The holiday spirit is coming upon me! Late, as usual. So I decided to make up a holiday mix. I absolutely love original holiday music that isn't the same ten songs you hear everywhere as well as great covers of well-known songs. This mix makes me, personally, super happy. And I hope some of you guys like it as well. It's mostly cheerful with a good dose of introspection and a pretty high incidence of Baby Jesus.
1. X-Mess Detritus - Gerard Way
2. Melodies of Christmas - David Archuleta
3. Baby, It's Cold Outside - Glee Cast
4. Merry Little Christmas - The Academy Is ...
5. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear - Sixpence None the Richer
6. White Christmas - Panic! at the Disco
7. Coventry Carol - The SmashUp
8. Rudy - The Be Good Tanyas
9. Love Came Down at Christmas - Jars of Clay
10. Sing Mary Sing - Jennifer Knapp
11. Pat-A-Pan - David Archuleta
12. Christmas for Cowboys - Jars of Clay
13. Christmas Is Here - Number One Fan
14. Every Snowflake's Different (Just Like You) - My Chemical Romance
15. Auld Lang Syne - The Steve Carlson Band Download
So, at first I was going to just try to stick my favorite anti-holiday tracks in the same mix, but that wasn't really working. So this is like a bonus EP or something. This one is great for if you're ready to just strangle your family/co-workers/fellow shoppers with their tinsel already. Some of these songs really saw me through a couple of years when the holidays were really hard for me. I hope they do the same for you.
