"Holiday Playlist #3": THE CHRISTMAS WEEKEND MIX
Did you get a tree
No, it's more like a large plant
But it still has balls
The idea is simple.
I wanted to mix ten of my absolute favorite tunes to listen to during the Christmas season and ten of my all time favorite tunes to listen to the rest of the year.
I wasn't shooting for cool. Hence, the inclusion of such heavily rotated tracks by Mariah Carey, Mott The Hoople, The Rascals, and The Pogues.
Please enjoy and try not to yack up your egg nog just because Mariah Carey is represented and not the Fleet Foxes.
