"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

(Thank you)

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.


God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen- Jimmy Smith
Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday- Jules Shear
Rain- The Beatles
Sunny- Bobby Hebb
Groovin'- The Young Rascals
Sunset & The Mockingbird- Duke Ellington
The Verb To Love- Todd Rundgren
A Shot In The Arm- Wilco
Driving Home For Christmas- Chris Rea
September Song- Tim Laughlin
The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore- The Walker Brothers
Thanks For Christmas- XTC
Blackberry Winter- Keith Jarrett
Elenore- The Turtles
All I Want For Christmas Is You- Mariah Carey
All The Young Dudes- Mott The Hoople
A Merry Jingle- The Greedies
Fairytale Of N.Y.C.- The Pogues w/ Kirsty MacColl
Stardust- Hoagy Carmichael
Merry Christmas Baby- Charles Brown

Fa-La-La-La- ZIP-La La La La

On a serious note,  Merry Christmas to all of you.



I'm diggin the mix Sal!

Happy Christmas!

No need to apologize for Mariah Carey. Whatever you think of her, she did give the world with the best Christmas song ever! Let the outcry begin.

Merry Christmas to you and your family and thanks for all the great music throughout the year.

Merry Christmas Sal (and all the other Burners) always, thanks for the mixes.

No complaints from me for the Mariah. It's a great song, and she does some of her best singing on it as well. I can't sit still when I hear it. (It just came on my computer, following Fiona Apple's "Frosty the Snowman" and the Raveonettes, "Wishing You a Rave Christmas"). No mix is complete w/o Fairytale for me, I just posted it on my FB yesterday as I do every year. Kirsty, wish you were still here writing and singing. Thanks for another great musical gift, Sal. Happy Christmas all.

And a much better New Year, too.
