it's time to bust it out. it's harder as i get older to maintain that warm, happy christmas feeling for a month of the year, but the music always helps to get me back in the mood for the holiday to come.
there's a mix i made in '03 (high school) that i have kept up with and play every time the season comes around. including now as i type this. my favorite:
darlene love-"all alone on christmas"
combined with my nostalgic love of the first two home alone movies and my never-ending love for motown-styled girl groups, this is probably my favorite christmas song. i just found out after youtube searching that this was written by springsteen's own miami steve van zandt!
other songs and albums that are fantastic:
phil spector - a christmas gift for you
