Default Christmas Music!

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"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2mQXQjY130

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

here's the whole side 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37v0CE-pXss

mariah carey - "all i want for christmas"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXQViqx6GMY

Straight No Chaser- 12 Days of Christmas Medley

Straight No Chaser- Christmas Can-Can

Both pretty original, both very high musicianship, both great for those of us who are tired of the same old stuff.

Their holiday album is actually one of the best.
