"Oh Joy #1" : THE WEEKEND MIX
This is the first of a few planned holiday-related mixes. Like years before, the mixes I enjoy compiling and posting aren't filled exclusively with tunes about Christmas specifically. Some have nothing at all to do with the holiday. It's how I like it. Keeps me less cranky. Less twitchy. I love Christmas music. All of it. The big hymns. Anything with sleigh bells. Just has to be taken in small doses and occasionally with a mixer.
Starting off with the brand new single from my very fave local power punkers, Wyldlife. Might not be your usual soundtrack while you're stuffing your stockings, but who am I to say.
The Spiraling track is pure genius.
The Greedies, basically Phil Lynott fronting some Sex Pistols, is another fave.
Speaking of genius, check out Dollar Store reimagining Cher's big autotuned hit, "Believe."
