spirit than hearing Salim sing "Why can't we cheat death?". Merry Christmas!!!
- "Christmas Time", Black Tie Dynasty
After that last track, I figured it was either hand out Prozacs or let you hear this song. For my money, this tune is the ultimate Christmas party song. Turn it up everyone, you'll know it's Christmas time because you won't be able to fight it.
